We often hear about companies implementing new projects, but their full-time staff is already working overtime. An overloaded staff will undoubtedly lead to undesirable results. So how do you find the right talent to implement these projects with risk mitigation, quality control, and cost leverage? Enter staff augmentation.
Staff augmentation is an outsourcing strategy that refers to hiring specialized and skilled professionals on a scalable, per project basis. By hiring external staff to work in-house, augmenting staff helps bridge the gap between hiring full-time staff and working with a remote team.
Companies choose to augment staff among a variety of staffing services. Here’s how staff augmentation can benefit your business.
Benefits of Staff Augmentation
- It saves you time and money.
A full-time employee requires a salary, benefits, and other expenditures for their labor, which can be a costly commitment. Staff augmentation allows companies to hire for the short-term needs of the business without compromising on the quality of talent they bring on. This form of outsourcing can save business owners money and increase profitability by decreasing overhead costs and training costs.
2. It gives you more control and flexibility.
Staff augmentation also gives businesses more control and flexibility by allowing managers to hire more quickly based on specific skills. That way, they can stay focused on results and bottom line of their organization.
3. It gives you access to a skilled talent pool.
Staff augmentation and short-term hiring provide firms with a large pool of skilled professionals. Plus, bringing a project-based consultant into your company or project allows you to adapt quickly and create dedicated teams around specific skills, products, or technologies.
4. It helps you scale your business.
By eliminating costs while still hiring top talent for specific projects, companies can scale their business faster than if they were to recruit new, full-time employees. This means companies can take on more business and clients without sacrificing the quality of work or spending money on full-time employees.
5. It provides you with an objective and focused workforce.
Since consultants are hired to complete specific projects and meet deadlines, they often approach these tasks with an objective eye or outsider’s perspective, which can be beneficial for a company with ongoing projects. A pair of fresh eyes can not only improve the outcome of your project, but it can also increase productivity and ideas.
