Simplify Your Contingent Hiring Process from Req. to Check

With a rapidly changing workforce and new pressures to do more with less, the status quo approach to contingent staffing is putting HR executives in a bind. Sure, you’ve heard about MSPs and seen any number of VMS solutions, but what you really need is something that saves money while delivering better talent, more efficient processes and more control over the end-to-end requisition to payment cycle. At IQNavigator we listened to HR executives and assembled a top 10 list of key capabilities for services spend management – learn how these critical factors can reduce your overall cost and improve efficiencies in the hiring process.
