Endurance IT Services Delivers IT Staffing and Recruiting Knowledge to Hampton Roads Businesses
January 17, 2023 |

The world’s biggest and most successful brands habitually work with staffing companies to fill various roles, but not for the reasons you might think. Companies like Google, Apple, American Express, and Microsoft rely on this solution to fill their IT staffing needs, and Endurance IT Services is hosting a Lunch & Learn on February 9th to share the details of this solution with local Hampton Roads businesses.

While there are obvious cost advantages to having on-demand help on a contractual or hourly basis, that’s not the only (or even the primary) motivator for these business leaders. 

The key driver for companies like Google and Apple is profit - but not the profit that comes from cutting costs. Instead, smart businesses have discovered that by relying on specialist companies to provide dedicated onsite or offsite personnel to outsource services, they can focus on core competencies while letting another party handle activities (and even whole departments) that are important but not in a company’s zone of genius.

In this article, we’ll dive into the benefits of exploring an IT staffing strategy and an important caveat to be aware of before you implement this strategy.

How IT Staffing Services Affect Your Budget

There’s no question that employees are expensive, and it’s not just the full-time salaries you have to consider. There are also benefits packages, training costs, insurance, and other hidden expenses. 

Perhaps one of the most daunting factors for employers is bringing on a new hire that’s not a good fit. A “bad” hire can cost a company a fortune, and even expose your business to liability.

With IT staffing services, you are in control of how much you spend and how you spend it. You can bring someone onto your team temporarily for a concrete task, or have a contractor on the clock only during hours when you need help. 

If you’re a growing company contemplating adding staff, you don’t have to commit to a full-time employee. Instead, you can decide how many hours you want to pay for, and a staffing company will accommodate your request. 

 

How Companies Use IT Staffing and Recruiting to Optimize Their Business

Recent research from IBM found that 73% of companies that outsource roles and functions for areas like IT are motivated by innovation and growth. On the other hand, only 27% of companies pointed to cost savings, efficiency, and expertise as the reason to outsource staffing and recruiting.

While it seems logical that smaller businesses would be the primary users of IT staffing services, it turns out that businesses with more than 50 employees are more than twice as likely to turn to outside resources for staffing help. 

According to Clutch.co, this hesitancy among small businesses could be due to concerns about in-house culture shifts, differing expectations, and confidentiality.

By working with a reputable staffing firm, you’ll have a support team that can match staff to your existing culture, manage expectations, and ensures confidentiality. Endurance IT Services has been successfully staffing Hampton Roads businesses for more than 15 years, and our recruiting team is second-to-none. 

Summing Up: The Advantages of Implementing an IT Staffing Strategy

Outsourcing staffing is not always the right solution for every company, so it’s worth considering what fits your organizational needs as well as your goals.

The caveat we mentioned earlier is that you must work with an experienced and reputable company with a relentless drive for client satisfaction. Without that, you could be at risk for placements that aren’t a good fit and that cost more money in the longrun. 

When IT staffing is done in alignment with a strategy that includes innovation and growth, the advantages are enormous, including:

  • Access to a larger talent and more diverse talent pool 
  • Availability of subject matter experts
  • Ability to hire and scale quickly
  • Focus on core management activities
  • Reduce expenses of hiring, training, and managing people
  • Get consultative expertise and additional support
  • Fulfill compliance requirements
  • No long-term commitments and enjoy flexible terms (avoid being stuck with bad hires)
  • Ability to grow faster with more affordable staffing
