Master Complex Work Force Management Tools With Best Practices From ASA

The evolution of vendor management systems (VMSs) and managed service providers (MSPs) has changed the way the staffing industry does business. ASA created best practices for vendor management systems and managed service providers to help staffing firms master complex work force management tools and better serve their clients. The best practices comprise four documents that address a broad range of topics such as implementation, order and requisition management, candidate submittal, financial management, and staffing firm engagement.

For example, “Protecting the Financial Interests of Staffing Firms and Buyers in VMS and MSP Arrangements” outlines practical steps that staffing firms and buyers can take to mitigate the financial and business risks associated with work force management services.

The VMS and MSP Best Practices page on includes several resources to help alleviate ASA members’ confusion about work force management solutions.
