Services like staff augmentation are sometimes seen as more expensive than hiring directly.
However, once you consider the direct and indirect costs of a permanent hire (sick leave, holiday leave, superannuation, hardware, training, recruitment fees, redundancy and replacement costs and the hassle and loss of focus it involves) vs staff augmentation, the cost is similar. Don’t take our word for it – contact us and we’ll share a comparison calculator so you can make an informed choice.
The value created by staff augmentation is far higher than the cost as a result of the flexibility, scalability and skills it provides.
No, we provide all of the resources the specialists require. You don’t have to worry about hardware, desk space, perks and benefits or training. Moreover, our specialists have access to our training, development resources and our internal staff.
No. There are no permanent costs, no need for sick leave, holiday leave, superannuation, or payroll tax.
We check your requirements against our bench to see if there’s someone suitable for immediate deployment. If there’s nobody suitable on our bench, we search our database of 20,000+ local candidates (many of them vetted), advertise via targeted ads and job boards, and also reach out proactively to outstanding candidates.
We book interviews and have the first profiles ready for you to assess as soon as possible. Once candidate(s) have been vetted and deemed a good fit by both our team and yours, we start the onboarding process. We have a thorough interview process, made up of the below steps:
– Resume screening
– Phone screening
– Candidate completes a practical test online which is assessed by hands on, tech experts
– Interview- a mix of questions on both cultural and skills fit. After the interview we will meet with you to discuss feedback on the candidate and the interview
– Reference checks – we ask questions enabling a thorough evaluation of the candidates past performance. Not just a box ticking exercise, but an opportunity to dig deeper to understand motivations, culture fit and contribution
Immediately if the skill set you need is on our bench. Meanwhile, if we need to hire for the role it can take one to six weeks. Contact us to check availability.
Yes, provided you’ve engaged the specialist for a minimum of twelve months.
VS hiring contractors, staff augmentation gets you faster access to higher quality talent with less effort.
– Faster access to candidates due to our bench and database of vetted candidates
– Less time and cost involved in recruitment: attracting, screening, interviewing, tech testing and also reference checking candidates
– Higher quality candidates due to our proven recruitment process
– Higher accountability including a replacement guarantee so you’re covered if anything goes wrong. We’ve been delivering successfully for 20 years (and intend on being here for the next 20!)
– Contractors usually have minimal or no notice periods, meaning they can stop work at any time. While our staff augmentation team have a four week notice period
The quality and calibre of 4mation’s people are extremely high. We jointly defined the skills sets needed and cultural fit beforehand, the augmentation staff interacted extremely well with our team and hit the ground running.
