Staff in participating Harvard schools/departments may identify suppliers of hourly-billed contingent labor they wish to use – generally, or for an upcoming requisition – by contacting the DZConneX PMO.
DZConneX will assess the request, and if the supplier strengthens the supply base or fills a specialized need, they will begin the enrollment and contracting process. The manager will be informed when the supplier is in the program and Fieldglass system, and ready for requisitioning. If DZConneX declines to enroll the supplier, or the supplier declines to...
The terms of DZConnex’s contract with enrolled suppliers say that DZConnex should be involved, and serve as the intermediary, in any discussion with suppliers about the needs or requirements of a Harvard hiring manager, or about potential candidates for assignment at Harvard. This is because Harvard has asked DZConneX to create and sustain a vendor-neutral, competitive sourcing environment for all requisitions.
No. Search services to fill posted Harvard (non-temporary) jobs are not in scope; however, some enrolled MSP suppliers may also offer or provide search services to Harvard separately. Contingent workers supplied through the Program may also convert from "temp to perm" if they are hired by Harvard as a result of their temp assignment. When this happens, the supplier may be entitled to a conversion fee.
Yes. Part of the value that DZConneX brings to the partnership with Harvard is managing our supplier relationships for contingent labor. In the event that unwelcome contact continues, managers are urged to contact the DZConneX PMO.
Yes, but DZConneX will participate in meetings and discussions with suppliers, and may suggest that additional suppliers be included as well.
This is because the new model is predicated on supplier neutrality. For example, when a worker is proposed for an assignment at Harvard, identifying information about the supplier will not be visible. The idea is to foster a competitive, supplier-neutral sourcing model for the best talent.
In many cases, hiring managers will welcome Yoh acting as a participant or intermediary in this process. In other cases,...
If they are enrolled in the new Managed Services Program, yes.
All vendors and staffing agencies currently providing contingent workers to participating tubs are invited to participate in the program. Once they join the program, they will have the opportunity to submit resumes for job requisitions posted in Fieldglass. The DZConneX PMO will shortlist candidates based on qualifications. Note that this is a vendor neutral selection process and hiring managers will no longer see the name of the supplier on a resume.
There are three factors that will reduce this tendency. Suppliers enrolled in the program have agreed to standardized mark-ups, which are enforced in Fieldglass. Most requisitions will be competitively-sourced, with multiple suppliers competing for Harvard's business. Third, hiring managers make the final decision on which candidates and rates to accept.
Once enrolled in the program, suppliers will have the opportunity to propose contingent talent for all requisitions and grow their business across Harvard. Additional benefits for suppliers will include:
access to a Vendor Management System that allows them to more easily respond to requisitions and manage contractor assignments;
a streamlined billing process which results in faster payment;
access to other Yoh customers;
the opportunity to participate in supplier forums that provide valuable...
