Movieclips Monday: Translating the value of an MSP
When you leverage a managed staffing provider (MSP), you rely on it to communicate clearly with your staffing supply chain.
One of the most important things is getting the job order right at the beginning of the process. What you need is a partner to help translate what hiring managers have in mind when they request a particular worker or skill.
This week’s Movieclips Monday is a perfect example. It comes from “Wayne’s World 2.”
Much like the giant head in the clip, your MSP must take a job order and translate it into a requisition that makes sense to your staffing supply chain. Often times, there are gaps in the information, or managers with a “fast food” mentality don’t take the time to put together a good job description.
This is where your MSP must become part of your environment, understand your needs, and be able to fill in the blanks. It doesn’t excuse the managers from providing enough details, but one of the values of having an MSP is that it is there to translate and clarify if necessary — before recruiting starts.
So if you are treating your MSP as just a way to save money, or keeping it at arm’s length like any other vendor, you could be missing a very important aspect that an MSP provides: quality control.
