Role of ‘Effective’ IT Staffing and Recruitment in organizations

Written by

Businesses are changing at a breath-neck speed and one factor that has impacted this change is the advent of technological advancements & innovations that are affecting every department of an organization. Whether it is business development, project planning, recruitment, learning & development (L&D), or any other department; technology is effective in changing the dynamics of the game.

A business might be into manufacturing or any other sector that is not related to information technology but they have to look at technology to optimize their operations for reducing expenses & eventually optimizing profits. Banking & Financial Services (BFSI), Consumer & Retail, IT, Telecom, ITES, and Manufacturing & Healthcare are some of the sectors where IT and emerging technologies like AI/ML are playing a big role in optimizing the organization.

It is important to have resources that are well versed with IT (Information Technology) so that they can leverage technology to transform the business as well as the workplace. The decision has to be made in a calculative manner by factoring all the data points like risks, expenses, flexibility, etc. so that a pragmatic decision can be made about IT Staffing within the organization.

Businesses, including large-scale enterprises, are looking at innovative ways to achieve the goal of recruiting and retaining quality talent within the organization. To stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing business environment, organizations prefer to stay agile and one way of achieving this goal is by looking at strategic staffing initiatives that can benefit the business. Depending on the project and organization needs, the HR team along with the management team decides whether the resource should be hired on a contract basis or permanent payroll of the company.

No organization wants to have employees on the bench since it is an added expense to the company, that too without getting any output/results. This is where companies like ManpowerGroup can add value to the IT staffing and IT recruitment exercise as their team can come up with cost-effective, scalable solutions and flexible delivery models that are tailored to the client’s specific objectives and organizational style. They have numerous years of experience working with large-scale enterprises and fulfilling their goals related to IT recruitment. Their team works along with the key stakeholders of the organization to come up with effective staffing models that can benefit them in the long run.

Contract staffing is another trend that is gaining momentum as specialists get an opportunity to work on projects that suit their skills. The other paradigm to contract staffing is that organizations can engage contract staffers for IT activities that are not value-driven for the organization. For example, many IT organizations recruit contract IT employees who work on activities related to software testing, software release management, etc.

We are at the cusp of true digital transformation. With the advancements in cloud computing, organizations are looking at different models where they can leverage the advantages of the cloud for driving more value to the company. Whether the company should use a public cloud/private cloud/mix of public & private cloud depends on the business that the company operates in. IT transformation requires immense expertise about technology and operational models that suits the business.

IT transformation can become seamless with a partner like ManpowerGroup that has immense expertise in the Managed Services domain. Their expertise is concentrated on addressing IT infrastructure, application and security IT operations requirements in an integrated or a stand-alone mode.

To conclude, businesses have to factor the impact of Information Technology (IT) on their growth & bottom-line else they have to be ready to get disrupted by their competition!
