The Challenges of IT Staffing are Permanent – But New Alternatives are Arising
Finding qualified onsite contract based IT personnel has been time consuming, expensive and difficult for many years now. It continues to be plagued by dependence on a limited candidate pool, the high cost of resources; travel and infrastructure, immigration challenges and scalability.
