Swimming with the sharks…

If you’re a small business like us, you understand the level of competition in the Information Technology environment.  Don’t be fooled by recruiting firms boasting target area candidates.  Recruiting and marketing firms are a dime a dozen. A recent study released by American Staffing Association (ASA) states: “The turnover rate for temporary and contract employment was 386% in 2017.”

Most recruiting and marketing firms are not required to hire professional recruiters with an understanding in IT and human resource management; therefore, many of your contract employment candidates will be the least skilled in Technical Writing and will require more ramp-up time than an experienced professional with some development, writing and communication skill sets.

In 2019, reducing overhead costs using skilled labor has never been more important. Bureau of labor statistics state: “In April, 1.4 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force. These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. Among the marginally attached, there were 454,000 discouraged workers i.e., persons looking for work which were strongly made to believe no jobs were available for them. “

Recent state and government shutdowns have also caused unnecessary delays and cuts in business budgets, less is not more when seeking contract labor; the more contractor skill sets, the more work you get done.
