If a permanent hire isn’t in the cards right now, or it is going to take your team time to find the perfect fit, consider bridging the gap with an interim placement.
Set your team up for a strong start to the new year.
When opting for a contract or interim hire makes strategic business sense.
1. Speed is critical
Whether you’re at the end of a budget period and facing a “use it or lose it” requirement or kicking off a major initiative, hiring delays can be costly.
- Relieves pressure so managers can take their time to find the right person
- Keeps teams and timelines on target
2. Fixed period hires make sense
You need talent with a specialized skill or experience set, but only for a fixed period. Not every team member needs to be a permanent hire.
- Technical or specialized expertise at your fingertips.
- Retain specialized talent only for the timeframe their skillset is needed
- Often, cost can come out of project budgets, minimizing overall budget impacts.
3. You’ve maxed out your perm hire count but still need more support
Leaner teams may look less expensive on paper, but they could cost your business in the long run with burnout and reduced productivity.
- Reduce burnout.
- Add support without adding headcount to your payroll.
- The spend on extra talent is eliminated immediately upon project completion.
