In the IT and technology space, contract staffing is very popular as a form of employment arrangement. Many companies employ long-term and sometimes short-term contract staff to undertake a variety of IT projects and assignments. In the same token, many IT professionals also prefer contract staffing employment as it gives them the exposure of working with different companies on a variety of IT projects and assignments.
IT contract staffing refers to the hiring of IT professionals on a contract basis, usually over a specified period of time. Many of the IT and software development projects are carried out in phases, usually over a 6-month to 2-year project cycles. These projects require professionals who are well-trained with the requisite experience and they are generally expected to “hit the road and run”. This means that they must have the skill-sets and experience in order to take on the contract assignment. Because of this, companies may offer higher salaries and compensation package to buy their talents and skills over the contract period.
There is a wide range of scenarios and benefits in which companies leverage on IT Contract Staffing.
The dynamic nature of the IT industry and its peaks and troughs contribute to the complexities of IT businesses. The need to review hundreds of applications and rounds of interviews can be a time-consuming process. On the other hand, hiring IT contract staff with the help of consultants who are experts in this industry will significantly shorten the hiring processes and time which will result in faster staff deployment rate and turnaround time to meet internal timelines.
Under the Headcount Modelling structure, organisations usually have a headcount limit to adhere to, even when the department is in need of extra hands and full-time employees are fully-loaded. With IT Contract Staffing, companies are able to hire additional IT contract staff without having to worry about meeting the approved headcount. In addition to local Singaporean and Singapore PR contract talents, the foreign IT contract staff can be hired under the employment pass, S-pass, or work permit arrangement.
In the IT business world, technology is ever-changing. The invention of new technical tools or platforms could lead to rapid growth which the company might not be prepared to meet the capacity. During times of unexpected and high growth, organisations will leverage on IT Contract Staffing to fill immediate capacity gaps.
IT involves a lot of complicated assignments and operations that require IT talents who are good at what they are doing. With IT Contract Staffing, it allows companies to gain access to the additional brainpower and IT expertise they need to get the job done, and also the flexibility to scale back once it has been completed.
