GRI, one of the world’s leading extended workforce solutions providers and a wholly owned subsidiary of MSX International (MSXI), has formed a strategic partnership with Brightfield Strategies, the leader in workforce analytics. The relationship will bring GRI’s Global 1000 clients a new level of data-driven strategies and program management built on the company’s proprietary workforce analytics solution.
“Our clients depend on our expertise as they invest billions of dollars in their extended workforce programs, and they’re right to expect program strategy and operations driven by the most sophisticated analytics,” said Art Knapp, president of GRI. “Adding Brightfield’s Talent Data Exchange (TDX) platform to our existing analytics platform will create more sophisticated benchmarking and analytics that will enhance the strategic value of our offering for our clients. This supports our ambition to be the industry’s leading global strategic extended workforce solutions partner, positioning us as the most analytically-driven provider in the market.”
Brightfield’s CEO, Ron Mester, noted, “Every week we hear from global companies that managing suppliers and ensuring requisitions are filled is the minimum expectation for an MSP. What they want is an MSP that uses analytics to save money, find and secure better talent faster, and make their hiring managers happier. We’re thrilled that GRI will use the TDX platform to do just that.”
According to Charles Megaw, operating partner with Bain Capital and MSXI board member, “We’ve recently completed a comprehensive evaluation of the market, and it’s clear that workforce analytics will be the most important factor differentiating MSPs going forward. It’s also clear that Brightfield’s TDX platform is by far the most advanced, sophisticated platform for contingent workforce analytics on the market today. We fully expect that the combination of TDX and GRI’s incredibly talented professionals will be of unmatched benefit for GRI’s clients.”
