Key Chapters

  1. Agile Talent: Use Staff Augmentation As Your Secret Weapon

    “Change” is the undisputed theme in today’s business environment, and L&D departments are tasked with quickly developing learning programs. Forward-thinking organizations are embracing the “agile talent” model to rapidly scale.

  2. Outsource Or Augment?

    There are two options on your plate when it comes to using outside talent: you can entrust a full-capability agency or you can get a “jack-of-all-trades” to work on your project. Four questions help you decide.

  3. Do You Really Need A Staffing Partner?

    Why should you use a staff augmentation vendor rather than do the recruiting yourself? Take a look at the end-to-end process of recruitment, from defining the role to onboarding your new hire—as well as the benefits of working with a staff augmentation vendor.

  4. Reap The ROI Of Staff Augmentation

    Do you know of the long list of plusses of engaging a staffing vendor to find and oversee highly skilled temporary consultants? There are time, financial, logistical, cultural, and even psychological benefits to appreciate.

  5. How To Vet Staffing Companies

    When you need true L&D pros, not just any staffing agency will do. Do you know how to read between the lines and find a staffing partner who can assess your L&D needs? You do now. Get the lowdown on the factors that really matter.

Companies are also pouring more money than ever before into L&D: teaching workers leadership and other vital skills needed to compete, training employees to adapt them to a change-management initiative, or simply keeping up with ever-evolving technologies that affect how they work. L&D departments, thus, are under more pressure than ever before to design, develop, and deploy learning programs quickly. As you already know, this means that implementing crucial skills and knowledge into project teams by hiring experienced talent—temporarily, at least—is needed to get the job done. This need for specialized workers is an issue that everyone is facing.

Creating the correct L&D strategy for your business is no child's play. You need to invest time and money for a start. Ensuring that your employees are specialized and skilled, as well as being aligned with the new technologies, can put more pressure on L&D departments.
