The outsourcing strategy called staff augmentation is used to staff projects on a per-need basis in order to better meet business objectives in a flexible way. The process begins with evaluating current staff to determine which additional skills are required and ends in utilizing outsourced services and consultants for a specific amount of time to fill those needs. It’s become extremely popular lately, with an abundance of available technological resources and declining costs making it easy and affordable for the companies who need it.
Recruiting and hiring a full-time team when a project is looming can be extremely time-consuming and expensive, and there’s no guarantee that you’ll get it right. Staff augmentation enables you to get the help you need on a scalable basis, offering convenience and efficiency.
Here are 3 additional benefits of staff augmentation:
1. Time-Saving Experience
Augmenting with experienced, specialized consultants, often at the height of their careers, allows you to move forward with confidence. They won’t need as much training, oversight or assistance to accomplish their goals. They bring their considerable skill set to the task at hand and free up your time to focus on the bigger picture and your own responsibilities.
2. Cost-Saving Quality
Hiring a full-time employee for a specific, short term, project is not a cost-efficient process. With salary, benefits, taxes and insurance to start, a full-time employee is a costly investment to get up and running. Augmenting staff on a project basis allows you get the the same quality expertise without those additional upfront costs.
3. Flexible Resourcing
The timing of hiring contractors or employees to service external clients is always a challenge for any business. If a project is delayed, you’re stuck footing the bill for idle workers. But if you don’t hire on time, you won’t have the resources to cover the new workload. Staff augmentation allows you to gain the professionals you need, when you need them, and keep them only as long as necessary, alleviating this common staffing headache.
Staff augmentation provides the expertise of long-term professionals without the financial commitment of hiring full-time employees. They are carefully selected for their skill set and to fit within your company culture and objectives. When you have temporary needs to fill, are initiating a new project or line of service, or simply need to get a new initiative off the ground, it could be the best solution for you organization.
