Every business needs specialists, but only some have the resources to hire and maintain a wide workforce in-house. To minimize costs and hiring risks, businesses are turning to the outstaffing model – attracting third-party contractors to solve individual problems and implement projects.

This article will discuss whether your company needs IT staffing in 2023. Let’s get started.

What Is IT Staffing? 

By staffing, a contracting firm provides an expert or group of specialists to help the client with their project for the duration of the contract. Clients control and supervise “rented” teams or specialists while contracting firms handle the selection, legal aspects of collaboration, salary payments, and HR functions.

Among the goals of IT staffing are:

  1. Workflow and budget optimization;
  2. Reducing the strain on HR professionals and accountants;
  3. Risk reduction for the organization in the event of a legal issue.

How does outstaffing in IT work?

The following are the primary procedures of this remote recruitment model:

  1. Selecting applicant profiles, shortlisting profiles based on a screening test, holding a brief technical interview, and submitting a letter of hire/offer are all part of the recruitment process.
  2. Onboarding includes the provision of a workspace, communication channels, familiarity with the product and firm, as well as tracking and monitoring.
  3. The workflow includes talks, tracking project progress, issue solutions, contract fulfillment, and assignment completion.

Trends of IT Staffing in 2023

Staffing is a really global business. American firms often outsource customer service and information technology positions to countries where they can get the same results at a fraction of the cost. Staffing work accounts for a sizable percentage of the economies of several developing countries.

Here are some imposing statistics to prove it:

– According to Deloitte, global outsourcing spending might reach $731 billion in 2023.

– IT outsourcing is used by 92% of G2000 corporations.

37% of small businesses outsource at least one business operation.

What Is an IT Staffing Company?

In terms of IT staffing, the primary goal of a firm that provides this service is to ensure the desired quality and to have the necessary credentials to offer it.

In this situation, recruiting a professional in the area might take on various forms and variants, and IT staffing firms should be prepared for this.

Benefits of IT Staffing

A corporation can get many benefits by hiring IT staffing services directly from an outsourcing company:

– Top-notch talents. Managed service businesses attract and maintain talent more efficiently than conventional enterprises. Why? The reason is that IT workers value freedom considerably more than large wages, and would rather work on a variety of projects over a period of a few months than on one for an extended length of time.

– Close-knit teams start ASAP. If a corporation employs more than one specialist for a project, assembling a team might take some time. It is far superior to having a staffing firm give you a team with vast expertise and completed successful projects.

– Continuous development. To be honest, we all want our projects to proceed at the intended pace and be completed on schedule. But, as humans, we don’t know what will happen to us tomorrow. Conventional recruiting will not give a remedy in this scenario. If your specialist departs or falls unwell for a lengthy period of time, your recruiting procedure will have to be restarted.

Looking for the ways to extend your team? Let's talk

– Delegating hiring risks. You can focus on business development while we look for the best candidate. In addition to incorporating well-established processes, we also ensure that any chances of miscommunication, finding the wrong expert, or missing deadlines are minimized. 

On the other hand, outsourcing firms have a set number of DevOps engineers, Big Data architects, full-stack developers, and others on staff. To put it another way, replacing someone who becomes ill or quits will be considerably easier and faster.

IT Staffing: Yes or No?

So, should you choose to work with an IT staffing company or keep it in-house? From my experience, there is no perfect recipe for all businesses, so the answer is it depends! But why do you have to choose one of the two options? Pick both if your business requires.

Only you know your internal business processes. Weigh the strongest sides of your team and identify the gaps where you need some enforcement.
