Building Cost-effective Temporary Staffing Services by Leveraging Cost Modeling Techniques

SpendEdge’s recent cost modeling analysis of the temporary staffing services helps companies in the IT industry to gain visibility on key cost drivers, supplier cost structure, and cost saving aspects of procurement.

Understanding the cost drivers for temporary staffing services

Temporary staffing is contractual based hiring for unforeseen circumstances such as maternity leave, sick leave, peaks in workload, and staff shortage. The flexibility in managing the workforce during peak business and organizations’ need for good quality and cost-effective staffing solutions with shorter TATs is driving the growth in this market. This form of recruiting is advantageous during specific periods and provides an opportunity to the organizations to test new employees before hiring. The service providers in the market are focusing on technological innovations such as ATS and CRM systems to manage the large pool of talent base that suits the requirements of the customers. The suppliers are also bundling core recruiting services with corollary services such as testing, background checks, and contracting to save costs and offer better services to the clients. The team of research experts at SpendEdge offer a clear understanding of the cost drivers, along with valuable information on ways to facilitate judicious price negotiations.

The integration of applicant tracking system (ATS) will help automate the recruitment processes and reduce the amount of paperwork. Many recruitment agencies are adopting ATS technologies to gain a competitive advantage in the recruitment services market. The adoption of integrated ATS will streamline the resume sorting process, which will result in saving time consumed by going through every single resume. An ATS system is designed to help track candidates’ activity to ensure placement quantity, and screens resume to ensure placement quality.
