ATLANTA and DALLAS, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Randstad Sourceright (Randstad), a global talent leader and an operating company of Randstad Holding nv, and Pinnacle Technical Resources (Pinnacle), a leading provider of workforce management solutions, today jointly announced that Comcast Cable has selected the companies to co-manage its Managed Services Program (MSP). Randstad and Pinnacle will operate as one under the Comcast Contingent Solutions Program to deliver a solution that combines diverse leadership, decades of experience and a global reach.
As the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to residential customers, Comcast Cable is working to shape the future of media and technology. To meet this goal, the company employs a large and growing workforce of qualified professionals, and supplements its workforce with contingent workers and managed services. The joint offering from Randstad and Pinnacle will support Comcast Cable to drive innovation in its contingent labor acquisition program and identify key talent to help deliver market-leading products and services to its customers.
"The co-MSP relationship with Randstad and Pinnacle provides us with a robust contingent labor acquisition and management process, supporting innovation and cost efficiency. Additionally, the partnership brings a meaningful contribution to further diversity within our supply base," said Peter Kiriacoulacos, Chief Procurement Officer for Comcast and NBCUniversal.
Comcast Cable selected Randstad as one of its MSP partners for the company's global reach, size and consistent approach. Pinnacle, a Hispanic- and woman-owned firm and a leader in working with diverse suppliers, was selected to provide industry-leading MSP services, as well as to help advance Comcast's Supplier Diversity Program, which is designed to promote, increase and improve the participation of diverse businesses within the company's supply chain.
"Through our extensive breadth and experience, we can offer a comprehensive approach to Comcast Cable and deliver a complete solution to meet their most challenging demands," said Teresa Creech, president of MSP and Payroll and Independent Contractor Solutions (PICS) for Randstad Sourceright. "We are pleased to work with Comcast to capitalize on the strength and global reach of Randstad Sourceright to provide them with a market-leading solution."
"Comcast is an iconic, globally-respected brand, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the team to offer best-in-class solutions to its contingent labor needs," said Nina Vaca, CEO and Founder of Pinnacle. "By selecting a minority-owned business, they have shown their commitment once again to creating opportunities for American small business, and specifically for Hispanic business. We commend them for choosing diverse suppliers that reflect the faces of their customers, employees and investors, and we will do our part to honor that commitment."
Beeline, a global leader in software solutions for managing the flexible workforce, will serve as Comcast's vendor management system (VMS) provider for the joint Randstad and Pinnacle MSP offering.
