Hirers / Employers

In order to maximise efficiency and profit many large organisations rely on the support of a flexible trained temporary workforce. Typically these workers are supplied by temporary work agencies in the form of agency workers.

Artifice® provides the platform with which hirers and employers can ensure effective "end to end" transparent supply chain control.  Artifice® will give you full management & control of all agency worker bookings, automate cost control and purchase reconciliation and ensure that your temporary work agency(s) maintain a compliant workforce.  

The Agency Worker Regulations 2010 means that agency workers are entitled to the same basic terms and conditions of employment including "pay" as your full time comparator worker in the same job, after 12 weeks working on assignment for the same hirer.  You will probably want to make sure that your agency workers are getting treated fairly but how will you know?   Well Artifice® will give you total visibility of all cost allowing you to control pay & charge rates and margins. Artifice® will automatically calculate your temporary worker costs "real-time" allowing you to reduce your administration cost while you stay in control.

Artifice® will provide automated control regardless of whether your suppliers operate pay/pay parity or Pay Between Assignment (PBA) supply model.

"In-house staff banks" are out of scope of AWR and Artifice® will prove the perfect tool for you to establish, manage and control your own bank of flexible workers including any "top up" agency labour that you may wish to procure.

Artifice® is cloud technology and will allow your company to maintain a central database that can control recruitment, work/job scheduling, resource allocation & confirmation, automate time and attendance, automate payroll and purchase reconciliation ensuring absolute control of your entire flexible workforce no matter how many locations / sites you operate. Artifice® is the ultimate forward planning solution for managing your temporary labour recruitment needs.
