Contingent Workforce

Contingent workforce staffing is an increasingly popular solution for companies looking to scale quickly and efficiently without long-term commitments. A contingent workforce consists of independent contractors, or other temporary workers who are hired on a project-by-project basis to manage specialized tasks. This scaleable solution could be a single hard-to find-specialist or a large scale ramp up for a seasonal surge or new project. 

The team at Wide Effect will undertake an extensive discovery process to assess needs, requirements, current / future initiatives and pain points to develop a bespoke program to augment your mandates. Part of our process is understanding your culture and embedding our function within it so that we can deliver the appropriate fit for your organization. 

By using contingent workers, particularly in Commercial, Industrial Marine and Oil and Construction as well specialized / cutting edge industries like Renewable Energy, companies are able to access highly skilled professionals with the right skill set, experience level, and expertise that they need faster and more cost effectively than if they had hired a full-time employee. Additionally, contingent workforce staffing allows organizations to remain agile and responsive to changing market conditions while quickly filling positions in high-demand areas.

Benefits of Contingent Workforce Staffing

The benefits of engaging in contingent workforce staffing include but are not limited to: 

Increased Flexibility: Companies can quickly scale up their workforce by adding additional contingent staff as needed and scale back when workloads decrease. This enables them to respond quickly to changing market conditions or seasonal trends without making long-term commitments.

Cost Savings: Hiring / Onboarding contingent staff eliminates the need for significant costs associated with onboarding, such as benefits packages or equipment purchase. As a result, this approach can result in significant cost savings over time compared to hiring permanent employees for each project or task.

Access to Expertise: Companies are able to access highly skilled professionals with specialized skillsets that may not otherwise be available due to location constraints or budget restraints. By leveraging these individuals’ unique knowledge and expertise becomes possible without having them on staff full time.

Risk Management: Reduction in Worker's Compensation exposure. 

Scaling: Ramp up quickly and accurately within budgetary parameters. 

Overall, implementing contingency staffing solutions can provide organizations with the flexibility they need when resources become stretched thin or specialized skillsets are needed on short notice—without sacrificing quality of work or increasing overhead costs.
