Spend Matters Catches Up With Kevin Akeroyd to Discuss His Vision of the Future of Contingent Workforce Management

POSTED BY PRO UNLIMITED | November 20th, 2020

In a recently posted article, Andrew Karpie of Spend Matters details how “there have been rumblings in the contingent workforce industry about MSPs needing to bring more value to the table.”

Karpie reviews how “much in the staffing and contingent workforce market environment has changed over the past 20+ years, including business requirements, technology, business models and other factors” with many of these changes “accelerating particularly in response to COVID-19.”

Karpie discusses these challenges with Kevin Akeroyd, CEO of PRO Unlimited, as well as Akeroyd’s view of the contingent workforce industry and where he envisions PRO in this new landscape.

Here is what Akeroyd had to say:

“I'm going to start with the people, and maintain our world-class service delivery and flawless execution. That's been the hallmark of an MSP for 20 years. And it needs to continue to be because at the end of the day, while the technology platform is what’s going to enable the step-function transformation for the C-Suite, there will continue to be a strong need for tech-enabled managed services as well. But what I think is missing, is you also need to have the advisory, analysis and business intelligence/decisioning people offerings. I don't want to get into management, consulting or build an HCM practice. But there's a big layer we need to step up into, there's this higher end advisory component that we are putting on top of traditional staff aug, MSP, etc. We literally sit on decades of experiences, hundreds of Fortune 1000 experience, we’ve seen trillions of dollars of spend, and we sit on petabytes of industry data. We are the only player with these assets, and I can’t wait to harness them and begin delivering value for our clients and partners with them.”
