Upstate Works – Summer 2022 Newsletter

Iroquois Healthcare Association is launching an Exclusive, Members-Only contingent staffing program “Upstate Works.” This program was designed as a true member benefit, giving member hospitals the ability to decrease their reliance on high-cost traditional staffing agencies, thereby cutting costs, and providing the opportunity for greater staffing agency cost management.

Upstate Works will be branded and marketed by IHA. The program however will be managed in partnership with Healthcare Workforce Logistics (HWL), a third-party technology and management services provider that specializes in providing contingent workforce management solutions. This partnership provides IHA members with all of the benefits of having their own temporary staffing program, but without having to build an organization necessary to support the many required components of such an operation. This partnership with HWL will provide W2 employment to contingent staff through a third-party Employer of Record (EOR) at a standard markup which is 10-20% lower than traditional agency bill rates.
