IT Staffing

Wise use of Staff Augmentation Strategy is critical to achieving your business goals. While there is no hard and fast formula for determining the best mix of staff ("permanent") employees versus augmented employees, you can maximize your effectiveness and minimize your costs by following some basic principles You should hire full-time employees only for roles that require a deep understanding of your core business and directly affect that core business. Consulting and temporary employees are best utilized for all other roles. Consulting, Staffing and Staff Augmentation should be used when:

Filling the Gap - when a business increase demands greater labor inputs

A New Project - Unexpected work or new projects necessitate a temporary boost in labor resources.

Timely Response - There are times in all of our business lives when we are placed in a "crunch" situation. Intelligent use of Staff Augmentation Services allows you to respond on a timely basis during these stressful periods.

Specialized Knowledge - There is always information or skills that we do not have, and need immediately, for a discrete period of time to implement a technical project or plan.

Knowledge Transfer - When information or particular skills are needed by your staff, and are needed quickly. The use of a AppShare consultant can bring vital skills into your company and transfer that knowledge to your employees, effectively and efficiently.

Testing the Waters - when you believe that there is a market upturn, but is not ready to make the long-term commitment necessitated by a staff employee.

Cost Reduction - Consulting, Temporary and Contract Employment programs almost always cost less than directly hiring an equivalent internal employee.

Keeping Head Count Down - It is always in a company's best interests to keep the head count of staff employees down. Consultants, Temporary Employees, and other Staff Augmentation programs allow the flexibility of staffing up, or down, as your business environment dictates.

Staffing Up - Consultant to Hire and Temp to Hire programs are frequently the most cost effective ways of bringing on new staff.
