Managing talent in an uncertain world
In a fast-changing environment it pays to stay flexible. That’s true of both companies and individuals. Long-term permanent employment is no longer always the best way to put highly skilled and experienced people together with the organizations that need them.
But staffing for non-permanent managerial and specialist positions presents a host of challenges, from sourcing candidates to managing staff for the duration of their employment term.
That’s where en world Contract Professionals can help.
We specialize in providing contract and fixed-term staffing for the highest levels of skilled and bilingual talent – talent unavailable at temp agencies. We empower organizations with a new degree of flexibility, free from headcount constraints and costly long-term commitments. We can make the difference that means success.
When to consider contract staffing
Not every staffing solution requires an increase in head count. Professional contract staffing can be your most cost-effective solution especially for fixed-term projects, temporary and interim replacements, and urgent staffing requirements.
Circumstances where non-permanent staffing offers particular advantages:
Sudden departures or job openings
Covering temporary or childcare leave
Projects requiring specific language ability or advanced technical skills
Full-time hiring gaps
Full-time candidate unavailable or assessment desired before hiring full-time
Staffing needs exceed budgeted resources
Ad-hoc and special projects such as system implementation or organizational reform projects
