Organizations have more options now than ever before when it comes to hiring an IT professional. Organizations can either hire a full-time employee, use contract professionals, or simply outsource a part of the project.
However, the task of staffing is easier said than done. Before making any final decisions on staffing choices, organizations should explore the following four key areas which impact the staffing process:
- Cost of a full-time equivalent (FTE) versus a contractor
- Degree of control the organization wants to have on the work process
- Commitment of an employee
- Flexibility in hiring and firing of an employee
