Staff Augmentation

Staff Augmentation is a term coined to describe the process of hiring talent to acquire specialised skill to satisfy the requirements of company projects on a short-term basis. Such a procedure is usually carried out through an employment agency which maintains a network of talent which is assessed and analysed in order to match the specific requests of their client companies.

Talent Management

In today’s digital age, the need for particular expertise in areas of Tech has given further rise to the sphere of staff augmentation, resulting in an on-demand approach towards the acquisition of top talent.

With evolving technologies of A.I. and Blockchain becoming increasingly implemented in company operations, organisations looking to leverage themselves through digital transformation seek a variety of skilled professionals across fields of Tech to carry out specific jobs on a time-sensitive basis. Staff augmentation provides a company with increased flexibility when it comes to managing their talent. If a new project emerges and the company’s current workforce does not possess the required skillset to satisfy the job criteria, staff augmentation offers the possibility to acquire the people with the right skills and experience to take on the job.

An effective solution to the skills gap, staff augmentation allows a company to secure top talent in a cost-efficient and productive manner, achieving greater workplace diversity and making new connections. Moreover, this practice permits a company to assess those professionals they are outsourcing, possibly shortlisting them as potential full-time recruits down the line.

Companies should keep in touch with employment agencies, updating them on their current and upcoming staffing needs in order to provide better foresight into top talent solutions.

Gig-Economy Boom

With the rise of the gig-economy, working culture has seen a shift towards remote-working which is becoming more of a necessity rather than a benefit, particularly with the Millennial workforce which makes up most of the gig-working population. Thus, as working cultures continue to develop in the digital age, remote working options are giving greater rise to freelancers who in turn provide further talent influx to companies seeking specialised skill.

In order to effectively implement digital strategies, companies must first identify their objectives to then pin-point the skills needed to achieve them, which would then ultimately guide them to the right talent to bring on board. Hence, staff augmentation becomes the ideal solution, with an employment agency becoming the bridge connecting companies to gig workers.

Therefore, as the number of quality, freelance talent continues to rise on the job market, it has become prime time for companies to embrace the gig economy and adopt staff augmentation as a viable solution to their skills gap.
