When businesses are looking to add to their teams for specific projects, there are a few different routes they can take. Staff augmentation, outsourcing, and hiring additional staff are all options for groups that need an extra boost to complete challenging projects or manage workloads during periods of high demand. While alternatives have their own merit, staff augmentation is an excellent solution for many teams. Read on to learn more about why you should utilize staff augmentation services from Lewis-Price & Associates, Inc.
1. Save Time on Recruitment Efforts
Recruiting additional staff can be challenging and time-consuming, particularly for highly technical positions in fields like IT and accounting. Not only do you have to find appropriate candidates for your team, but you also need to have your in-house recruiting staff spend time filling those vacancies. When you take advantage of staff augmentation from Lewis-Price, you do not have to wait to find suitable candidates. We do the hard work of recruiting for you, which means that your team can get started with an augmented staff much more quickly.
2. No Need for Additional Corporate Infrastructure
Hiring new employees can sometimes necessitate the addition of management staff to oversee them or carry out the hiring, onboarding, or training processes. This is especially true in instances where your workforce must grow larger than before to meet an increased workload. Because of this, hiring new staff can bring with it even more staffing needs. With staff augmentation, we take care of many of the administrative needs of your contract workers. You will not need to add to your human resources or accounting departments to cope with the increased workload that comes with hiring additional employees.
3. Reduce Costs
Some folks are hesitant to work with a third party to address their staffing needs due to the idea that staffing services will cost an arm and a leg. While a staffing agency will not work for free, there are immense financial benefits to utilizing staff augmentation services from an agency. Because Lewis-Price handles things like employee benefits, hiring, and other administrative tasks related to hiring and managing employees, staff augmentation is a surprisingly cost-effective measure. Working with Lewis-Price to augment your staff can reduce money spent on various overhead costs, often resulting in a much more desirable outcome than hiring more employees.
