Taxonomy & Rate Optimization

Establish a new and streamlined taxonomy for your unified workforce, fully aligned to the needs of your business.

Contingent Workers

Poor rate compliance

Reputational risk

Supplier complaints

Worker classification

Inconsistent application of job level

Worker tracking

Multiple versions of the same job title used

Pay parity

Poor cost visibility

Temporary workers

Market rates largely informed by suppliers

Contract labor

Managers circumventing sourcing processes

Gig workers

Poor digital talent attraction and retention
