Three entities are critical to ensuring the successful acquisition and retention of a contingent workforce: the client, the managed service provider (MSP) and the suppliers who deliver talent. When a symbiotic relationship exists among each of these parties, success will follow. Clients receive the right talent, at the right time and at the right price. MSPs fulfill their vision of helping organizations unlock the potential of the extended workforce.
