The end of the year is a time traditionally reserved for gathering as family and friends, celebrating togetherness and relationships, and ushering in a new year with excitement and joy. People will remember 2020 as a year of interrupted traditions, adjusted plans, and postponed gatherings, all for the sake of protecting the very loved ones we may not get to see. While tensions have been high and general stress and anxiety a daily concern, how we close out this year is ultimately up to us.
Despite difficulties, in the remaining weeks of the year, we can reflect on our many blessings – supportive friendships socially distanced walks and talks, and valuable technology making it possible to connect with those closest to us via calls and video chats. Most of all, we can be thankful for a light at the end of the tunnel. We have weathered the storm and are emerging stronger than ever.
We must remain hopeful. This will not last forever. If this year has taught us anything, it is that we are both flexible and resilient. We have changed many aspects of our lives to keep ourselves and others healthy. We are vigilant about handwashing and sanitizing, wearing a mask, and maintaining social distancing whether in the workplace or in public. We have proven that we can face an unprecedented challenge head-on and not let it get the better of us.
We close out 2020 proudly, thankful for the acts of bravery and kindness we’ve witnessed. Grateful for our friends and family, we face 2021 with optimism, knowing even in times of difficulty we will persevere.
The current state of the world means new positions are being created and unanticipated needs are being met. As a result, companies have had to rapidly adjust to these changes, including additional or reduced staffing, safety protocols, and new business lines. More organizations are reopening and determining the most effective way to do business in a pandemic.
When looking at your own company, you evaluate your needs and determine the best way for everyone to get back to work, as well as what hiring should look like for your IT positions. With so many areas still uncertain, moving to a contingent staffing approach may be the right choice for you.
Meet your specific IT needs
When evaluating your own IT needs, you recognize the kind of talent needed, yet you’re often required to focus more on generalities for the budget. With a contingent IT staff person, you can find the help you need, so an important project can be completed without having to find room for a new position in the budget.
Control the contract
Since you set the terms, you determine exactly what you want an IT professional to do and the length of time with your organization. This eliminates any uncertainty and prepares your new hire for what to expect. Another benefit is you can offer the option to move from contract to permanent. If you feel their skills and work ethic align with your company’s, they can be hired on a full-time basis.
Offer support faster
A contingent offer increases the speed with which you will get the IT support you need. Vetting a person’s qualifications, experience, and general fit with your organization can take time, but you want to do it right. A contract worker does not carry the same kind of commitment. Plus, IT staffing agencies exist with a bench of talent waiting for you to choose from for your company.
Partner with a firm dedicated to IT staffing
Agencies dedicated to IT can fill your needs faster. By sourcing and vetting candidates, they have the right person waiting when you have a need.
