At TriFinance, the Federgon quality label 'certified member project sourcing' (CMP) adorns each of our contracts. The label ensures our clients that they work with an ethical and reliable external partner. As ever more companies are deploying project-based specialists, the label also gains importance.
Increasingly, companies are deploying external specialists for a short period or a long-term assignment. Federgon, the sector federation of HR service providers, has developed a quality label that enables professionals to work in a safe and responsible environment: Certified Member Project Sourcing.
Reliable and ethical providers
Companies carrying the label, such as TriFinance, guarantee fair wages and employment contracts, in line with social and fiscal legislation. "Whoever carries the quality label 'Certified Member Project sourcing' does not, for example, engage in social exploitation and bonded labor. A CMP stands for fair pay, sustainability, and corporate responsibility," says Kristoff Temmerman, TriFinance business leader and chairman of the Federgon expert group on project sourcing. "This way, clients can count on working with a reliable and ethical service provider for their projects."
Beacon of trust
The CMP has been a fundamental part of TriFinance for several years now because it perfectly fits its values. As a result, TriFinance's Kristoff Temmerman was appointed chairman of the Federgon committee 'project sourcing.'
According to Temmerman, companies are increasingly drawn towards external parties that bear the label. "The reason is twofold", he explains. "Firstly, as more and more companies are deploying external specialists, the number of suppliers grows. So for companies, it's often difficult to know whether you're engaging a reliable new partner."
Secondly, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become the norm for most companies. "And engaging external parties bearing the 'project sourcing' label is a safe choice", Temmerman adds. "That way, companies assure themselves to comply with the complex Belgian workforce laws, they avoid unpleasant surprises, and they meet their CSR standards."
