What is Staff Augmentation service?

Staff Augmentation is one of the hottest topics in the Singapore job market, evidently in the rise in numbers of organisations engaging in this service. Having to compete in a rapidly changing environment with fluctuating demands, businesses are turning to Staff Augmentation as a critical operation strategy to increase responsiveness and remain competitive.

Staff Augmentation refers to the temporary engagement of suitable candidates to support businesses’ initiatives and needs. Typically, the staff augmentation period is between 1 to 3 years; however, shorter duration is always possible depending on clients’ hiring and staffing needs.


Varying staffing needs

No matter which industry you are in, seasonal demands are inevitable, which would lead to either a temporary spike in staffing or a short-term dip in labour. With Staff Augmentation, companies with staffing requirements in constant flux can meet their needs promptly without incurring additional infrastructure investment.

Specialised Skills

For special projects undertaken by organisations that require out-of-house specialised skills, Staff Augmentation serves as a quick and efficient solution to employ specialised talents for the duration of the project. It also eliminates the additional cost of investing in internal skill development.

Restricted budget

When the budget is running tight, flexible control of resources is crucial to ensure efficient utilisation. With Staff Augmentation, companies are able to closely manage their spending and pay only for the required work.

Building a diverse team

Having a diverse team can provide a melting pot of fresh ideas, improving the creativity of the team, and capacity for innovation. As Staff Augmentation is not bounded by geographical limitations, it provides a seamless process in hiring employees from around the world.
