Five Steps To Make Your Contractor Management Process Digital

Implementing contractor management solutions, workforce on-boarding systems and automating your contractor control process and credentials renewals are a strict necessity towards demonstrating compliance and your duty of care to your staff, visitors and contractors.

Your time is the most valuable asset you have and your role is to manage a compliant workforce with approved contractors who will be able to continue the deliver services to your organisation during changing times.

When your organisation is a busy environment with many distractions that pull on your time for your attention. What can you do, and need to do to make your working hours that bit easier?

Well, firstly, stop doing all the work manually in spreadsheets, and automate with digital!

Automating your contractor management process and credentials renewals will save you time, and deliver a current, and consistently updated approved contractor database to mitigate risk and protect your organisational reputation.

Here are five steps to consider as you begin to automate the control and management of your contractors and workforce.

1. Identify

Your compliance regime for your estate is going to vary subtly from everyone else’s so it’s critical that you identify ALL the compliance credentials you require from your contractors and sub-contractors. When there are contractors coming onto your site to maintain, inspect, calibrate equipment, or deliver works; you need to identify how you can demonstrate your duty of care.

2. Question

It is good to have a thorough contractor questionnaire or compliance process that solicits credentials from your workforce. Make sure that it has sufficient scope from what you’ve identified to meet your contractor compliance needs.

3. Digitise

Create a digital version of the questionnaire with the ability for contractors and sub-contractors to take their journey through your compliance process. By digitising your contractor management process, you can create a database of all contractors in your workforce and enable the questionnaire to be sent via email so that your contractors can commence and continue to have and ongoing compliance relationship with you.

4. Validate and Iterate

By digitising the questionnaire, enabling contractors to upload documents, and share then over the Internet, you can easily validate each question and refer to colleagues for clarity on information you’re not 100% certain of. With digital, you can improve communication and collaboration with your team, and in the contractor management process accept and reject at any stage and send back for clarity. Significantly reducing the time, it takes towards gaining a fully compliant and approved contractor database.

5. Renew

Once you’ve approved your contractors in your workforce you need to manage them efficiently, especially their expiries. You need to keep track of their provided credentials with an expiry date, so you can efficiently renew and keep your approved suppliers compliant.
Through automating the renewals process you can see at a glance who isn’t managing their document set until the worse thing happens; digital enables you to be have a reactive requirement for a breakdown and your policies and procedures mean that very valuable resource can’t come onto your Estate until restoration of their compliance documents!
