Business Issue
:

For over a decade, the client simultaneously had multiple vendors supplying large numbers of contingent labor services throughout all their locations. Each contingent labor vendor had multiple job descriptions and different charge rates for each labor categories. Oft times, competing agencies performing the same type of labor services had charge rates that varied by as much as 36%. Client did not have job descriptions, nor did they know the true geographic market value for the work performed at their various sites.

Benefits
:

Within 3 months, client had reduced job description categories from 136 to 8. These 8 categories were skills targeted and utilized enterprise-wide. Charge rates were consolidated to match the 8 job categories. Job descriptions were written to allow for cross-training of personnel to support infrastructure needs and growth.
