Imagine that you’ve just been tasked with hiring a neurosurgeon, plumber or fleet manager. How would you go about the search? What criteria would you use to evaluate capabilities? How would you measure past performance, whether they’re staying abreast of advancements in their profession and their ability to utilize those advancements?
Unless you possess those skills yourself, you’re not likely to have a clue. So it is in hiring IT professionals. Most business leaders have little more than surface level understanding of what IT professionals do, what their roles encompass or how to evaluate their prior experience and performance. That’s why we’ve developed our staff augmentation services.
At Alliance Technologies we go beyond evaluating the technical skills of potential employees for your company. We explore their values, behaviors and characteristics to ascertain whether or not they’re aligned with those of your company. Misalignment of values is one of the leading causes of unproductive hires which are costly for employers and employees alike.
We also evaluate prospective employees’ business acumen. It doesn’t matter how impressive their IT skills are if what they produce doesn’t enhance your customers’ experience, streamline business processes or improve the quality of your offerings. After all, you are in business to make money and you can only do that if you’re providing exceptional value to your customers.
Finally, we can see how your IT needs are evolving and what skills you’ll need in the near future. Evaluating future skill requirements is an essential element of our staff augmentation services. Save yourself a lot of time, money and headaches. Call Alliance Technologies 314-219-7887.
