The Benefits of Implementing a Global Worker Tracker System
Managing a large contingent workforce can be difficult and depending on the maturity of your organization’s contingent worker program, or lack thereof, it may be overwhelming. However, there are alternative options to managing your contingent workforce by using technology platforms that integrate directly to your information systems.
Utilizing a worker tracking system enables you to have full visibility on your entire workforce by capturing your workers’ geographic locations, tracking access levels, salaries, employment status, and other key data points. Each organization has a unique way of tracking and managing non-employees, and typically this data is spread across various departments and is difficult to keep to up to date. Inaccurate contingent worker data can cause internal miscommunication, extra administrative work, and higher risk of compliance errors.
We see organizations who have an increased number of international contractors or who recently experienced M&A activity using worker tracker systems to keep accurate data through ongoing transitions. In addition to those using worker tracker systems to capture worker data outside of their usual scope of business, worker tracking most commonly used as an add-on to a vendor management system (VMS) or managed service provider (MSP) program.
By leveraging a worker tracker system, you can manage your contingent workforce data at an enterprise level by creating customized workflows and easy to use technology to improve on existing foundations. Establishing a system of checks and audits ensures compliance, increases standardization of adoption and reduces the time of the onboarding processes. The system doubles as a system of information for analytics and has the ability to data synch with your tech stack.
The inherit nature of using a contingent workforce to supplement your internal operations itself infers the need for and expectation of adaptation and changes. Using technology as a tool can help make changes on work orders, purchase orders and assignments easier to track and accurately pull real-time, reportable data. Implementing a global worker tracker system is an easier than expected process and can increase your business optics dramatically for strategic decision making.
