This is key to understanding performance, service and direct cost relative to the market, which is why outsourcing contracts regularly require providers to compare and even match their pricing to typical market standards. In addition to the traditional benchmarking gap analysis, Attract Retain Advisory can recommend action steps to align your provider's service mix and your outsourcing benchmarking objectives to create a lasting, mutually beneficial business relationship.

Transparency of BPO providers pricing and market level. AttractRetain Advisory tool bag of models has been designed to deliver consistent and actionable results, uncovering price discrepancies or other problematic elements within pricing structure by leveraging our deep experience and knowledge of HRO RPO & staffing.
Total Contract Value (TCV) is derived from obtaining the right balance between price and solution. Our objective to our clients is to ensure a balanced contract equally weighted between risk and price is achieved during the negotiation phase of each deal.
Contracts whether HRO, RPO or staffing should undergo a review and evaluation:
• Prior to contract sign off
• Yearly as part of the account management
• 6 months before contract renewal/termination date
Ensuring our clients have the relevant information prior to any current or future negotiations with HRO, RPO or staffing provider (whether its a complete contract renewal or just a small service amendment).
The relationship between an end user and provider is a critical key in successful outsourcing contracts. We help our clients to build a relationship management structure to identify existing and potential relationship issues and provide a plan to optimize value realisation.
Outsourcing is ultimately about value and cost mitigation, clients should be able to benefit from the provider's specialization and knowledge with HRO, RPO & staffing. Since this combination can create a strong, lasting business relationship if benchmarking is used to assess differences and help align the objectives of both client and provider.
