Bartech Named World’s Leading MSP

By: David Barfield, CEO

In its definitive ranking of the world’s leading managed service providers (MSP), HRO Today placed Bartech in the #1 position, naming us the best of the best in its MSP Baker’s Dozen.

We never set out to be the biggest, but we have always dedicated ourselves to being the best… the best in quality, the best in service, the best in value. As the MSP Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on client feedback, it is incredibly gratifying to know that our clients recognize and appreciate the dedication of the Bartech team. I am proud to lead such an outstanding group of professionals, committed to serving each and every Bartech client as a trusted strategic partner.

As the leading benchmark for service provider differentiation, the Baker’s Dozen serves as an important barometer of quality and value for those new to the industry. It also serves to continually set the bar higher, pushing providers to essentially up their game, partnering with clients to uncover new ways to drive strategic value in the temporary labor market. We welcome that challenge.

When Bartech entered the contingent workforce management space in 1998, we traversed a frontier at the brink of transformation. Operating with little structure or governance, the introduction of innovative VMS technology provided the means to establish a solid framework for order and stability in talent acquisition. As revolutionary as that technology disruptor was to the industry, there remained a clear gap that was swiftly filled by the managed service provider. Our role at the time was that of facilitator. We introduced disciplined processes, encouraged value-based relationships and blazed a new trail to talent leadership. Doing so delivered substantial benefits to our clients in the form of lower cost, reduced risk, improved efficiency, higher quality of talent and greater transparency across the board.

The workforce and the nature of work continue to evolve, as does the role of the MSP. We work in close partnership with clients every day, guiding their journey to transform the process of talent acquisition in pursuit of a high-performance workforce that is actively engaged in supporting and advancing client goals for growth and profitability. This is an exciting time to stand at the edge of discovery in a changing landscape, where value is measured not merely in dollars and cents but in creating opportunities to leverage the inherent value of the workforce as a competitive advantage.
