Contingent Talent Solutions

Flexibility and rigour for better results

Contingent workforces is expected to become the norm in future. We ensure the value of a contingent workforce continues to provide reduced fixed costs but overall, we improve worker quality and better governance. Amongst other aspects, we provide a total solution around contingent workforces including our popular Managed Service Provider solutions.

Why choose CF Projects

  • Managed Service Provider: We work with around 140 companies across the emerging markets helping achieve on average, an overall 20 % reduction in our client's talent expenditures.

  • Services Procurement: We bring a one or two step improvement in service provider quality, standardisation and expertise in specific domains through our services procurement solution.

  • Direct Sourcing: We develop purposefully made strategies using various techniques to build a talent community of contingent candidates.

Contingent workforce is hard work and as our margins are wafer thin, it's all about volume. Somehow, CF from our HQ in Europe referred us to better equip us to maintain quality in people, source better talent and even as a surprise, reduce our hiring costs. All in all, it relieved fixed cost stress and we now look at talent lesser as a "cost" and more as "value add".

Historically, we have never really been very good at managing service providers, although as a financially disciplined firm, we ought to be. In the end, we realised an unbiased and specialised skill-set to allow us to manage talent acquisition firms could save us money and drive efficiency in easy we couldn't foresee. It was a headache to implement at first but CF made it easier by being more persuasive than I'd expected in our firm at the time, "politically charged environment". They cleaned up shop.

As a local brand, I know we could attract anyone for our firm. A test phase with CF Projects made me realise we were not attracting the best and available talent that I initially thought. Availability was a key theme – CF showed us that we were not utilising our referral network properly, reaching out to inactive potential candidates, activating existing people in our database and reaching out to people beyond conventional reach. The project takes time to implement but I now feel confident I almost have the best available talent on a continuous basis.
