Engaging ICT professionals on contract basis is a challenging task best-handled by a specialist recruitment and HR administration services partner.
Contract professionals are valuable resources, and all the more so when HR bandwidth and high labour mobility are ongoing challenges for many enterprises. Inherent to the fact that contract hiring is on a specific, highly functional and need-to basis, the contracting practice is a necessary and viable means to deliver value for ICT organisations. Enterprises do well to review their mid-to-long term human capital investment objectives and organisational performance in terms of work allocation cost effectiveness, and to determine if the value of work for each role is aligned to the returns intended from direct personnel investment.
There are varied approaches and situations to leverage on the use of contract workforce. For some clients, the additional manpower is contracted to deliver a transformation project. For others, it is to support business-as-usual requirements while the ICT organisation’s core team focuses on the transformation project and especially during critical implementation stages. And in some cases, contracting is a basis for clients to assess the full potential of a professional before hiring directly.
