Join our live webinar on August 14th to learn how your organization can utilize contingent workers to meet your customers’ demands.
Over the course of the next 10 years, 70% of field service organizations will lose their highly-skilled technicians through retirement. As these technicians are retiring, a new crop of technicians are arising: contingent workers. In fact, it’s predicted that contingent workers will make up about 25% of the global workforce.
But as the labor gap widens, the needs of your customers and organization grow as well. An organization that expands its operations geographically and diversifies its workforce, can reap significant benefits from hiring contract workers. They can be utilized to fill areas where you don’t have full time coverage or in cases of high demand, when an employed technician can’t reach the location fast enough. Another added benefit are the special skills that contingent workers may bring to the table that are simply not economical to maintain in-house. This could allow field service organizations (FSOs) to process not only a higher number of work orders but handle emergency calls and catastrophic events more efficiently and effectively.
Defining areas where contractors may benefit you best and creating a strategy that balances your full time and contingent workers is key.
Many FSOs are intimidated at the thought of managing geographically dispersed contractors and thus don’t take full advantage of the benefits that may come with contractors.
Alliance Enterprise, a comprehensive field service management software (FSM) solution from Astea International, coupled with WorkMarket, an intelligent online platform and marketplace for businesses to manage freelancers, enables intelligent scheduling and management of both full time employees and contractors to facilitate the right balance of labor supply to meet your target SLAs.
