It is often a solution that the IT industry chooses to be assertive and reduce costs.
A trend that is beginning to emerge in other industries. In this article, we tell you everything you need to know about Staff Augmentation.

What is Staff Augmentation?

It is a strategy to add value to your organization by flexibly hiring specialized people. In some areas, this strategy is also called “implants.”

The concept of “Staff Augmentation” was born in the IT industry, where short and medium-term projects that require individual profiles with particular competencies, skills, and experience tend to appear.

Oxean provides the Staff Augmentation service, making all the administrative and recruitment work available. We take care of the search, selection, hiring, mentoring, and fine-tuning of the person’s role.

Meanwhile, the company will incorporate new people into its team, assigning their responsibilities and setting their objectives.

Staff Augmentation can be hired for a specific period or a specific project.

Differences with traditional outsourcing

You may be wondering what the difference is with outsourcing. In this service, the project management and the product delivery are in the provider’s charge. Therefore, it is the main responsible for the results. 

IT companies usually hire outsourcing when they do not have a team with experience developing software with the needed features or if the in-house engineering team cannot provide it.

However, Staff Augmentation provides much more added value. Here are the advantages.
