At Broadleaf, we’ve been in the business long enough to know that managed service programs (MSPs) are an effective way for companies to handle their external workforces. But, for organizations looking to maximize cost savings, attract better talent, and enhance their forecasting abilities, should they think of MSPs as standalone solutions?

In our latest white paper, Adapt & Adopt: The Future of Talent Management, we explore how workforce management is changing—and how a more comprehensive and integrated approach is becoming the new industry standard. This single, unified offering is called a total talent management (TTM) program. What are the benefits of TTM? Here are five quick takeaways.

  1. Engages contract workers, direct staff, independent contractors/freelancers, and service/SOW vendors.
  2. Offers total talent visibility, identifying which type of worker is best suited for a critical project.
  3. Aligns real-time needs with appropriate resources to optimize requirements of each function, project, and initiative.
  4. Increases compliance with federal, state, and local labor laws.
  5. Offers a centralized source for all talent needs.

The future of workforce management will be shaped by TTM. But what are the challenges of implementation? In our white paper, we offer three key factors to consider when implementing a TTM program:
