4 Hacks for Team Enhancement Through Staff Augmentation

Staff Augmentation helped hire this young man as part of the IT department.

Nearshore staff augmentation is a novel approach to staffing that allows companies to build world-class teams. It helps companies build new teams without actively recruiting new employees. Simply put, staff augmentation is a cost-effective way to expand your in-house staff without the usual financial burden or recruitment hassle. Unlike the standard approach to recruitment, this option allows you to scale your staff while incurring zero infrastructure investment. There’s no call to expand your office space, and it won’t bog down your HR with additional administrative tasks.

Staff augmentation has one simple goal: to let you get the job done. With staff augmentation, you get to onboard a team of highly skilled experts, customized to your liking – skills, expertise, experience, and more. In fact, it’s the equivalent of getting a small army of trained engineers overnight – well within a week or two. No more painstaking wait. Or wading through a mountain of subpar applicants. Or jumping through the usual recruitment hurdles. You simply cut to the chase and build a stellar team, then hit the ground running.

Nearshore staff augmentation services have an international focus. The greater reach means they draw from an immense pool of qualified candidates. Each candidate is carefully vetted to ensure they’re suitable for the role. Given the size of the pool, staff augmentation services only work with the crème de la crème of a global workforce.

Nearshore Staff Augmentation Approach

Staff augmentation is an increasingly popular way for companies to fill their IT needs in a competitive job market. It entails recruiting outside personnel to temporarily bolster your capacity to power through a new project or handle a seasonal spike. Augmentation is also the perfect solution for companies grappling with talent shortage or keen to maintain a lean in-house staff in the face of growing demand.

You can also opt for staff augmentation if you wish to quickly launch a series of new projects and capitalize on a narrow window of opportunity. Since the outside personnel is highly skilled and vetted, they’ll quickly swing into action following a short orientation. It’s the perfect way to gain a decided edge in a highly competitive market.

At ParrallelStaff, we understand the limitations of conventional recruitment and have refined staff augmentation to an art form. Our seamless processes enable us to provide you with a skilled and talented IT specialist in record time. Indeed, our team of experts is ready to augment your team, enhance your IT projects, or start one from scratch. In a manner of speaking, we’ll supply you with a team that’s locked and loaded and ready to go. We aim to help you achieve your business goals quickly by ramping up your productivity.

Is Staff Augmentation Right for You?

Staff augmentation lets you grow your team without the hassle of onboarding new hires and the associated costs. It’s an innovative solution to a dynamic and fast-paced business environment with rapidly closing windows of opportunity. Best of all, staff augmentation is a flexible solution that lends itself to the needs of a diverse range of companies and projects.

Virtually any company can benefit from the ability to grow its production team and ramp up productivity without recruiting more in-house employees.

You’re an ideal candidate for IT staff augmentation if:

  • Your in-house team is working full steam ahead on a project but could use additional help to ensure its timely completion and time to market. But you can’t ramp up capacity since qualified candidates are hard to find due to a scarcity in the local job market.
  • The nature of the project doesn’t warrant onboarding freelancers. It’s more prudent to work closely with the outsourced team following your set standard operating procedures.
  • You wish to issue specific directions to the remote team and apply your in-house managerial protocols. Unlike other types of outsourcing, staff augmentation grants direct access to the people working on each project.
  • You wish to lower your production costs by working with the remote team that could potentially become part of your IT team.

We’ve drilled down our onboarding process into four simple steps to help you get started.

  1. Scoping your talent needs: A dedicated team will sit with you to explore the scope of your projects and talent needs. The goal is to identify the type and number of resources you need and their qualifications. You can be as exacting with your qualifications – language, skills, experience, projects, etc. – as you deem necessary. Explicit specifications accelerate the process of identifying the most qualified candidates for the role.
  2. On-site screening. Once we have your specs, we embark on screening the candidates for your new team. We interview potential candidates and take them through a rigorous process to ensure they’re the right fit for your needs. Our interviewing process is intense and is designed to deliver a perfect candidate match. Providing candidates who meet your expectation is a top priority because we’re committed to your success.
  3. Onboarding. Once we’ve assembled your team, ParallelStaff project managers embark on training and orientation. Our staff handles the onboarding on the D-day to ensure all candidates are up to speed about the project’s specs plus your expectations. We are on hand to help integrate the new team and provide them with the necessary resources.
  4. Integration. ParallelStaff assigns dedicated project managers to each nearshore staff augmentation team. We will nurture and support your remote team through the life of each project. Our goal is to cultivate partnerships with each client while providing valuable resources to achieve their goals. Ongoing support minimizes friction and ensures steady progress so you can hit every milestone, often with time to spare.
