If you’re struggling to find full-time employees for your technology business, the answer may be easier than you think! The hiring process for temporary employees is faster, more efficient and often leads to a direct hire at the end of the contract. So, the answer to the current hiring issue could be as simple as expanding your options to include hiring tech experts on a temporary basis! In 2020, the freelance workforce statistics reported 12% of the United States workforce joined the freelance bandwagon. With 42% of small businesses employing freelancers, it seems a logical option.
At Raso Solutions, we are successfully helping hire for several ServiceNow Elite Partners on a temp basis as well as direct hire. Recently, we’ve combatted the shortage of tech employees by leaning on the temp employees within our pipeline. This has had several benefits: faster turnaround, reduction in overhead, workplace flexibility, and the opportunity to work with more experienced professionals.
Benefits of Hiring Temp or Temp-to-Hire Employees
Fast and Efficient
When it comes to the technology industry, timing is everything. Whether you’re trying to implement a new platform for streamlining all business processes or you’re working on a technology breakthrough, time is of the essence. If you only consider hiring a full-time employee, there will be an inevitable delay. The median time to hire in technology pre-pandemic was 45 days. Add on the two-week notice, and you are looking at two months before your new employee can start training for your project. How much do two months cost your company?
When working with a temp employee, they will be able to start almost immediately! As contracted workers, they don’t need the full training on company culture and rules – they already have experience going from project to project – so you’ll be saving on the costs of having to wait for the new hire to join your team.
Reduce Overhead Costs
A significant benefit of hiring a temp employee is the savings in overhead costs! Working with a temp employee means you no longer have to pay for payroll taxes (federal income tax, social security, Medicare taxes, and federal unemployment), employee benefits, and worker’s compensation insurance. According to Forbes, all together, these expenses can quickly increase your payroll costs by 20% to 30% or more.
Raso Solutions offers the full range of staffing solutions for technology employees: temp, temp-to-hire, direct-hire, offshore, and onshore. In other words, when you need the ideal employee to fit your company, your project, AND your budget, we can help you.
Hiring temp employees enables the flexibility to keep staffing levels optimal as your business needs change. Whether you need a temp worker for a few months or a one-off project, they work based on what you need! Once the contract is complete, you can decide whether or not you would like to continue to work with them.
When you bring fresh talent into a team, motivation soars. New ideas and new ways to come at a project tend to enhance the project itself. In our experience, each time we place a temporary employee, they feel pressure to showcase their skills and our clients benefit. The efficiencies recognized by hiring a temporary employee are a huge benefit when comparing temp employees to seasoned employees. And the feeling is infectious. Our temp employees tend to add an element of speed to projects improving deadline reach substantially.
Work with Experienced Professionals
According to Upwork’s freelance performance statistics, around 50% of freelancers are highly skilled. In fact, And.Co reported 95% of freelancers take jobs that require them to improve on their skill set. Our own temp employees are tested and vetted. Many of them enjoy the experience of working on new projects and bringing their skillsets to different companies as opposed to working within the same team day after day.
We have outstanding relationships with all tech experts in our pipeline. We are considered one of the best tech firms to work for, and that reputation has allowed us to continue working with experts in all major platforms: ServiceNow, Salesforce, Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, and more.
