What was the challenge?
We worked with a large public sector organisation which has a high dependence on flexible workers and contractors. They previously had no central process for managing these engagements, with no visibility of the associated costs and no way of easily tracking or identifying the status of each of the workers. This became particularly problematic with the introduction of the new IR35 rules in the Public Sector.
How did we help?
We worked alongside the organisation to review existing internal processes, up-skill teams and implement The Flexible Workforce Hub. This meant that the organisation could engage with workers/ contractors on a centralised platform to manage the IR35 compliance tasks and ensure correct assessments are carried out. They can now send an updated contract appropriate for the type of work and nature of the worker and fix pay rates, shift patterns and contract length.
What were the outcomes?
The organisation now has full visibility over its contractor population, the costs associated with those contractors and control over the length of time each engagement lasts. The technology-enabled approach has streamlined processes and given clear and valuable insight across their workforce.
