Using Affiliate Providers to Fill Executive Level Positions

2017 is predicted to be the year of technology, life sciences and industrial sectors when it comes to executive level hiring according to executive search firm ON Partners. That’s a result of the continued economic recovery, digitalization and cyber-security concerns, according to the search firm.


Among the list of top executive jobs in life sciences and healthcare is chief strategy officer and director of virtual medicine, whose responsibility is applying technology to patient care.


When the shoe doesn’t fit

Making the selection for an executive level position is not for the faint of heart mostly because the impacts can have far reaching effects.


A survey of more than 6,000 hiring professionals worldwide conducted by CareerBuilder revealed that 27 percent of the U.S. employers surveyed said that just one poor hire cost their company more than $50,000.


However, the costs go beyond the dollar amount when factoring in negative impacts on employee morale and client contentment. If the erred position is of an executive level the ramifications can quickly balloon.


Increasing your bets  

On the contrary, making the right choice can be a game changer for an organization.


Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.  – John Maxwell


Executive leaders are selected to be in it for the long haul in most cases. They set or maintain company culture and make subsequent organizational and hiring decisions that can have lasting positive change. Success breeds success, and when it comes to healthcare organizations, patient care relies on empowering leaders to pave the way.


With so much at stake with an open executive position, organizations often look for help in identifying the best and brightest talent in this increasingly competitive marketplace by utilizing affiliate providers.


People, process and technology working in tandem

The Distinctive Difference: VMS vs MSP


Although distinctively different, Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Vendor Management System (VMS) function together to help hiring organizations, succeed.

So…want to know the difference? Let’s start with MSP!

A Managed Service Provider (MSP) is an outsourced agency that manages the temporary staffing needs of a hiring organization. Hospitals, for example, often use an MSP to solve the hiring headaches caused by the industry’s current nursing shortage. One way an MSP might handle a client hospital’s staffing needs is by onboarding travel nurses. Overall, AN MSP handles 100% of the client’s contingent staffing needs including:

  • Filling open positions
  • Boost candidate quality
  • Increase vendor visibility
  • Reduce premium labor spend
  • Solve inefficient process
  • Increase candidate submissions

So…what exactly is VMS?

A VMS is a reportable software tool that functions to support the MSP in collecting measurable data including the time and expense per vendor submission. This data collecting software promote vendor manager visibility on various matters for each client’s executive and management team to see. Furthermore, an MSP uses VMS software for:

  • Collecting candidate submissions
  • Candidate interview coordination
  • Job offers
  • Billing
  • Collecting candidate documentation

Premium labor spend, poor candidate quality, inefficient process, slow start management, open positions, low candidate count—work with a vendor manager to conquer it all! Here are tips to help you choose the best vendor manager for you.

The Perfect Fit

You want to find a  vendor management company whose culture fits your companies. Looking on each potential vendor management company’s website is a great place to start! If you still have questions, don’t be afraid to give them a call. When picking the right partner, knowledge is power. The only way to find “the perfect fit” is by seeking out what each option has to offer.

Trust and Reliability

No relationship works without trust and reliability. If you aren’t able to trust your current vendor manager, it’s time to consider throwing in the towel and moving on.

Checking Success

If a vendor management company has had no history of success, it’s best to look elsewhere. By trusting a vendor manager with a poor track record, you’re risking wasting more dollars and precious time. Make sure you do thorough interviews  and don’t be afraid to ask questions that question their track record.
