Disorganization may be the single greatest threat to staffing agencies. When you don’t keep track of important information and maintain clear communications with staff and clients, it’s a recipe for disaster. That’s why vendor management services (VMS) provide such a vital service for staffing management. This tool facilitates organization, which makes for more effective staffing and reduces opportunities for unnecessary liability to arise. There are three ways a VMS system can help you mitigate risks and reduce liability.
- Manage recruiting: VMS allows you to easily track applicants and the recruiting status of job candidates. With an easily managed system like this, you reduce the liability posed by applicants who are not eligible for hire. You can easily identify these and other of-note candidates.
- Schedule easily: Most fully integrated VMS systems include scheduling capability. A centralized application for scheduling staff at clients’ facilities allows you to see the calendar as a whole and avoid any conflicts that may be present.
- Payroll: A payroll system linked to scheduling allows you to track both your staff’s attendance and their wages easily. This reduces the liability associated with unreliable payroll and makes all staff functions easily accessible.
Vendor management services can make your job easily and eliminate many of the complications it entails on a daily basis.
