IT Staff Augmentation is a resourcing service that consists of evaluating your existing IT staff, determining what additional skills are required and then effectively filling those roles with experienced outsourced contract workers. In this way, staff augmentation aims to staff an organization according to its current objectives or staffing needs.
For project-based organizations who are constantly in a state of flux, this can prove to be an invaluable advantage as it allows organizations to utilize outsourced talent on an as-needed basis, while managing them internally and retaining existing staff.
Benefits Of IT Staff Augmentation
To reiterate, IT staff augmentation allows a company to add staff to their teams based on the additional skills required to support their initiatives, essentially allowing them to ramp up or down to meet changing demand without having to employ full-time staff. This gives organizations more control over their existing staff, while allowing them to utilize IT specialists to fill gaps in their IT ecosystem.
Moreover, by augmenting duties to a few talented individuals, rather than outsourcing the entire IT project or hiring full-time staff, staff augmentation eliminates the cost of both recruiting and employing full-time, in-house employees. It’s a faster model too, because it’s far easier to ‘hire’ quality employees than to search for, filter and recruit new ones.
How Does IT Staff Augmentation Work?
IT Augmentation follows linear process for each of an organization’s time or project-specific staffing needs. This process includes the following steps:
- Our IT Augmentation Management team with work with you to identify your unique IT staffing needs. This will include an assessment of required skills, qualifications, expertise, number of developers, etc., that will be then used as framework for searching and filtering candidates for your augmented team.
- Once we have identified whom to hire, our team will begin the search process, find, interview and assess suitable candidates and have them pass a number of tests to ensure they are qualified for your team.
- After candidates have been vetted and selected, we will do the work of on-boarding these new team members into your workplace. (This includes signing agreements, reviewing workplace policy and setting up payroll).
- Once your augmented team has been integrated, our IT augmentation team will continue to provide support and nurturing, both for augmented team members and their managers. We will also collect feedback from both parties to ensure that needs are consistently being met and to ensure that the partnership is positive.
