Short on Labor?

America is experiencing an unprecedented shortage in labor; especially in the area of Information Technology. At the same time many digital agencies are seeing a sudden increase in demand. What’s the solution? Staff Augmentation.

Staff augmentation is a business strategy that involves hiring additional staff on a temporary or project-by-project basis in order to meet increased demand for a company's products or services. This can be done through the use of temporary or contract workers, or by outsourcing certain tasks or projects to external companies or freelancers.

Staffing augmentation is a flexible and cost-effective way for companies to increase their workforce and meet the demands of their customers, without the long-term commitment and overhead costs associated with hiring permanent employees. It can also be a useful strategy for companies that need to scale up their operations quickly, or that have intermittent or cyclical demand for their products or services.

Outsourcing IT work can potentially offer cost savings in a number of ways.

For example, outsourcing can allow a company to access a larger pool of specialized I.T. talent at a lower cost than if it were to hire and train its own staff. In addition, outsourcing can help a company to reduce its overhead costs, as it does not have to provide benefits or office space for outsourced workers. Finally, outsourcing can allow a company to scale its I.T. operations up or down as needed, which can help to reduce costs by ensuring that the company is not paying for more IT staff than it requires at any given time.
