Keys to CW Success - Choosing a staffing vendor: It's all about the journey

Yes. No. No decision. No matter the end result, we are keenly interested in how you arrived at it when you chose your staffing vendor. Staffing Industry Analysts is partnering with Primary Intelligence to uncover how buyers of contingent labor determine which contingent workforce vendors to consider. What criteria do you use to make your decision? Which vendor did you select and why? What should vendors be offering to address your unique needs?

"One of the most interesting overriding themes that has come through so far is the idea of fully understanding how vendors find, recruit, and retain talent," shared Jessica Bledsoe of Primary Intelligence. "Several respondents have noted how important it is to get into the details of the vendor's operational structure -- beyond the sales process."

With each contribution to this independent, unbiased study, we expect to discover insights and best practices that you can apply in your next buying cycle. So, talk to us if you are a decision maker who has gone to market within the last six months to 12 months and selected a contingent workforce vendor.

In exchange, for your time and candor, you'll get:

  1. Contingent Workforce Best Practices white paper -- Identification and analysis of the best practices decision makers like yourself have implemented to address their specific business needs and problems.
  2. Contingent Workforce Solutions Buyer's Guide white paper -- Identification of strengths and weaknesses of providers' solutions from the perspective of you and your peers. The information will enable decision makers to make better informed and more efficient decisions based on specific needs.
  3. 12 Months of Data Access -- Access to all of the data completed for the study to help you with future decisions. This includes a unique login to the Primary Intelligence portal where you can read individual decision profiles.
