Embracing the Role of a Trusted Advisor: Navigating Success Together 

In today’s rapidly changing business landscape, the role of a trusted advisor holds more significance than ever before. But what exactly does it mean to be a trusted advisor? It goes beyond offering solutions; it’s about building genuine connections, understanding unique challenges, and guiding clients toward achieving their goals with integrity and transparency. Trust, the foundation of any enduring relationship, is cultivated through consistent actions and ethical conduct. 

For Managed Service Providers (MSPs) like nextSource, being a trusted advisor means empowering clients to achieve their business ambitions. In the past, MSPs aided clients in optimizing operational efficiency when engaging staffing agencies to provide contingent workers.  Today, this is merely one aspect of the role.  The MSP must provide a blueprint for effective integration of non-employees into clients’ overall workforce plans.  This includes recommendations on the most effective enabling technology, plans for integrating that technology into the client’s overall technology ecosystem, assistance in implementing that technology, and ongoing oversight of a holistic program addressing all people, process, and technology issues. 

For a deeper understanding of the changing responsibilities of companies, MSPs, VMS providers, and suppliers when implementing and operating a contingent workforce management program, join our webinar, co-hosted by Chateau Consulting, in which industry luminaries explore this issue, providing personal experiences and best practices.
