FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. –
“In the early nineties, Spherion pioneered the concept of on-site staffing management with the original On-Premise solution and we are again breaking new ground with the On-Premise HQ offering that is designed to meet the unique characteristics of a headquarters location,” said Gary Peck, president of Spherion Staffing Group. “Spherion Staffing is once again demonstrating its commitment to finding new and innovative ways to provide our clients with the most qualified flexible staffers while saving them both time and money.”
Offering services that go beyond the basics of recruiting, screening and retaining a flexible workforce, the Spherion On-Premise team utilizes proprietary technology to track costs, monitor performance and provide on-demand reporting for flexible staff. Top Executives and managers at corporate headquarters have specific needs for their flexible and full-time workforce because they set the culture and goals for the entire organization, service a variety of internal and external customers and have multiple departments requiring a diverse skill set. Every component of the On-Premise HQ program was crafted to address corporate agendas for a higher-performing, cost effective workforce that understands and supports corporate objectives.
“We are very excited to offer On-Premise HQ and have been met with great success from our existing clients and prospects alike. Because over half of our existing On-Premise sites are located in corporate headquarters, we had the ability to assess their needs and develop a program based on our knowledge and experience,” said Peck. “With On-Premise HQ, we continuously measure and report our results against mutually–established partnership objectives that positively impact business results for our clients,” Peck said. “This solution makes Spherion the ideal partner for on-site workforce management at corporate headquarters.”
On-Premise HQ addresses the following four areas:
Culture – It is important for flexible staff to understand the unique corporate culture and quickly assimilate into it. On-Premise managers create a customized certification program for flexible employees to help them learn company history, mission, goals and expectations.
Department needs – The Spherion On-Premise HQ managers, located at the headquarters, ensure that all associates have the necessary skills to meet the specific needs of every department. Associates are also provided with extensive e-learning opportunities to advance both hard and soft skills at no additional charge.
Internal/external customers -- Because corporate headquarters have many departments and external contacts, On-Premise HQ offers Online Exchange, a customizable proprietary portal that enhances communication between managers, Spherion staff and flexible employees. Through Online Exchange, corporate officials can requisition staff, retrieve up-to-date expenditures and review performance reports. Flexible employees can use the Online Exchange to process time records and reference critical information to complete their assignments more efficiently.
Executive team – Access to information on the value of the flexible workforce is critical to top executives. Reports that include expenditure and trend analysis, industry comparisons and performance metrics will be delivered to top executives on a quarterly basis. The proprietary software used for On-Premise HQ tracks costs, monitors performance and provides a detailed comparative analysis for continuous process improvement and quantitative saving analysis.
