Staff augmentation allows a company to add staff to their teams based on the additional skills required to support their initiatives. Resources are employed by the staff augmentation firm.
When an active project has a need for more resources in order to be completed on time, staff augmentation is typically the best option, and is often the only option. Existing employees often embrace a staff augmentation model more than a project outsourcing model. They are less likely to feel threatened by augmenting staff with a few individuals than by outsourcing entire projects.
It’s easier to adopt a staff augmentation model than a project outsourcing model. Companies are already used to hiring employees. Staff augmentation is just a small shift from what companies already do.
