Did you know tech workers make up most of America’s 57 million freelancers? Smart companies seek skills like web design, web programming, CSS, HTML, and more from a growing pool of freelancers/contract workers. Companies are intent on filling their talent gap.
Why are companies hiring tech contract workers?
A shortage of full-time skills.
With the Great Resignation (the term coined to describe the record number of employees quitting their jobs since the pandemic began), companies seek technical freelancers to fill their talent gap.
There is massive competition for talent today, and companies realize they do not have that kind of talent or skills within their workforce. When companies do not have hard-to-find skills within their organization, hiring a tech contract worker for a short period makes sense.
Stay ahead of the competition.
Companies have always had to compete for talent from the same full-time employment space they have always relied on, but that’s no longer enough to get things done today. Your competitors have widened their net and are not relying solely on the full-time talent pool — they are also looking at freelance and remote talent through technical staffing companies. If you do not do the same, they (your competitors) will have an advantage over you.
The benefits of hiring Tech contract workers
Access to highly specialized skills.
Hire highly-specialized contract staff through a technical staffing company and access highly specialized professionals for a specific time and a set cost.
No long-term commitment.
Get the skills you need for the time you need them, without any long-term commitment.
Better work from freelancers.
Today, some of the best tech talents prefer short-term projects over long-term employment. They have discovered that this arrangement gives them the work-life balance they crave and allows them to work better.
Avoid employee burnout during spikes in workload.
If you experience seasonal or unexpected spikes in workload, technical recruitment can help you tide over those periods and works excellently. Along with your full-time employees, freelance or contract workers can help you meet your workload head-on.
Avoid problems associated with hiring full-time employees.
That includes lengthy and complex hiring process, high costs, sick leave/leave of absence, and even hiring freezes due to economic downturn, merger/acquisition, or internal reorganization.
