Specialized Professional Staffing
Our capability to bring in technical and operational capability on a contract basis is substantial. We regularly bring in specialized professionals to undertake specific operational and technical projects with clients on a contract basis. We are able to bring in individuals who have ‘been there and done that’ many times over in specific areas – individuals who are sector specialists and functional specialists. As a result of our operating model we also have the capability to address highly time sensitive needs.
Increasingly, companies are recognizing that the strategic use of specialized contract professionals can be an extremely effective way to supplement internal personnel and carry out focused work with clear objectives.
This trend is expected to accelerate in the coming decade, as companies’ needs for sophisticated expertise, and their desire to remain lean and intensively focused on their core business, rise. Companies want optimum flexibility and are turning more frequently to solutions that provide them scalable, just-in-time expertise. The flexible approach that was pioneered in logistics is being rolled out to areas of human capital that lie beyond companies’ core operations. External specialists are brought in ‘just-in-time’ and paid for practical work with clear results.
Companies do not have sufficient time and resources to efficiently locate the talent they need, rigorously screen it – assess credentials, experience, expertise and integrity – and monitor ongoing progress. Ultimately, they simply do not have the wherewithal to separate the wheat from the chaff.
