it’s time to rethink your talent strategy.

According to our latest Talent Trends research, 61% of businesses in Germany say they continue to experience talent scarcity in IT, while 26% say they can’t find enough qualified candidates for HR roles. Added to this, more than 1 in 10 employers need more finance and accounting specialists. 

Operating in a notoriously talent scarce market, what talent strategies can give your business the competitive recruitment advantage it needs? In today’s unpredictable environment, workforce agility is critical to helping your business recover and grow. At the same time, you need tools like market intelligence, talent marketing strategies and skilling programmes to ensure a wider, deeper and more sustainable talent pool long-term.

Randstad Sourceright provides the talent acquisition strategies, market insights and recruitment technologies you need to give your business a competitive recruitment edge.

direct sourcing.

build your own managed talent pool

With direct sourcing, your organisation has access to ready-to-go managed talent pools of contingent workers. As well as minimising or eliminating third-party suppliers and their associated costs, you develop a loyal base and have closer relationships with the flexible talent you need for business growth.

Direct sourcing also gives you the opportunity to leverage your employer brand to attract and deploy talent who are familiar with your business, fully engaged and committed to their assignments.

Randstad Sourceright uses a combination of sourcing and marketing expertise, together with technology to help you with contingent workforce management. Your business reduces time to fill and costs by instantly tapping into an engaged and committed flexible workforce.

statement of work (SOW) management.

gain transparency, increase savings, improve supplier performance

Do you know the hidden cost of SOW based services in your organisation? Are all your contracts fully compliant and visible? Managing contracts and suppliers across your organisation can be complex and time consuming. 

Taking control of your contracts with SOW services procurement brings visibility and cost efficiencies to every stage of the service life cycle. You gain insights at both an individual engagement level and across your organisation. Under a managed SOW solution, your programme is also supported by a vendor management system (VMS) that automates some or all of your SOW life cycle stages, offering full visibility.

Randstad Sourceright SOW management solutions create efficiencies, ensure compliance, promote high service quality and uncover savings. Many clients have achieved double-digit savings on one of the largest categories of human capital-related costs.

managed services programs (MSP).

maximise the benefits of a flexible workforce

If you’re one of the 72% of German employers that say their talent strategies are more focused on workforce agility than ever before, you may also be planning to shift more roles to contingent this year. But without a centralised approach to contingent workforce management, how will you control the costs, compliance risks and speed of hire?

A managed services program (MSP) gives you full visibility over your contingent workforce, including contractors, freelancers, SOW talent and gig workers. Using talent analytics, supplier rationalisation, market intelligence and 4.0 strategies, like direct sourcing, MSP can deliver faster access to skilled professionals while helping your organisation gain greater agility.
