Using Tech to Stay One Step Ahead of Changing Legislation

Legislation is ever-evolving and unpredictable; especially when dealing with high-churn temporary workers, staying up to date can be a challenge. It’s an unavoidable responsibility for all MSPs and can be costly to maintain. However, falling behind can cost you even more: clients, industry reputation and even fines.

Too often, essential know-how is siloed within certain teams or with specific individuals. This creates bottlenecks, slowing down registration waiting for answers. In cases where sufficient training and information simply aren’t available, compliance is severely put at risk.

Deciding between costs, efficiency and compliance isn’t a choice MSPs should have to make. Whilst compliance is a core requirement, it shouldn’t cost productivity, profitability, or essential business hours.

With the right VMS, however, it doesn’t have to…


Updated VMS vs Traditional Setups


Most tech setups for temp worker processing don’t have built-in legal know-how. This means hirers are forced to allocate time and money to admin as well as compliance training. Many of these setups involve multiple fragmented software, requiring manual operation. This only increases the risks and timescales of temp worker registration.

The right VMS will be built with temporary workers in mind. An optimal VMS won’t require you to be an expert on temp labour legal and governance. Instead, it should offer an easy-to-use interface, allowing you to easily navigate registration with bulletproof compliance. This is something which should be regularly reviewed and updated by the provider, allowing you to focus on profitability WITHOUT taking time away from core operations.


Features To Look For:


  • Cloud-based: A cloud-based system allows your VMS to regularly update in line with latest legislation—without extra cost or disruption. On-site licence software is often out-of-use during updates at the expense of core operations, however cloud-based systems are able to update without affecting functionality.


  • Purpose-built for Temp Labour: An optimal VMS should offer a framework for compliance, purpose-built for temp labour (something complex tech stacks lack). With this, minimal knowledge should be required, as the VMS should provide prompts, reminders and guidance through registration and compliance.


  • Automation: With a cloud-based, automated VMS, you can receive compliance prompts and notifications in real time. This means you can identify risks immediately and receive detailed guidance on solving them. Built-in legislative knowledge backed up by automation, can move workers from vacancy to hire faster and with complete compliance.


Increase Compliance and Reduce Costs with VMS


With a VMS dedicated to temp labour, you can compliantly engage top-quality workers without extra costs or time. It’s an optimal way to streamline your registration process, meaning less resources spent on avoiding liability and more on core business. With the burden of compliance reduced and registration efficiency increased, you can focus fully on securing success.
