What is Staff Augmentation?
Staff augmentation is a strategy that businesses employ to fill critical skill gaps within their teams. It involves hiring highly specialized staff on a contract basis from an external company, who then work as part of the internal team on a project or a specific role for a predetermined period of time. In this model, a company is able to keep its core full-time staff small while gaining access to expert resources as needed.In simpler terms, staff augmentation means ‘boosting’ your current staff with additional, external professionals who have specific skill sets or expertise that your project requires.
The Advantages of Staff Augmentation
- Flexibility and Agility: With staffing augmentation, businesses can quickly adapt to workload fluctuations, project requirements and tight deadlines.
- Cost-Effectiveness: Staff augmentation model allows companies to minimize costs associated with hiring, training, and maintaining full-time staff, especially when the need for a particular skillset is temporary.
