Changing the Way Companies See Workforce Management

A Fresh Approach

Providing everything from advisory services to complete program management, The Workforce Alliance brings together industry experts to create unparalleled strategic programs.

Too often, workforce management solutions are viewed through an inflexible, one-dimensional lens that benefits the provider, not the client.  The Alliance, founded by Pipeline Talent Solutions and composed of industry experts, is a ground-breaking strategic solutions model supported by a conflict-free partnership structure.  Our partnership represents what its members believe is the model of the future, one where industry leaders from different sectors come together to creatively solve problems and generate truly specialized, client-focused solutions.  Beyond that, the Alliance offers continued guidance and expertise so programs evolve as business needs grow and change. 

The Alliance grew out of conversations among industry veterans around the need for a solutions provider to have many distinct areas of expertise, which they agreed no one vendor could credibly develop and effectively deliver.  The best way to solve that big, complex problem, they realized, was to establish an ecosystem that operates using a unified, integrated model within which the various providers operate with the common goal of serving the client’s needs.  The team takes the necessary action, which may include workshops, evaluation of existing structures, and strategic planning to create the roadmap to success.

The Alliance members are also looking to the future.  By working together while still maintaining individual clients, the team believes they will be able to more efficiently and effectively create optimal solutions as they learn from each other.  This community has the opportunity to draw on their experiences together and apart, refining their processes along the way.  While the Alliance is becoming an industry-leading solutions provider, it will also focus on providing thought leadership. The entire Alliance team is excited to change workforce management and, more importantly, your company.

  • IC Precheck

    A separate venture led by the highly-regarded team at SFS, IC Precheck was launched in 2017 to provide contractor-based certification, disrupting the traditional approach to contractor screenings and client engagements. The company has already garnered industry attention and an impressive client list. Regardless of company size, IC Precheck’s clients are relieved to have a trusted resource where they can outsource their worker classification processes, offload their misclassification risk, and efficiently screen and onboard their freelance talent.

    Michael Matherly and Ken Hernandez, the company’s founders, serve as COO and CEO, respectively. Over their combined 25 years in the strategic sourcing sphere, the two personally experienced the archaic, time consuming, and often unreliable processes used for compliance screening and onboarding independent contractors. IC Precheck grew out of Michael and Ken’s desire to create a simpler, faster and more effective compliance delivery model, enabling clients to access and safely engage independent freelancer talent.

    The company provides three separate and distinct client-based compliance solutions: IC Precheck certification of freelancers; full IC compliance screening; and agent-of-record services. All service levels include appropriate levels of client indemnification against IC misclassification risk and all contractors are required to participate in the proprietary IC Compliance & Best Practices Training. The company also maintains, in conjunction with legal counsel, Compliance Rules Engine to stay current with state, federal and other jurisdictional regulatory actions, decisions and case law.

    IC Precheck keeps its clients safe by taking on their IC misclassification risk and managing it closely throughout the entire contractor life cycle.

  • PGC Group

    A global provider of employer of record services and solutions, PGC was founded nearly two decades ago in Seattle, offering comprehensive administrative strategies – managing payroll, taxes, insurances, benefits, contracts, and day-to-day human resource matters — to the market. As the demand for their services grew, PGC became global, now calling New York City home with offices in San Francisco and London.

    Beyond its direct solutions, PGC also acts as a consultancy for its clients, offering expertise, knowledge, and guidance in the areas of workforce engagement strategy, compliance, benefits, and other human resources functions. The company’s experts work across industries, including technology, recruitment, finance, light industrial, IT, design, and pharmaceutical.

    A few years ago, the PGC team realized building its own technology to facilitate program management was an essential step to creating a simpler, more efficient, secure process for clients to use.

    Precision, the resulting platform, was created so clients can interface easily, setting up individualized platforms supported by personalized service that can solve their complex HR management issues. Every PGC support team is created to meet individual client needs, staffed with rigorously-trained experts.

  • Sourcing for Services (SFS)

    Sourcing for Services was founded in 2014 and was one of the first companies to recognize the need for specialized services to help companies manage their SOW spend. Co-founders Michael Matherly and Ken Hernandez have successfully managed many strategic sourcing, procurement leadership, and professional services programs including SOW and stand-alone SOW programs, including a more than $500 million SOW program at a Fortune 100 financial services company. That experience led to the development of one of the industry’s first SOW workflow automation for a top-tier VMS provider.

    When Michael and Ken realized the dearth of solutions available, they drew on their own experiences as procurement and sourcing practitioners.

    Their management model doesn’t look like others in the marketplace, with three distinct differences: entry point methodology, sourcing and contract experts, and an extension of the existing client procurement team.

    By offering three entry points, SFS is able to integrate virtually ant SOW category or individual transaction regardless of category maturity or operational definition. Providing on-demand shared services support gives clients access to experienced analysts and consultants who have specific skills to address individual client needs. When the SFS team can work as an extension of the client’s existing procurement team, the internal team can focus on the more strategic, higher spend, and higher profile sourcing needs while SFS takes control of un- or under-managed SOW spend incorporating the client’s business practices.
