While an extended workforce can offer many benefits, it also brings clear risks that many organizations unfortunately fail to properly manage.

Proforma Screening Solutions, a Virginia-based employment screening company, announces its latest guide which highlights the benefits and risks of extended workforce staffing.

Consisting of temporary, contract, and contingent labor, the extended workforce currently comprises more than one-quarter of the total workforce, according to some studies. And while contingent employees often have the same access to company assets as traditional employees, a surprising 65% of companies fail to uphold the same employment screening requirements of their contingent workers.

The 12-page guide explores key topics associated with risk management and employment screening for an extended workforce, including factors driving the extended workforce trend, balancing risks and rewards, a self-check of risk management practices, and best practices of contingent workforce screening. The guide is available as a complimentary download on the Proforma Screening website.

“The extended workforce plays a vital role in today’s leading organizations, providing flexibility, specialized skills, innovation, and labor cost control,” remarks Michael Gaul, VP of Proforma Screening Solutions. “And while an extended workforce can offer many benefits, it also brings clear risks that many organizations unfortunately fail to properly manage,” he continued.

According to Proforma Screening, organizations are beginning to recognize that regardless of the payroll category a worker may fall under, it is a simple matter of smart risk management to make certain all workers in similar roles are held to the same screening criteria.

Closing the risk and security loophole by instituting a clear and well-managed extended workforce screening program can help your organization minimize the risks and reap the rewards of this flexible, skilled, and cost effective mode of staffing.
