Today’s business environment moves faster than ever. You have to continually innovate – in a cost-effective manner – to increase sales and market share. Technology needs to support all your growth initiatives, but technology is innovating and changing as well. To stay on top, you may need to augment your IT staff so you can focus on the core business at hand. You need to work with a company that can provide the knowledgeable, experienced IT talent you need, when you need it, for smooth system implementations, upgrades and enhancements.

So when you are ready to find a partner for your IT staffing needs, here are 5 things you should look for.

  • Recruiters that speak IT. Staff augmentation can be challenging if you work with a recruiter with little background in technology, the needed roles or how the two interact. At Keste, our recruiters speak IT and are fully certified across a wide spectrum of Oracle and Salesforce products and technologies.
  • Access to the talent you need. At Keste, we proactively recruit in order to maintain an active talent base for immediate requests and turnarounds. We source constantly, not just after the contract has been signed. When you work with Keste for your staff augmentation needs, you have access to every Keste consultant company-wide. We have the boutique consulting talent you need now, with all the flexibility of a traditional staff augmentation delivery model.
  • Industry reputation.You want to work with a reputable firm for your IT staffing needs. Great talent wants to work with great companies. At Keste, you will find both — a great reputation and great talent. We are not only a leading Salesforce Gold Consulting Partner, but we are an award-winning Oracle Platinum Partner. Our solutions have won Oracle’s coveted Specialized Partner of the Year 5 years in a row and numerous Oracle Excellence Awards.
  • Experience with your technologies. You need the same level of knowledge and experience for your staff augmentation needs as you do for everything else. With Keste’s staffing delivery model, you acquire the same industry-leading expertise but with all the flexibility inherent in a staffing model. At Keste, our IT talent pool runs deep, across the full spectrum of Oracle and Salesforce technologies.
  • Understand your needs. Let’s face it, an IT position at two different organizations may have the same title but have completely different roles and responsibilities. At Keste, we have worked across a wide variety of industries (and across a wide variety of companies). We understand what you need for a good fit.

Trying to meet today’s technology staffing needs with yesterday’s IT staffing expertise is like running a 3-legged race at the Boston Marathon.  These questions are a great starting point to help you determine what you need from your staff augmentation partner to acquire the high-quality talent you need in a expedient manner.
