Winning business models of the future will need to be flexible. By this, we mean for example, a businesses would need to be able to double their sales without significantly increasing the number of employees. This may sound impossible, but it is not. TBS has worked with and developed a number of outsourcing solutions which would be considered flexible business models within numerous industry’s.

There is nothing wrong with having employees. However, the complexity of a business rises with the number of employees. If you can grow sales without growing employees, your business will be much easier to run. Some businesses require an employee-intensive business model. However, a non-employee intensive model is a usually better and easier to run model in most cases.

Technology is one of the driving forces in the growth of Flexible Business Modeling and it will continue to grow as more businesses better understand how to use outsourcing with the proper technology interfaces that make their staffing transparent to their clients. As long as the products and services provided are delivered in an acceptable manner at a fair price the clients will not be concerned about whether any staffing was outsourced.

Case Study #3:

Outsourced Floor Installation Contractors

Floor covering stores have historically been hiring subcontractors to handle their floor installation needs once they have sold any of their floor coverings as a supply and install service. Most flooring retailers have practiced this so they would only need to pay the installers when they were working and not in idle down times when business is not as brisk. Additionally the work takes place at the clients residence or place of business and is out of site and control from the retailer which would allow for the installers to work at their own pace which would end up costing the retailer higher labor costs. Using subcontractors if there is even a small job assignment and the installer is done in half of a day the retailer only needs to worry about the agreed upon installation fee and not paying them as an employee for the entire day.

Recently however the IRS has been coming down hard on retailers that subcontract all of their installations. One of the larger flooring retailers, Lowes was charged with paying their installers as 1099 contractors when they were actually being treated like employees and had to sign exclusivity agreements and work under Lowes scheduling orders. They were eventually fined and had to pay the contractors taxes as they were found to be employees under the Independent Contractor rules governed by IRS.

TBS has developed a solution for outsourcing to a third party vendor(TBS) that allows multiple floor covering retailers to select their installers from the list of flooring contractor profiles in the Outsourced Flooring Contractor Platform.  They would then be in complete compliance with the IRS rules for hiring independent contractors as the retailer is actually having the labor supplied by a Third-party thus voiding any responsibility toward the employer-employee relationship.

Further Benefits of the Solution:

  • Unlimited supply of qualified flooring installers for an agreed upon installation fee as outsourced contractors supplied by a third party staffing vendor that receives a percentage over and above the agreed upon fee for the management services provided.
  • Flooring contractors will be experienced fully qualified professionals as the retailers will be instructing those that have already been providing them installation services in the past,  that all future installation work will be run through a third party staffing firm. Installers will then need to setup a profile within the TBS Flooring Contractor Platform to have access to any of the retailers future installation work.
  • The floor contracting management platform will provide access to the flooring retailer to allow them to select the contractor they wish to perform each job. Once the job has been completed and the retailer signs off that they are satisfied the system will release funds to the installer through the automated platform.
  • Quality of work and cooperation with both the retailer and their clients will likely improve as each job assignment will be rated by the retailer. Since their will be several retailers within a geographic area selecting installation contractors for the same system those with more favorable ratings will likely gain more work assignments.
  • Retailers will be able to scale their business and have access to a much larger pool of installation resources and select those which have the best qualifications.
