AMS and TalentNet partner to curate contingent workers for the growing flexible workplace

CLEVELAND, OHIO, TORONTO, ONTARIO – AMS (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions), a global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services, and TalentNet, the industry leader of direct sourcing technology, formally announce their ongoing partnership to provide contingent labor direct sourcing solutions to U.S. organizations. The two companies have been successfully collaborating over the past 12 months to build talent pools of pre-qualified contingent workers for clients looking to leverage their brand to attract candidates, a growing trend among businesses. According to a 2021 Staffing Industry Analyst Report, 60% of survey respondents plan to explore direct sourcing in the next two years, more than any other workforce strategy.

“Direct sourcing requires a combination of expertise that includes curating robust talent pools and delivering technology solutions that seamlessly help clients attract and manage contingent workers,” said Mark Jones, Executive Vice President, AMS. “As a result of our successful deployments for several Fortune 100 clients, we have developed an incredibly efficient operating flow that allows us to control costs, increase quality, focus on diversity and increase speed of execution, which are all critical for companies looking to ramp up hiring in an extremely competitive market where brand identity matters more than ever.”

As contingent positions have become more important, companies have chosen to differentiate themselves from the competition by harnessing their brand and providing a better candidate experience. AMS engages candidates by leveraging TalentNet’s technology, which delivers real-time job matching with a white label platform design that highlights the client’s brand and values. The combined solution easily integrates with leading Vendor Management Systems to centralize candidate data and provides visibility into the candidate’s skills, interests and availability, enabling better worker utilization, increased worker quality and significant cost savings.

“In an environment where access to talent has become more acute, companies need to change how they attract and manage contingent workers,” said Justin Lumby, Chief Operating Officer, TalentNet. “By engaging with them as valuable members of the team with the same priorities as full-time employees, organizations will not only be more successful at recruiting this talent pool, but also at creating a loyal workforce that returns for multiple engagements.
