When you need to fill important IT positions in your organization, Contract-to-Hire staffing is a surefire way to streamline the entire process, saving you time and money, in addition to getting your projects on the way to completion sooner. If you’re facing the challenge of acquiring the right IT talent, having a Contract-to-Hire staffing partner can help. For more benefits of the Contract-to-Hire process, read on.
Right now, the average unemployment rate for technical IT positions, such as engineers, architects, DBAs, and developers, is around 3.9%. Trying to find the right candidate for your position from such a small applicant pool can be quite difficult, and your hiring managers don’t have the time or resources to spend a long time on the hiring process. With Contract-to-Hire staffing, you can reduce the time it takes to find a candidate by hiring one on a contracted, temporary basis, usually for a run of 90 days.
During the contract period, you’ll have the time to thoroughly vet your candidate, making sure their skills truly fit the position and that they work well with the rest of your team. At the end of the 90 days, you’re then free to convert the contract position into a permanent one or not. This way, you can fill your position quickly, getting your projects into production faster, and save on the expenses of a direct hire—until you know for sure your candidate is the right fit.
What makes Contract-to-Hire even better is having an IT staffing partner who can do all the initial recruitment for you. PC Connection’s Contract-to-Hire Staffing Services will work with you to nail down what your position requires and then find the best possible candidates. All you have to do after that is choose one, which saves you a lot of time and resources.
