With the rise of hybrid working, where colleagues are based is declining in importance. When it comes to resourcing a business, organisations should now think about the possibility of utilising the global talent pool available. And given that short-term labour requirements can be expensive in parts of the world, offshore staff augmentation offers a smarter way of meeting demand.
What is staff augmentation?
Staff augmentation refers to the process of using outsourced workers to supplement your existing team – typically over a short term or as demand requires. There are several benefits of this approach:
1. Increased flexibility
When your business is growing rapidly, it can be difficult to find enough qualified workers to keep up with demand. Staff augmentation gives you the flexibility to scale up or down quickly as needed. You can add more workers when demand increases, and reduce staff when demand decreases. This flexibility helps you stay agile and responsive to changes in the market.
2. Cost benefits of staff augmentation
Staff augmentation can be a cost-effective way to get the workforce you need without having to hire full-time employees. When you outsource workers through staff augmentation, you only pay for the hours they work, which can save in the long run. Offshore staff can also offer a level of expertise that would cost far more in some regional markets. So it can prove far cheaper to use this service rather than utilise temporary contracts for example. Plus don’t forget, you can also service more business with an augmented workforce, driving more revenue as a result.
3. Access to highly skilled workers
Staff augmentation allows you to access the best talent in the industry – across the world. These outsourced workers are highly skilled and experienced, which enables your business to get a high-quality workforce without having to hire full-time employees (or bear the associated recruitment costs).
4. Scalability of processes
Staff augmentation allows businesses to scale up their workforce during peak seasons or workloads while maintaining costs through outsourcing. This allows businesses to focus on their core competencies and only expand to areas where they really need resource permanently.
5. Improved quality of work
A business can get high-quality, accurate work through staff augmentation because the outsourced workers’ primary purpose is to ensure that your company gets what it needs. This allows businesses to concentrate on their primary goals while still getting the help they require when it comes to projects and workloads that fall outside their area of expertise. External workers also bring with them the experience of working across many (often highly successful) businesses. As such they understand the best ways of working to get results, which can potentially improve your own internal processes.
