Staffing Industry: History and Perspective
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) August 14, 2008
Companies face a wide range of staffing challenges today. Growing competitive pressure has increased the need for a cost-effective way to find the right employees at the right time -- and at the right price. A new white paper series from HCMWorks, Inc., a leading provider of consulting and business process outsourcing solutions, explores these challenges and analyzes the available solutions. The Thought Leadership in Human Capital white paper series is available free of charge at http://www.hcmworks.com.
The first white paper in the Thought Leadership in Human Capital series, "Staffing Industry: History and Perspective," provides an in-depth analysis of the evolution of the staffing industry over the past 60 years, including the benefits and disadvantages of the various staffing service models. This historical perspective provides insight for any company working with staffing services and independent contractors.
The second white paper, "Diamonds in the Backyard," examines how one company found savings of $40 million in their contract labor program while continuing to acquire and maintain the intellectual capital required to compete effectively in an aggressive market.
Future white papers in the series will cover these topics and more:
- The Value of Truly Neutral Vendor Management Programs
- Balanced Pricing on Services Procurement
- What to Look for in Selecting the Best Vendor Management System Tool
"Human capital comes with a number of challenges but also with tremendous growth potential when it's managed properly," says Ted Weyn, founder and Managing Partner of HCMWorks. "That's why we developed this white paper series examining the staffing and contract labor issues key to any company using light industrial workers, IT consultants, administrative support, or consultancies on a contingency basis."
