Finding the Right Hiring Model. Exploring Contract Workforce Solutions.

Many companies look at recruitment in a narrow definition of using a staffing partner to help find a highly skilled candidate for a permanent employment role. But there’s more to it than that. Contract employment is another common solution, but one that admittedly earns less time in the spotlight. Since workforce challenges are unique at every company, we thought it would be worth diving into the details. Let’s explore the advantages of this model.

Many companies look at recruitment in a narrow definition of using a staffing partner to help find a highly skilled candidate for a permanent employment role. But there’s more to it than that. Contract employment is another common solution, but one that admittedly earns less time in the spotlight. Since workforce challenges are unique at every company, we thought it would be worth diving into the details. Let’s explore the advantages of this model.

 

So firstly, let’s get the name out of the way. Some people call it technical assistance, since it’s getting a technical expert on your team to lend a hand. Some people call it consulting or contract staffing solutions. Even though there are a few different names, the actual service doesn’t change. Contract workforce solutions involve bringing on highly skilled professionals for a defined time period.

 

There are a few scenarios where contract solutions are the best way forward.

 

  1. Fixed-Term. 

    Contract staff is the perfect solution to manage increased workloads for a specific period of time. Experts can be hired as contractors for the exact duration of the project with no further obligations once completed.
  2. Urgency. 

    When a skilled professional is needed urgently, contract solutions shorten the hiring cycle dramatically. Internal recruitment can be slow at the best of times. Not only can highly skilled experts hit the ground running adding value from day one, but in many cases contract staff can start work within a matter of days.
  3. Highly Specialized.

    When a role is difficult to fill permanently or requires a unique set of skills that are hard to find, contract workforce solutions are ideal. In a competitive market where certain roles are in incredibly high demand, turning to contracting staff solutions is the best way to find the most qualified, sought-after professionals quickly before the competition does.
  4. Flexibility.

    Contract recruitment allows companies to scale their workforce up and down to match project demands. When there’s no work, no operations capital is wasted with employees sitting idle waiting until the next project arrives.

  5. Short-Term Cover. 

    When a key staff member needs to step out of work for a few weeks or even months, it can bring operations to a standstill. Business waits for no one though and clients expect results. Contract workforce solutions are the ideal approach to resolve the interim dilemma with the expert talent to fill the gap.
