Managing Contract and Project Labour now a Must-Have for Companies
Contingent Workforce Solutions was founded to meet the industry need to help companies properly manage contract and temporary human resources. The recession has caused companies to cut back on full-time employees and rely more on cost-effective qualified contract workers. At the same time, baby boomers and Gen Yers are turning to independent contracting to make money in a tough job market, while also learning to enjoy the benefits and flexibility of working for themselves.
In fact, contract and temporary workers now account for more than 20% of most organizations’ workforces while also being one of their largest expenses. “Companies can no longer afford to do without the tools that allow them to account for and properly manage their contract labour,” says Jeff Nugent, Managing Director of CWS. “It’s no longer a luxury item — it’s a need.”
CWS partners with its clients to streamline the management of their contingent workers and ensure their contractors have the work status and health and safety certifications required to be compliant with employment and tax law. Contingent Workforce Solutions’ SimplicityVMS software enables organizations to keep track of and properly administer their contract labour expenditures throughout the organization. In addition to its corporate clients, such as Bank of Montreal, Sobeys, Walmart and Enbridge, CWS’ Simplicity software is also used by recruiting firms that provide it as a value-add to their clients.
CWS is especially honoured to receive this award from the PROFIT HOT 50 amid competition from Canada’s top new growth companies. “The PROFIT HOT 50 exhibits all of the traits that underpin business success,” says PROFIT editor Ian Portsmouth. “With good products, persistent and focused leaders and motivated teams, Canada’s Top New Growth companies have achieved enviable growth rates despite a shaky economy.”
“Our goal is to work with companies and take some of the stress related to managing contract labour off their plates so they can focus on and be more successful at their core business,” says Nugent. “We also want to empower Canadians to not fear becoming self-employed, independent contractors and being more successful. As this self-employed empowerment takes shape, we feel this will lead to more innovation and a stronger economy as a whole.”
