Staffing is one of the processes used by companies to fill open roles within the company. Staffing can be used for an open position or project. Short-term, customized roles and projects are core to the staffing model, so these roles are focused on short-term engagement, from a week or month to a few months.

The talent staffing process usually involves the know-how of a specialized staffing agency that works to find, qualify and hire members on behalf of their client.

On the other hand, typical employment is the process of the usual in-house hiring that members of a talent acquisition team partake in. When compared to talent staffing, in-house employment takes longer, is rather expensive, and involves the invisible risk of retention, which is slowly becoming a huge cause of worry.

Typical employment may be a much more suitable choice for long-term projects, involving full-time roles. These jobs may require a person to be more inculcated with company values, client expectations, and cultural aspects which may fuel their passion and care towards the projects.

On the other hand, when a project or position is short-term, like a single event, or temporary, you may not need to go through the time and effort of setting up a formal recruitment process. Instead, depending on your needs and business type, you might find that choosing an IT staffing company might be more suitable for your situation.

What’s even better is that if the person is not a good fit for your team, your staffing agency can find someone else to fill in the role, which may not be the case with typical employment. Similarly, adding and reducing members depending on the scope of the project is another major benefit that staffing offers.

Finally, the question of the hour! Which of the two options should you choose? The answer solely depends on the way your business operates. It’s a good idea to think about the following.

The number one thing to consider when choosing which option works best for you is your long-term budget. If you decide to go with typical employment, you’ll need to decide if there are enough funds in your budget for these types of contracts.

If you’re tight on budget, staffing agencies are the way to go. They forge relationships with professionals and always know someone who might be perfect for the type of skill you’re looking for. This way, your company doesn’t have to find new employees every few months, saving you time and money.
