The hiring of full-time employees to work on a specific project costs extra time, money, and effort than is needed. Businesses can also add specialist professionals to their existing teams to work on a temporary basis. This saves money on salaries as well as benefits and other costs associated with hiring a full-time employee. However they may not have the skills necessary to complete a particular project. Staff augmentation offers companies the possibility of hiring for short-term, immediate and specific needs of the company without compromising the high quality of the people they hire on.
