5 Ways IT Staffing Firms Saved Companies Money in 2023

5 Ways IT Staffing Firms Saved Companies Money in 2023

As economic uncertainties weighed on companies in 2023, many looked to trim costs without sacrificing their tech capabilities and talent. IT staffing firms proved invaluable partners, providing specialized talent that drove innovation while optimizing budgets in various areas.



Here are 5 key ways we helped organizations reduce expenses this past year:

  1. Just-In-Time Talent
    • Rather than huge, unnecessary investments in full-time tech talent, IT staffing firms provided targeted contract professionals aligned to immediate project needs. This cut costs by over 60% compared to hiring the same skills full-time (Robert Half, 2023).
  2. Flexible Staffing Models
    • IT staffing firms offer access to talent through flexible models like project-based contracts, statement of work arrangements, and temp-to-hire. This allowed companies to size their tech teams and expenses to current workload vs overhiring (CompTIA, 2023)
  3. Unique Access to Niche Skill Sets
    • With connections across industries, IT staffing firms quickly tap specialized talent like AI engineers or Salesforce architects that companies couldn’t easily find themselves. This eliminated extensive recruitment costs (LinkedIn, 2023).
  4. Reduced Training Expenses
    • By handling vetting and onboarding, IT staffing firms ensured contractors hit the ground running. Companies saved over $5,000 per engineer by avoiding lengthy internal training (Code Platoon, 2023).
  5. Geographical Diversification
    • Nearshore talent from regions like Latin America allowed companies to maintain quality while saving 50% over domestic staffing (Everest Group, 2023).

The Takeaway

In 2023, IT staffing firms enabled unprecedented flexibility and optimization of tech teams. This translated into millions saved as businesses navigated volatile conditions – a trend that will continue accelerating.
