TechServe Alliance recently released the results of a survey of IT and Engineering clients, candidates, and staffing firms that it commissioned from the global firm Inavero.  Since ATR International serves this industry I was clearly interested in the results and I wanted to share some of the thought provoking findings with the readers of Staffing 360.  Click here if you would like to get a copy of the Executive Summary for yourself.  If you are a member of TechServe Alliance you can automatically download the executive summary, full report and other additional information.

Five eGuides That Will Perfect Your Contingent Workforce Program

By ATR International |   Tue, Oct 02, 2012 @ 08:45 AM

I recently attended the SIA’s 2012 CWS Summit in San Diego with a number of my ATR colleagues. We were actually a sponsor of the event for the first time and we had a wonderful experience! The sessions addressed a variety of subjects related to contingent workforce programs. They were interesting and provided great learning opportunities, but, as usually is the case with conferences, the best part was simply the chance to meet and speak with people.

Communication: The Best Practice When it Comes to Your VMS

By ATR International |   Thu, Oct 13, 2011 @ 12:08 PM

VMS and MSP are acronyms that have changed the staffing industry landscape significantly over the past decade and, for better or worse, they are here to stay. I say “better or worse” because my own experiences have sometimes been mixed and I believe, based on anecdotal evidence and published industry analysis, that this is the case for other firms and our clients as well. Good software and well run programs that are embraced by hiring managers can improve efficiency and results while reducing costs. Bad programs range from ineffective to costly; if your systems are complex and cumbersome and your processes are too restrictive and inflexible, managers may grudgingly comply until they find ways around it. Efficiencies will be ephemeral and cost savings short-lived.
