Millburn, NJ, September 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Cast your mind back a couple of years. What do you see?
Businesses emerging from the gloom of the 2008 crash were realising something very important: that things weren’t going to go back to the way they were before; that everything is very different now.
For some, the next step was to look outwards, to the radically re-shaped markets and supplier landscapes. For others, it entailed first looking inwards, at their business models and operations, their staffing and skill levels.
In both cases, survival has meant learning to work in a new way – getting smarter, yes, but nimbler and more reactive; keeping only a tight core team and outsourcing everything else.
Welcome to the Interim Age.
Today, more and more companies throughout the world are seeing the value of access to an exact skill-set – only for as long as you need it. No long-term staffing or recruitment investment. No learning curve.
When you’re right in the middle of a major push and suddenly find yourself short of expertise, interim resourcing can make the difference – helping you to minimise downtime and keep the project on track.
