Rather than settling for a less-than-perfect hire or letting a position go unfilled, today’s forward-thinking companies are choosing a new option: contract talent.

Lucas Group announced the publication of the executive recruiting firm’s newest white paper about information technology recruiting, “Contract Staffing: The New IT Recruitment Model.”

Authored by Houston-based General Manager Steven Robinson, the paper addresses the fundamental challenge facing today’s companies: the high demand and low supply of IT talent.

IT unemployment rates are at historic lows across the United States. This has two major implications for traditional IT recruitment models: job boards are yielding fewer qualified applicants and companies are struggling to actively recruit talent away from their current employers.

“Rather than settling for a less-than-perfect hire or letting a position go unfilled, today’s forward-thinking companies are choosing a new option: contract talent,” says Steven Robinson. “Contract talent solves immediate staffing issues while providing sought-after flexibility for both companies and candidates. Companies gain access to high-level skills that are otherwise unavailable, mitigate risk exposure, and deftly manage uncertainty– three essentials to maintaining a competitive edge in today’s rapidly changing marketplace.“

The white paper outlines the benefits of a contract-based staffing model and provides a roadmap for companies to make a seamless shift in their recruitment strategy.

“Technology evolves at a rapid pace that’s much faster than most areas of business, creating a gap between institutional knowledge and market demands,” says Robinson. “In the new digital economy, access to information is a key competitive differentiator. Securing this information from cyber threats while maintaining a competitive edge is a contemporary business imperative. Contract staffing makes this possible.”

“The IT talent marketplace is going through a major transition period,” said Lucas Group CEO Andi Jennings. “Successful companies are those who understand this talent recruitment evolution and are prepared to adopt innovative staffing models that benefit all stakeholders. Steven’s white paper is an essential read for hiring managers seeking a competitive edge.”
