Workforce Agility, Visibility, And Accountability

Contingent Workforce Management for Energy & Natural Resources Industries

Today’s energy and natural resource industries, including oil, gas, and electricity production and transmission companies, depend heavily on a workforce composed of up to 80 percent contractors and contingent workers.

Along with small cadres of direct employees, these contingent workforces help energy companies manage their fixed costs while adapting quickly to dramatic market changes.

To manage this extended workforce, industry leaders turn to vendor management systems (VMS) and managed services providers (MSPs). These technology and service solutions not only automate the contingent staffing process. They source and manage all types of talent and employ sophisticated workforce analytic tools to turn program metrics and other data into business intelligence their energy clients can apply to make better workforce decisions.

Build An On-Demand Workforce With Contingent Labor

Using a contingent workforce enables energy companies to employ workers wherever and whenever the need arises, anywhere in the world. Often companies need unique skills that are not readily available in every location and geography, so specialist skills need to be imported, often for a defined period of time. The best way to do this is with a nimble, on-demand workforce of contractors or contingent workers.

Valuable as this workforce can be, each worker and the process by which they are engaged must be properly managed. Mistakes in the energy industry can be highly visible and very expensive. If something goes wrong, it can be catastrophic for the company’s reputation, its workers, its shareholders, and for the environment.

This is why so many energy companies, including America’s three largest vertically integrated oil and gas providers, have chosen VMS solutions from Beeline to source and manage their contingent workforce.

How a VMS Powers Contingent Workforce Management

Many of the reasons energy companies cite for choosing Beeline VMS

Cost Savings

A VMS helps eliminate rogue spend. Beeline VMS clients can gain hard dollar savings by consolidating suppliers and negotiating savings or discounts. They also gain soft dollar savings through process improvements like consolidated invoicing, reduced timecard and invoice errors, and compliance tracking.


A VMS tracks all contingent workers – who they are, where they are, what they’re doing, and what facilities, systems, and data they have access to. Using our services procurement capabilities, energy clients can even source and manage complex statement of work (SOW) based contracts – including all contractors attached to each project.


A VMS ensures that all workers are properly classified and monitored to mitigate potential exposure to regulatory risks, including tenure and worker classification/co-employment violations, a major concern in energy-related industries.


A VMS allows contingent workforce program managers to measure and analyze the performance of all suppliers and non-employee workers. This quality measurement is essential for companies working to optimize the mix of employees and non-employees to achieve specific business objectives.

Operational Efficiency

A VMS automates all talent acquisition and management activities, including required contractor screening and vetting procedures, reducing the time to fill positions, and making the entire procure-to-pay process more secure and efficient.

HSE Analytics For Risk Mitigation

Contractors and contingent workers not only comprise up to 80 percent of energy Industries’ workforce. For many companies, this means that 80 percent or more of Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) risk can be hidden in this non-employee workforce as well.

Beeline’s research shows that HSE analytics are essential to measuring and mitigating supply chain risks related to contractors —and Beeline knows how to make those analytics available.

For companies required by U.S. or international regulatory agencies to report Tier 1 and Tier 2 contractor incidents and regularly capture other leading and lagging indicators, Beeline’s SmartView® analytics and Scorecard functionality can help you manage your asset integrity and HSE programs.
