On-Site Program Management

For a large corporation, the ability to respond quickly to market shifts is critical to driving business results. An effective MSP understands your key objectives on a quarterly, annual, and long-term basis, and gives you a clear view of important factors that indicate which direction both the market and your internal operations may be moving. By tracking the performance of staffing suppliers, an effective MSP also gives you the ability to make strategic decisions on investments with partners whose talent makes the greatest impact on your business.

On-site program management can include:

  • Reporting and scorecards around key deliverables
  • Management of employees on assignment
  • VMS tool administration
  • Software solution customization
  • Invoicing and payroll customization
