If there is one thing that can be said of today’s times in context of employers and job seekers, finding a job has become a case of a low hanging fruit. There is a myriad of mediums and platforms which not only happen to be easily accessible, but also provide a diverse range of options to people looking for employment.
So the job seekers, whether fresh graduates or people with work experience, have the luxury of choices today. If you have a bona fide degree with you which is backed by reasonably work experience and skills, the scheme of things are quite in your favour.
Having explained that, can the same be said of businesses looking to hire people for very specific project requirements? The answer lies somewhere between ‘may be’ and ‘not quite.’ For an organization, the process of hiring is hugely different in terms of ease from the process of looking for a job. Whilst we are not implying that job seekers have it easier than employee seekers, the fact remains that employers do not have the luxury of flexibility which job seekers do.
If we look at it from the perspective of the regular hiring model, a job seekers applies for different openings posted on a job portal. Employers have the job of scanning and filtering all the incoming applications and decide which one works best of them, in the face of lack of evidence. So they may be having very specific requirements for a given project, but while looking for human resources to work on them, all they have to go by is resumes and the spoken word, which may not always suffice. The potential candidates may have worked on many projects, but if a given project has unique requirements and goals, how can the employer be sure that they are hiring the right people?
But this is only a part of the problem. The bigger problem lies in the fact that employers have to pay to employees even when they are passive, which is to say, not actively assigned to a project. And this leads to huge amounts of money being wasted away as a result.
Employers across the globe have indeed found an alternative that counters these challenges head on and gives companies the flexibility and the wherewithal to extract the best out of the available resources. By outsourcing their jobs to the companies that provide manpower outsourcing services, businesses go a long way in ensuring they have the best of minds at work on their projects, and they are only paying them for the work they are getting out of them.
There is no sense of complexity to the whole thing; based on a thorough research and study of the reliable service providers (this research and analysis is easier to carry out than the one that goes into scouting and hiring people for internal payroll), companies can get into a partnership with businesses that have a greater control over the quality of human resources they can hire and respond to the requirements in a more suitable and well-defined manner. They can use their expertise to provide their clients with workers who are just right for the requirements being communicated. There is more explore with manpower outsourcing, and once you take the plunge, it’s there to witness it first hand.
