Why Your Company Should Consider IT Staff Augmentation

We here at Tech Talent South are well aware of how time-consuming and costly the hiring process can be for companies. Creating hiring programs, finding and interviewing the right talent, and training them to be on par with the rest of your staff can be a large part of your budget, and you might not even find the right candidate in the first place. That’s why Tech Talent South provides you with the tech professionals that you need without having to search high and low for them. Here, we’ll look at why your company should consider IT staff augmentation so that you can see how much it could be doing for you and your company.


As we said above, the hiring process costs big bucks. It can be difficult to justify that cost, especially when you work on a project-to-project basis and only need outside help for one project. Even if you do find someone, they might not have the exact skills you need, and they could even decide to leave before they even make an impact. By partnering with Tech Talent South, you have access to all our highly trained professionals who know the stack you need to get the job done. You won’t have to spend extra money trying to find the perfect candidate and getting them up to speed while you have a project that needs to get done.

Time Saved Recruiting

Recruiting creates another hiccup in the process because of how much time it takes. The average corporate job offer gets around 250 resumes, and you’ll be paying for someone to go through every one of them to find the right candidate for the position. That’s just when you have people applying. Before that, you’ll need to show up to recruitment fairs, put up job postings on all the major job websites, and reach out to potential candidates yourself. IT staff augmentation takes this headache away from you. We do the vetting of the people we put into our pipeline, so you don’t have to. All you have to do is approve the final choice and you’re ready to go.


One of the most important traits for a business to have is adaptability. Especially in the tech industry where project requirements are always changing, you need to be able to adapt to whatever falls in your path. IT staff augmentation gives you the opportunity to hire exactly who you need, exactly when you need them. Whether it’s to replace a recently open position or to fill in your team’s gaps in knowledge, Tech Talent South wants to help you be prepared for anything.

Choice of Commitment

Hiring a contractor through our Talent Activation Program is such a good place to start when you need the help. We provide the talent that you need to get your project done, and you get to decide if you want to hire them onto your team or keep them as a contractor. The choice is yours, and both options have their benefits, but keep in mind that the talent we provide is some of the best you’ll find. They are eager to learn and excited to be working for you. Think of their time as a contractor as a trial run. We know that when you see what Tech Talent South’s professionals can do, you’ll have a hard time not bringing them onto your team.

Filling Skill Gaps

As impressive and talented as your internal team might be, chances are that they don’t know everything there is to know in their field. This is normal, but if you need a specific process done a specific way and no one on your team knows how to do it, it’s time to call in for staff augmentation. Our talent has a wide array of skills to choose from when you need it, so you don’t need to waste time and money trying to find someone new just to complete one specific task.

Lower Employee Turnover

Given that it was found that companies with lower turnover rates produce four times higher profits on average, this isn’t something to overlook. Going through the traditional hiring process is no guarantee that you will find an employee who will stick with you. Utilizing staff augmentation is the perfect choice when you want to find candidates who are in the field for the right reasons. Not only do you not have to worry about finding them, but keeping them after the fact is just as simple. You get to see how well they perform, and the candidate gets a chance to show off their enthusiasm for working for your company.

Lower Operational Costs

In addition to the cost savings we talked about earlier, augmenting your IT staff allows you to save even more money by not having to deal with the new talent’s operational costs until you decide to hire them. There’s no need to worry about getting them equipment, finding space for them in your office, reimbursing for travel expenses, or any other cost associated with getting a new employee up and running, as they’ll be prepared to work from the get-go.

Solution for Aggressive Deadlines

If you’ve been in the industry a while, you know how stringent some deadlines end up being. You don’t have time to train someone on a brand-new process when you need to finish your project in a few short weeks. Staff augmentation is ideal in this scenario because it allows you to find the talent that you need in a short time frame, and you don’t need to waste time training them. Tech Talent South provides you with a plethora of choices so you can find the right fit for both your team and your current project.

Hopefully, we’ve opened your eyes a little bit as to why your company should consider IT staff augmentation. Whether you need a hand with a project, are looking for your next employee, or are checking in to our coding boot camp in Raleigh, Tech Talent South is here to help so that you can get back to work stronger as a team and more confident than ever.
