Southfield, Mich.—Sept. 5, 2013—The Bartech Group, Inc., a provider of global workforce management and staffing solutions, announced the win of Phillips 66’s agreement for managed service provider (MSP)/vendor management solution as of July 2013. Phillips 66 chose Bartech to provide management of its contingent workforce due to its approach to cost management, risk mitigation, solution design, delivery and overall consultation.
The contract, implemented in phases over the next few years, initially consists of managing Phillips 66’s contingent labor (temporary workforce) in the United States and eventually includes other locations around the globe.
Phillips 66 is a growing energy manufacturing and logistics company with high-performing midstream, chemicals, refining, marketing and specialties businesses. With more than 13,500 employees, Phillips 66 needed to secure an MSP partner after its spin-off from ConocoPhillips in 2012.
Bartech's diversity strategy was a factor in Phillips 66’s decision. The strategy incorporates a unique program called Diversity Delivers in which the entire Bartech team mentors, supports and ensures successful performance of diverse-owned staffing suppliers, including minority, woman, veteran and disabled-led firms, and historically under-utilized businesses.
National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) President Joset Wright-Lacy said, “The Bartech Group is an award-winning supplier within the NMSDC Network. The selection of this firm underscores the value and commitment Phillips 66 places on supplier diversity, and including minority suppliers in its global supply chain.”
Outsourcing contingent labor strategies allows company resources to address other priorities. Bartech’s phased implementation methodology combines Project Management Institute best practices, and applied experience from years of implementing and transitioning more than 150 MSP programs. The first phase of implementation is taking place at Phillips 66’s headquarters in Houston, Texas.
