For many people, the holiday season is filled with stress and joy as shopping and family gatherings take center stage. From a professional standpoint, there is also the pressure of ending the year on a high note, making quotas and evaluating projects that are scheduled to end when the new year begins.
However, there is another aspect to the season that businesses should take advantage of — staffing.
As readers of this blog are aware, there are many challenges to identifying and recruiting the top tier talent that can manage the latest innovations within the IT channel. As a recent CIO article points out, the end of the year could be the perfect time for companies to start recruiting.
In many instances, the beginning of the year consists of planning for the next 12 months. Once a plan is in place, the hiring process begins. However, with the on-boarding process, this can put a business weeks into the new year before a project starts moving forward. By starting the hiring process now, companies get a jump start on the year as well as the competition.
On top of that, with less organizations seeking talent, it can be easier for businesses to zero in on quality professionals – even if they may not be actively looking for a change of scenery.
This can also be a smart course of action for VARs and MSPs that will be inundated with new business as companies seek partners to help with technology solutions. Solution providers that use VAR Staffing can jump ahead of the competition and find impactful talent.
