HR professionals are notoriously busy — so automation that takes care of all your repetitive tasks sounds great. Even better: the robots are way off taking on the really interesting parts of the role…
Give a robot a simple task, and it’ll do it in a second. Teach a robot to analyse the results, and you’ve got a very difficult task on your hands. Robots can’t do everything, which is why human emotional intelligence will continue to be so important.
AI can iron out the productivity issues in the workplace and support the development of new tech to help solve the bigger issues.
Any contractor management programme must address the following areas: fitness for the role, compliance (including AWR, IR35 and umbrella company), onboarding, ongoing management and performance monitoring.
It is not uncommon for up to 60% of contractors to be sourced and engaged directly by your business, or for these contractors to not have compliance checks in place or those that are up to date. This represents a significant risk to your organisation, especially in relation to IR35, Ltd company, and if operating in a high-compliance or regulatory environment. A contractor management solution can mitigate all these risks in addition to ensuring retention and return on investment.
Our contractor management team will support the hiring manager in monitoring performance and managing any performance-related issues that arise.
Utilising an experienced contractor management provider ensures your contractors are working within the regulations of IR35 and enables you to view data and intelligence, providing visible assurance.
A contractor management system (CMS) provides centralised control over the contractor onboarding, compliance, engagement and management process.
