What exactly IS a Contingent Laborer?
The Department of Labor classifies any independent contractors, part-time, temporary, seasonal, and leased workers as Contingent Workforce. Employment trends indicate a significant increase in Contingent Workforce reliance from US Companies, and VMS Companies continue to respond to these trends; though system hacks are not always functional and may be putting your company in jeopardy.
Is your VMS putting you at risk?
Capturing various classifications of Contingent Labor should be distinct and reportable. XSI takes pride in adjusting to our customer’s workforce ecosystem to meet their business objectives. Taking a look at the types of Contingent Labor can better help us understand the complexities.
By failing to have a good grasp on your worker population, you put your company at significant risk. It is imperative that all non-employee workers are documented, classified appropriately, reportable, and accessible at all times. Our system is accommodating and responsive to worker classification and offers modules to support the various flexible workforce options the market provides.
But, it still has to work
Business risk aside, we also have to focus on the functionality of the tool you’re using. Is it simple and functional? Do your users try to take shortcuts rather than using the system?
Many systems on the market have made significant attempts to create serviceable models from existing framework. Sometimes, it works great! Other times, it’s more trouble than it’s worth. We recognize this at XSI, and focus on simplicity in design and usability. By keeping our system concise, we have the ability to customize, configure, and create functionality for our customers.
