Cost saving opportunities in the HR consulting services market

The adoption of cost optimization levers allows buyers of HR consulting services to not only realize direct cost savings but also enhance category management and value benefits (including the reduction in procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the HR consulting services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Cloud-based HR solutions for payroll, HRMS, performance management and talent management are increasingly being adopted in the market. Firms are moving toward a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to achieve operational efficiency and revenue growth.

Mobile-based applications are the new tools for recruitment, training, and performance management. The adoption of mobile applications will result in ease of administration for HR as it is employee-driven.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers should have a supply base that has the right mix of global and regional service providers. They can engage with global suppliers when they require high levels of expertise and requirements across various geographies and rely on regional suppliers for short-term assignments and to obtain savings on procurement costs

Category managers should have a pre-defined set of parameters and KPIs to measure the performance of suppliers. This should be established during the contract negotiation stage and scorecards should be shared intermittently to help improve performance.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers should hire suppliers that offer digital consulting solutions in the form of mobile applications or the automation of HR processes as it improves operational efficiency, reduces costs, and helps them stay competitive in the market.
