Ask any CIO what’s the biggest challenge they face, and they will likely answer “the IT talent gap.” While this issue is nothing new, organizations continue to experience difficulty filling critical roles with qualified individuals.

Before reconsidering taking on projects, however, try seeking out the help of an IT staffing partner to find talented resources. IT staffing partners can help your organization find the right IT professionals, augment your staff, and even become permanent members of your team.

Here are four key questions to consider when choosing a staffing partner for your business:

Do you have experience placing resources in my industry?

No two industries are alike. Each has specific individual considerations, requirements, and regulations. It is crucial that your staffing partner thoroughly understands your sector when placing candidates.

CBTS leverages a database with thousands of proven IT professionals from a variety of backgrounds. As a result, CBTS has successfully placed candidates in numerous industries, making their services effective even when filling niche positions.

Do your IT professionals have experience with this type of project?

It is important to understand your IT staffing partner’s previous experience. CBTS specialists have worked on a wide range of operations, so you know you are bringing in an experienced partner when you work with CBTS.

Whether you’re migrating to the cloud, implementing new technologies, or recovering from a breach, cover your business by partnering with proven staffing consultants.

Does your team have the right certifications?

Make sure your IT staffing partner has highly certified professionals on their team. Your different project needs may require IT professionals with specific backgrounds.

The CBTS database is filled with trained specialists who are fully certified and supported by a team of technology professionals. By confirming your IT staffing partner’s professionals have the certifications you need, you ensure you’re engaging candidates who will work effectively within your organization.

Do you offer project management?

As you bring in outside resources for important IT projects, you’ll want to ensure all of your professionals work as a single unit. It’s a smart idea to employ a project manager who can keep all initiatives on track to consistently meet your company’s goals. By choosing an IT staffing partner that places candidates in project management roles, you achieve cohesion among departments and produce well-executed projects.
