Did you know that it costs on average $4700 to hire a full-time employee? And, it can take up to 36-42 days to fill an average position in the United States. Furthermore, it takes about 12 weeks for a new hire to become fully productive at work.
Along with these grim numbers, consider another fact—about 40% of new employees quit within six months. That’s roughly about the time an organization needs to make up the money it spent on a new hire.
Do you have the time, money, and resources to realize this plan? No one does!
Today, every growing organization’s business continuity plan includes staffing solutions to address this pain point. Business success depends on an agile workforce. Finding skilled professionals can be the most effective way to fill talent gaps, and continue to deliver learning projects across the organization.
Staff augmentation and outsourcing have proven beneficial during this period of hiring freezes, slashed budgets, and quiet quitting. Many industries have embraced talent outsourcing since the early 90s, but the two concepts have really gained momentum in the last decade. With volatile economies and a greater emphasis on ROI, it’s safe to assume that staff augmentation and outsourcing are here to stay.
