Front Door: In the News
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - July 21, 2021: Utmost, the first extended workforce system, today announced the launch of Utmost Front Door, the single place for hiring managers to request any worker category regardless of how a person is engaged. Front Door is the first and only solution to guide hiring managers to the proper classification and sourcing channel in today’s distributed workforce. This means reduced costs and worker misclassification, and a simplified hiring manager experience.
“Nearly 47% of the total workforce is now considered ‘extended,’ as more and more talent is comprised of contractors, staffing agencies, professional services firms, and more. Hiring managers need an innovative and seamless way to navigate through these workforce options. Utmost’s Front Door offering enables managers with those options, as well as fostering collaboration between HR and procurement teams that want to fully control the entire process for any type of talent request.”

Self Assessment: Is Front Door right for your organization?
Today’s workforce is demanding flexibility, engagement, and a user friendly way to connect with prospective employers. If you’re not providing this, you may lose out on top talent to your competition. To know where your company sits today, start with the following questions:
Does my organization have one centralized place for all worker requests regardless of how we plan to engage them?
Having multiple systems for requesting contractors, full-time workers, and project-based workers is cumbersome and opens you up to risk, not to mention frustration from managers and talent.
Are we being strategic with our talent sources in today’s distributed market?
In this competitive market, finding talent through multiple channels is critical. If you don’t have a single system that can manage contractors, freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors, outsourced workers, and more, you could be missing out on top talent.
Are we open to risk from worker misclassification?
Misclassified workers can raise overall workforce costs by 5-10%. What's more, it puts you at risk for additional regulatory compliance concerns.
Is our hiring process user friendly to both hiring managers and the talent we’re looking to attract?
Having one system for all talent requests saves managers time and provides a seamless user experience for all talent, regardless of how they are engaged.

What Makes Utmost different from a Vendor Management System
Traditional VMS technology is incapable of providing a scalable solution for total talent management
Simplifying Talent Sourcing for Hiring Managers
