Companies working in IT sector look for fresh talent and for lack of infrastructural support cannot afford to recruit them opt for IT staffing solution offered by third party companies. Similarly, many IT companies do not wish to be involved in recruitment and concentrate on their core business; such companies outsource their recruitment process to third party recruitment company which in lieu of fees provide IT staffing services to such companies. Moreover, IT staffing service being a specialized area and only those who have been offering such a service and have infrastructure only can afford it. Talented IT recruiters is fundamental for IT staffing companies.
Some IT companies in fact outsource some of their projects to IT staffing companies wherein such staff works for certain period of time on behalf of the company and after the completion of the project leave the company. Depending upon the investment, IT staffing companies charge for such services. One attractive feature of IT staffing service is that whereas the project team manages the implementation, the IT staff is involved as subject matter expert. The two party method helps in full implementation. IT staffing is built on three sets of relationships, which can be summarized in the following manner – those with candidates, those with hiring managers, and those with senior management.
Companies outsource IT staffing services to major recruitment agencies so that they can use the expertise enjoyed by the recruitment firm. Additionally, outsourcing of IT staff recruitment to third party agency helps companies in terms of expenditure incurred in the process, resources invested, etc. Similarly, if some work is outsourced to IT staffing company which in fact cannot be a full time rather a part time and requires less number of days, it would be completely in the interest of company. In IT staffing companies can save on money as they pay only on the basis of hours spent and not on the monthly basis.
Similarly, some companies tend to invest their whole resources and efforts on core business and for that such companies cannot live with the notion that they should recruit IT staff on their own as it would require a whole set of prioritization. Such companies go for IT staffing services offered by third party companies and make a deal for certain amount and time. The IT staffing company either places its own IT staff for the service of such client or recruits IT staff for such client. Major thrust of outsourcing of IT staffing to third party is to use the best available option in the market and leverage on it.
