Doing Business with McGraw Hill
As of June 2016, McGraw Hill implemented a Vendor Management System (VMS), Fieldglass, and a Managed Service Provider (MSP), AgileOne, to assist McGraw Hill with our contingent labor program. Please note this is currently only for domestic contingent labor, not goods. The MSP process and VMS tool will affect traditional temporary workers, suppliers, and independent contractors/freelancers. This solution enhances our current process of managing contingent workers. For current partners of McGraw Hill that fall in the contingent labor space, expect to receive further information directly from AgileOne when onboarding your organization if you have not been onboarded already.
Contingent Labor is defined within McGraw Hill as the following Supplier types:
Traditional Temporary/Staff Augmentation Workers; hourly workers that are provided to McGraw Hill via a staffing agency or a professional services organization by either the recruited workforce method or directly pay-rolling pre-identified individuals.
Independent Contractors/Freelancers; individual with 0-8 W-2 employees. Independent Contractors are working with McGraw Hill under contract with outlined deliverables and resources in order to complete a project in a specific timeframe.
Supplier SOW Company/Project Based Workers; Organization with 9 or more W-2 employees that offer project based workers. Supplier organizations are working with McGraw Hill under contract with outlined deliverables and resources in order to complete a project in a specific timeframe.
