NelsonHall’s HR team has undertaken a review of our programs and in response to customer feedback and market requests and will be launching a Managed Services Program (MSP) in 2014. The MSP program will supplement the already established HR programs:

  • Multi-process HR BPO services.
  • Payroll Services
  • Benefits Administration
  • Recruitment Process Outsourcing
  • Learning BPO.

The new Managed Services Program (MSP) demonstrates NelsonHall’s commitment to the HR field and in combination with the other HR programs, will provide the most comprehensive HR analysis on the market. Growth in the Recruitment Process Outsourcing is the highest of all the service lines. The scarcity of key talent and the increasingly global nature of employment markets has seen a market develop to even serve director and interim management positions. NelsonHall’s MSP program will evaluate:

  • What is the market size and projected growth for the global MSP market by geography?
  • What are the top drivers for adoption of MSP?
  • What are the benefits currently achieved by users of MSP?
  • What factors are inhibiting user adoption of MSP?
  • Who are the leading MSP vendors globally and by geography?
  • What combination of services is typically provided within MSP contracts and what new services are being added?
  • What is the current pattern of delivery location used for MSP services and how is this changing?
  • What services are delivered from onshore and which from offshore?
  • What are the challenges and success factors within MSP?

The NEAT (NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment) tool will be applied to the MSP service line. NEAT is part of NelsonHall’s “speed-to-source” initiative.  It sits at the front-end of the vendor screening process and consists of a two-axis model: assessing vendors against their “ability to deliver immediate benefit” to buy-side organizations and their “ability to meet client future requirements”.

The NEAT analyses themselves are based on a combination of vendor and client interviews. The vendors are scored against a wide range of criteria, establishing a number of scenarios, each with different weightings to represent a different business situation or client business need.

To add further value in speeding up the sourcing process clients are able to input their own weightings and tailor the tool to their requirements. So they might say:  “This set of weightings for this business need looks about right to me but I want to place more emphasis here". With this interactive tool, they can tailor the weightings to meet their own specific sourcing requirements.

If you would like to participate in or join the MSP program, please contact Guy Saunders.
