IT staffing is about finding that right combination of skills and personality.
Duluth, GA (Vocus) September 29, 2009
Thanks to companies like Guidance Consulting, Inc., today's top IT professionals can be accessed from around the United States and the entire global community. One of the primary benefits of IT staffing firms is their access to recruits around the world. Less than ten years ago, the best IT professionals were found only in key markets: metropolitan areas like Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Washington, DC. Big cities and smaller communities with direct ties to the latest in technology were the only ones able to draw from a pool of applicants as talented as they were diverse.
Guidance Consulting has made it a primary goal to match employers with the top IT professionals in their field. As part of this goal, senior consultant Ronald Gottilla has looked beyond regional workers to include a workforce of that can either telecommute or temporarily relocate as part of a staffing plan.
"As the IT field grows more specialized, it can be difficult for companies to find regional candidates who have all the right training," says Gottilla. "By tapping into a larger workforce, we're able to match employers with not just a good fit, but the best fit."
Finding that fit is often what makes IT staffing such a complex field - and one that companies like Guidance Consulting better poised to assist. That's because more and more companies are looking for employees who have not only the right skills, but also who fit into their company's culture. "No matter how much we might like to think that an impressive resume is enough, the truth is that people are unique individuals," asserts Gottilla. "IT staffing is about finding that right combination of skills and personality."
By searching for candidates outside the immediate area, companies like Guidance Consulting are also able to offer options in telecommuting, which can save tens of thousands of dollars each year. "In IT, it often just takes Internet access to get the job done. By working off-site, temporary and specialty employees can get the work done in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost," adds Gottilla.
With an economy forcing companies around the world to feel the pinch of recession, this is the kind of news that can keep many businesses on their feet.
