what do “onsite” or “randstad inhouse services” mean?

Ideal for employers with larger workforces (usually 50 or more flex workers), Randstad Inhouse Services uses a Vendor on Premise (VOP) model — meaning you’ll have access to a dedicated consultant who works directly at your location, either in the office or on the factory floor. Our onsite consultants aren’t a phone call away, in other words, but literally there with you to provide services directly. 

Your consultant can assist with a variety of day-to-day tasks: workforce communication, onboarding, training, shift scheduling and more. Most importantly, your dedicated consultant will be immediately available to assist with any issues as they arise, such as filling shifts due to unexpected absences, for example. 

We also understand that each company has different needs, goals and objectives when it comes to recruitment and workforce management. That’s why our model allows your company to pick and choose which tasks and duties you want our team to handle, and which you would prefer to own.

But no matter what types of services your company needs, our end-to-end solutions can help your company improve hiring outcomes and save money. In fact, you should check out this long-term temporary staffing case study to see what that looks like in action.

what makes randstad inhouse services different?

For one, we don’t simply place a team member onsite, walk away and call it a day. Instead, we provide complete inhouse services: Our onsite consultant works side by side with your staff to deal with issues and resolve problems as they occur. It’s an approach that comes with the following four distinct benefits, all of which set us apart from the competition. 

100 percent fulfillment of shifts

We understand the fluctuating production demands of employers in the manufacturing industry. To help you meet these demands, we specialize in helping employers find the right talent at the right time. Our innovative workforce solutions enable manufacturers to scale up their workforces during peak production times, then scale down when production tapers off. 

advanced workforce scheduling 

We’re empowering our clients and their teams with Randstad Relevate Schedule, an easy-to-use digital tool that streamlines the scheduling process, provides greater visibility into your workforce — and puts it all at your fingertips. Now, your employees can communicate their availability, check their schedules or even pick up additional shifts — and they can do it anywhere, any time, from their smartphones. Armed with this scheduling solution, it’s a whole lot easier for you to stay organized and operate efficiently.

customized solutions

We’ve been in the business long enough to know that no two companies are the same, which is why all of our recruitment and workforce management solutions are fully customized. From the outset, our team will take the time to fully understand your business — your processes, goals, objectives, hiring challenges and more. From there, we’ll create a detailed strategy, and tailor it to meet the unique demands of your company.

cost savings and continued improvements

Our number-one priority is to help your company save both time and money by implementing cost-saving strategies and more efficient processes. To ensure you do, your onsite team will be backed by Lean Six Sigma specialists who can track and analyze your business processes — and identify opportunities for you to improve efficiencies while reducing costs. In general, Randstad Inhouse Services has been proven to help employers save two or three percent of their total workforce spend.

how do we measure results — and define success?

We measure success on your terms, period. This means that we align our services to match your company’s goals and objectives. After all, who knows your business better than you do?

Unlike some of our competitors, who frequently enter agreements with their own set of objectives, our team focuses on building true partnerships with clients. We take the time to understand your business processes, identify pain points and obtain a clear understanding of what success looks like on your terms. Next, by providing customized services and solutions, we help your company improve HR processes and drive key talent-related outcomes. 

Finally, we firmly believe in the value of transparency, so you can expect frequent reporting when you partner with our team. Empowered with continuous reporting around KPIs like turnover, fulfillment and attendance, you’ll have end-to-end visibility into the success of our services, the outcomes we’re driving and the progress we’re making to achieve your objectives. This case study from a recent client engagement will give you a good idea of what that looks like in practice.

how do we find qualified talent?

We take a human forward approach to recruitment, combining the power of technology with human insights to help your company hire the talent you need. Plus, we maintain an unmatched network of screened and qualified candidates — and once we understand your unique needs, we can leverage it to identify the right fit. 

Beyond that, we use labor market insights, together with a suite of recruitment tools, to source and hire great candidates. Monster, one of today’s largest job boards, is also one of our subsidiaries, so we have a number of different channels we can use to post job openings and connect with prospective candidates.

what is the cost of our services?

Since we develop customized service plans based on each client’s unique needs, it’s difficult to determine exactly how much our services will cost for your company. But since we always prioritize transparency, even with our pricing, below is a quick overview of the three primary factors influencing costs.

  1. labor: costs based on the number of contingent workers you need as well as their compensation rates
  2. direct services: costs based on the customized services your company requires, such as recruitment, onboarding, training, strategic workforce planning and more
  3. cost savings: costs based on specific outcomes like turnover decreases, productivity improvements or overtime reductions 

Looking for an exact figure — or just something more specific? Connect with one of our team members today to walk through the services your company requires. From there, we’ll be able to provide you with an in-depth estimate of costs.

what’s our approach to talent engagement and retention?

Our research shows that increasing employee engagement leads to higher retention rates, which is why workforce engagement is one of our top priorities. In fact, it’s one of the reasons we provide each client with a dedicated onsite consultant.

Think about it: Your dedicated consultants are going to be out there, on the facility or plant floor, proactively engaging with your workforce and answering any questions they might have. Along the way, they’ll be providing feedback, conducting employee performance reviews, leading training sessions and helping to resolve issues — all of which fall under the rubric of relationship building. 

Plus, because our dedicated consultants are equipped to handle the entire onboarding process as well, they’re in a position to ensure that employee engagement starts on day one of the job.

i already work with other agencies. why should i put all my eggs in one basket?

The phrase “more is better” seldom rings true when it comes to recruitment. In fact, too many people handling different tasks for the same process can easily create confusion, raise costs and decrease the effectiveness of your efforts. 

That’s part of the reason we offer end-to-end recruitment and workforce management solutions at Randstad: to eliminate this type of confusion. Helping our clients streamline these processes typically leads to greater efficiency, too. And we’ve found that when one team carries out the entire recruitment and workforce management process, the result is better outcomes for everyone involved. 

Another major benefit of partnering with Randstad is that you only have to communicate and coordinate with one agency, not several. Meanwhile, your primary contact person will be your onsite consultants, who work day-in and day-out right at your location. As such, they’re also in the best position to not only help you fill hard-to-source roles, but mitigate risks and challenges that sometimes come with long-term temporary workforces.

Taken together, the benefits of these onsite services add up to a layer of convenience and effectiveness that you simply won’t find with any other solution.

Want proof? The team from Randstad Inhouse Services recently helped a global luggage manufacturer build an efficient long-term temporary worker model. As a result, the client was able to reduce turnover, lower overtime and improve fill rates — and do it without sacrificing company culture.
