When economic conditions are fluctuating wildly, a company has to strike a balance between avoiding overstaffing and avoiding understaffing. Hire too many staff, and they won’t have anything to do. Hire too few staff, and they’ll burn out.
Factorial HR published an article that provided some solutions to understaffing, one of which was to bring in contractors. Not just any contractors, though; contractors who are specialists.
Yet, unlike a temp agency, these workers have unique, specialist skills, that could be extremely useful to your business.
Factorial HR assumed that you’d have to go to an agency (a specialist sub-contracting agency) to find these specialists.
Incidentally, one benefit of bringing in a specialist for a particular project is that the specialist can concentrate on that project alone, and not get bogged down in other things.
