Agile•1: Keeping Doors to Opportunity Open for Employers and Their Associates
When employees leave, companies can now do more than wish them well. A strong corporate alumni program can foster relationships that allow these resources to be quickly leveraged for future projects, referrals, sales leads and even brand promotion. This is key at a time when opportunity exists—provided companies have the right resources immediately available to capitalize on emerging trends.
As part of the larger ACT•1 Group, AppleOne is affiliated with Agile•1, a global provider of supplier and contingent workforce management (VMS), employee applicant tracking and recruiting (ATS), automated Independent Contractor management (IC), and versatile project management (PRM) technology solutions. In concert with its Supplier and Program management services, Agile•1 is a total workforce solutions provider. Association with Agile•1 gives AppleOne clients access to total workforce solutions—including a corporate alumni program—from a company that ranks among the industry’s Top 10 VMS/MSP solutions providers, as reported by Staffing Industry Analysts.
Much like university alumni programs, corporate alumni programs promote the vested interest that former employees, retirees, interns and contractors have in an organization’s success. Alumni are kept engaged as part of the corporate family, encouraging information sharing, referrals and lead generation as the company and its alumni draw on their collective resources.
“We are finding talent who would welcome the opportunity to return to work for their former employer—even if only on a contract basis,” said Peter Carvalho, Chief Operating Officer of Agile•1, the technology and managed services flagship of the ACT•1 Group. “In fact, according to a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report, 83 percent of independent contractors find that they prefer contract work to a traditional job.”
