How To Centralize Recruiting Efforts and Streamline With MSP/VMS

Managing recruiting and hiring efforts for an organization can be a costly and time-consuming endeavor. Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Vendor Management Systems (VMS) alleviate the burden by taking on responsibility for hiring and managing the company’s contingent staffing processes. Here are just a few ways an MSP/VMS can help centralize and streamline your recruiting efforts.

“Service Level Agreements allow us to navigate though centralizing the recruiting process and deploying the right Agile teams. Change management is successful when you have executive support and a good understanding of the companies strategic goals and culture. Call the experts if you would like an evaluation of your approach towards handling volume contingent labor.” Says Sharon Tsao, CMO, Contemporary Staffing Solutions.

Single Point of Contact

Whether you’re doing all of your staffing and recruiting in-house, or you work with multiple staffing partners, keeping track of the process and the costs associated with each hire can be an exercise in futility. You have multiple contracts to keep track of, each with its own terms and pricing structures.  When you work with an MSP/VMS, you cut out the administrative and communication hassles.  Your organization will have a single point of contact for all needs, and each month, a single bill to pay.


Keeping up with compliance is another administrative headache that can keep your internal HR team bogged down – especially if you employ a large contingent labor force. Outsourcing through an MSP/VMS, however, removes that burden from your team. The right MSP will ensure that every hire meets any and all regulatory and legal standards, reducing your risk and keeping your internal team focused on more strategic tasks.

Faster Access to Talent

MSP firms can work much faster than your internal team or even a traditional staffing firm. It’s not uncommon for organizations to have hiring processes that take up to 90 days – even for contingent workers. MSPs can accurately turn around a job order in much shorter order, often times in days, rather than weeks or months.

Quality Control

No matter how streamlined a hiring process may be, it can be instantly derailed by bad hires. An MSP/VMS is only successful if it provides ongoing quality control. They continually judge their vendors on metrics like speed and accuracy, allowing you to eliminate vendors who are unable to meet standards.

Cost Savings

Working with an MSP/VMS allows you to keep greater control over your recruiting and labor costs. A single, streamlined process reduces the costs of hiring and eliminates the hidden costs like administrative time.  Because MSPs engage in competitive bidding with vendors, you are guaranteed maximum savings, ensuring you’re paying a fair and reasonable price for services.
