30 Great Places to Work 2021
The number of companies using temporary staff and the number of workers currently in temporary jobs are at an all-time high. The myths surrounding temp work have been dispelled and the negative connotations surrounding the industry are long gone. Now more than ever, people are seeing the benefits of temporary staffing. From administrative work to manufacturing, warehousing, IT, and everything in between, temporary staffing is a trend that just keeps growing, in virtually every industry. For many companies, temporary staffing is an integral part of their overall business strategies. Being able to better manage labour needs when supply and demand fluctuates can mean the difference between a profit and a year in the red. Temporary staffing is important to their bottom line. It allows employers to save on costs like benefits, RSPs, and vacation and sick days. Globally there are various companies providing excellent temporary staffing services but Neuven Solutions Limited stands out from the rest. Neuven Solutions are a neutral vendor in the temporary staffing sector. This means they are not linked, in any way, to a staffing provider.
The benefit to Neuven’s clients is that they can give impartial advice on agency, locum and bank staff management without risking being compromised by the desire to divert bookings to an associated recruitment company. The ever changing workforce landscape presents many challenges, and traditional recruitment processes can create additional complexities for any organisation. Which is why neutral vendors like Neuven exist – to consolidate and simplify contingent workforce management; delivering transparency, efficiency and compliance in a fast-paced, competitive employment sector. Neuven’s neutral vendor service centralises the management of agency suppliers to ensure you have full visibility of your contingent workforce provision.

Neutral vendor model
Managed Service Provider (MSP) firms are typically recruitment outsourcing organisations who are affiliated to, or own, a recruitment agency within their wider stable. MSPs will manage your recruitment, reducing the number of recruitment firms that are on your preferred supplier list, in most instances to direct supply towards their in house recruitment agency, while additionally looking at direct hiring tactics. Master Vendor (MV) solutions are typically run by a dominant recruitment firm which is charged with filling all of a client’s temporary recruitment needs. Normally the MV will then farm out jobs to other recruitment firms at lower margins if they’re not initially able to fill the positions within a certain time period. Normally a Master Vendor will try and dictate candidate pay rates, margins and commercials with the client as they are the clients only route to market. Direct Supply is where a client deals directly with a panel of recruitment agencies. This can get complicated very quickly, with each recruitment agency working to their own individual terms and conditions, rates and margins. Without careful and diligent control over the panel of suppliers and their rates, costs can quickly spiral out of control. Customers who implement a neutral vendor solution for the provision of temporary staff, either through recruitment agencies or direct hire, will be able to achieve the following demonstrable outcomes:
Implementation of a neutral vendor model typically takes between 1-3 months. Implementation plans can range from wholesale change across all locations or specific regions, to a slow build up with different sites going live on an individual basis. Neuven’s neutral vendor model is designed to never cost clients money, either through the implementation or day to day operations.
