Last year the energy sector employed approximately 6.7 million Americans – nearly 5% of the US workforce and an increase of 2.3% since the previous year.
As the sector continues to grow, the need for highly skilled talent around the world will be even more important.
The ability to understand this talent market and the cost of obtaining and retaining this talent is a critical factor to ensure continued success for the businesses operating in the energy sector.
Our customer – a diversified energy company headquartered in the US – was experiencing varying levels of rates when bringing on contingent workers onto their teams.
Our customer wanted to better understand this talent market and identify areas they could capture savings within their MSP programme.
They also wanted to attract and retain the key talent needed to drive their business into the future, so they reached out to us.
We quickly got to work and built out a solution to arm the MSP programme team and customer with the processes and tools to capture market-competitive pricing for the contingent workers that were being hired.
This solution was made up of 3 critical pieces:
With this approach our team was able to quickly build trust with both the supply chain and the customer hiring managers.
This allowed for negotiated and market competitive rates across the MSP programme.
Our programme has realised a YoY negotiated savings percentage of 3.72% which increased from 1.37% prior to our solution being implemented.
This ultimately gives the customer over $1.5 million in savings each year.
With the additional $6 million in savings realised from this programme being in place for four years the customer has been able to invest in enhancing various technologies across their business including a multi-regional ERP system upgrade.
