If your company is struggling to fill your open IT staffing positions, there’s a reason why. The cost of hiring has been on the rise since 1992. A research study investigating more than 30 hiring case studies between 1992 and 2007 reports the average cost of hiring runs as high as 20% of the annual salary for each position.
When you factor in lost production and new business development, it’s becoming clear for leading companies of the benefit of outsourcing their IT offers the best ROI.
One of the newest staffing trends facing millions of businesses is what we refer to as the tumbler affect. A minor downtime occurrence on one of your servers suddenly impacts multiple employees. If left unresolved more than one business day, your company suffers lost production. If you have 100 users all limited in work production due to downtime, the math becomes exponentially unprofitable.
When hiring internal IT engineers, many companies hand their network vulnerabilities over to a few key people responsible for your entire system. Although the market demand for IT professionals is growing, finding candidates with the appropriate expertise takes time.
A great challenge with in-house hiring is in the vetting process. Usually in the selection process of final candidates forcing you to consider these issues:
- Do your applicants have the proper qualifications?
- Are your human resources managers qualified to know?
- Is your network held hostage by a few key IT engineers?
- Do you have a backup coverage plan for your IT staff?
- Will turnover cause your systems to be left unmanaged?
