Augmenting staff is now a required staffing strategy employed by information technology companies, where there is a continuous struggle to train and retain IT professionals. Whether it is new projects that come up which need specialized skills, and which may not justify a permanent hiring or it is the critical need of skilled experts backing up the many applications that are changing the way business processes now function, staff augmentation is the most preferred solution. The specialized skills and expertise, the flexibility and the cost benefits that staff augmentation offers makes it a no-brainer choice.
The de-facto choice for your changing staffing needs.
The Creamos Edge
Creamos technical staffing wing specializes in sourcing IT contractors. Every single requirement of our clients is processed meticulously. Recommendations are made by our highly experienced senior staff engineers. Our senior staff engineer first consults with the hiring IT professional to understand thoroughly what the job requirements are, and based on this understanding, personally screens, selects and recommends the most suitable talent, based on their competencies.
Traditionally, IT hiring criteria has been limited to knowledge of specific technologies that are used in the job. However, at Creamos we understand that technical consideration alone does not guarantee a success, and that a qualitative job spec should be multidimensional, detailing the exact work that needs to be accomplished in the project and the nature of tasks and procedures involved. We use uncompromising selection criteria in evaluating the personality and work-ethic of our prospective hires, to balance their soft-skills with their technical skills.
Since Creamos has its own ongoing intensive development projects, all the talent we recommend to you would have already worked on our projects, and our recommending senior staff engineer would have first-hand knowledge of their competencies to assure you the most appropriate fit.
