The Blended Workforce

How Your Business Can Benefit From Contracting Top Technical Talent

Say goodbye to the traditional workforce, and hello to amazing benefits for your business.

The hottest word in employment right now is “blended workforce.” The term defines a workforce that brings together full-time employees, freelancers, part-time workers, and/or contract workers.

In creating a blended workforce, companies benefit in huge, positive ways. Let’s take a look at several of the biggest benefits.

A new kind of diversity

“In the past five years, the gig economy has become a major trend impacting the global workforce, and has created a new kind of diversity, with full-time permanent employees working side-by-side with freelancers,” according to Forbes.

The blend of IT contractors and traditional office workers enables different insights and perspectives when they tackle a project together. There’s less rigidity of thought and more openness in ideas.


When you contract IT talent, you allow your company the flexibility of scaling the team up or down, depending on the project at the time. For example, you don’t need to keep all those involved in a previous project if the new project requires fewer workers. Contract work allows you to scale your team as needed.

And if you’re open to remote workers, you can widen the net for technology talent by hiring outside of your region. You have the flexibility of choosing out-of-state candidates and even global ones.

Saving yourself from potential disaster

When you contract technical staff, you can avoid expensive hiring mistakes. Because the consultant is not a full-time employee, you have fewer hurdles scale if the person ends up being the wrong fit for your project.

And if you go through a reputable agency like Consultis, you can have the peace of mind that the selection process for IT talent will produce the right fit for your company.

Inspire healthy competition

When you hire a contractor, that person is very aware that excellent job performance may enable future work from your company and will produce quality work.

Moreover, your contract worker may give your team a boost of healthy competition because he or she will be working at a strong, “give me more work” level.

Reduced costs

Hire anyone lately? Then you know the cost can be hefty. You’re not just paying for the salary, but you have to pay for the recruiting, training, and benefits for the new hire as well. And if the process doesn’t go smoothly, you may find yourself paying around $3,500 in turnover costs, both direct and indirect, according to Investopedia.

Fortunately, when you work with Consultis, you don’t have to worry about turnover costs. We have a personal touch in finding the best possible technology candidates for companies.
