Information Technology (IT) is a huge part of most businesses these days and finding the right talent to fill critical roles can be quite challenging. The Provato Group specializes in helping organizations fill their most challenging roles. Let us do the heavy lifting so you can focus on driving projects and running your department.
Why Use IT Staffing Services?
Technologists are in high demand; the market is constantly evolving and finding the right talent for your organization can be painstaking. Leveraging a professional IT Staffing firm like The Provato Group can lessen your burden dramatically. You cannot simply rely on passive recruiting methods such as job posting websites to find the right type of talent that you seek. Proactive recruiting where you are talking and networking with hundreds of candidates with various disciplines is the way to go, but most department managers and HR departments do not have the time available to perform these types of recruiting tasks. They typically rely on website job postings and hope that candidates will find them.
This is where the IT Staffing service comes into play. We cast a wide net to find as many candidates as possible for your roles, but then do the necessary vetting to ensure that we only provide you with the most qualified and well-suited candidates for your needs. It is all about quality over quantity! You are not wasting time sifting through piles of resumes hoping to find a suitable nugget. Instead, you are filtering through a select few resumes that have been vetted to your requirements and evaluated for the required skill sets. At the end of the day, the candidate selection is still yours to make, but the time savings realized is a game changer!
The benefits of IT staffing can be realized in a variety of ways. We already discussed the time savings, which is huge, but what about the ability to vet the skills of your resource? You may be taking on a new technology or adding new skill and may not have the ability to properly vet your potential candidates. Having a staffing firm provide pre-vetted candidates can go a long way into ensuring your selection hits the mark.
Candidates will also benefit because we ensure that they are not being submitted for a job for which they are either over or under qualified. They can have the confidence of truly knowing the expectations of the role and understanding that they have a consultative partner in the IT staffing recruiter to help them through the process. The hiring process can be a stressful time for everyone and having a 3rd party recruiter helping to guide the process can help in minimizing stress for everyone.

When you don’t need a full-time employee but need the right resource for a specific project or duration of time.
Why choose Contractor Services?
- Budget versus FTE headcount. Often times it is easier to get budget than it is to get an incremental headcount. You may have a critical skill set need for a project or a new capability, but adding an FTE is not feasible. A contractor resource gives you the flexibility to expand or contract your staff without adding a permanent full-time head.
- Temporary needs. You may only need a certain expertise for a limited period of time. Going through the FTE hiring process for temporary need is not cost or time effective. Contractors can be added and removed quickly to support the demands of the business.
- Salary structure. You may need a resource with extensive experience in a particular high demand skill, but your FTE salary structure does align with the cost of the resource. Hiring that role as a contractor allows you to keep your salary structure in tact but still obtain the talent that you need to accomplish your goals.
Contract to Hire
Sometimes the best way to ensure that you hire the right person is to try them out before making a long-term commitment (i.e. Try and Buy)
Why choose Contract to Hire Model?
- Budget (headcount) timing versus work schedules. The ability to hire FTE’s and project schedules do not always align. The contract to hire model enables you the ability to bring on resources when you need them most but allows the flexibility to work through HR and budgeting processes for headcount approvals.
- Ensuring there is a fit after a match. If you hire a contractor with the possibility of full-time employment, you can see how the contractor performs along with how they blend with your company’s culture. At Provato, our matchmaking is exceptional, but before a full-time opportunity is offered, you can see the matchmaking proof for yourself.
- Cost savings. Sometimes, the economy isn’t as strong, or budgets need to be met. The contract to hire model allows you to fulfill a changing workload before committing to hire a contractor full-time if the need arises.
Full Time Placement
When you need a full-time professional, but do not have the capacity to sift through countless resumes or keep up with every technological advancement.
Why Choose Full Time Placement?
- Core Competency. Some roles represent the core of your department responsibilities and having FTE’s in those roles can be beneficial. It may also require proprietary knowledge and time investment that cannot be easily replaced which lends itself to an FTE.
- Mission Critical roles. Roles that are critical to your business or services are ideally owned within the organization. Investing in these roles with long term FTE resources are generally the best way to go to ensure continuity of service.
- Leadership roles. Typically, leadership roles are filled with FTE’s. Leaders represent and drive the culture of your organization which requires a level of engagement that typically only comes from an FTE.
When you need access to critical resources, but don’t need them every day or even every week.
Why Choose the OnDemand Model?
- Part-Time Needs. Your needs are very real but not necessarily regular enough to warrant a full-time resource. OnDemand allows you to leverage resources when you need them and only pay for what you use.
- Multiple Skill Sets. You may need multiple skill sets that you cannot easily hire in one resource. OnDemand enables you to leverage multiple skill sets and multiple resources, only when you need them.
- Insurance Policy. You need to know that you will have the support from skilled resources when you need them, but it is not cost-effective to hire those resources on your full-time staff. OnDemand ensures that you have the necessary resources when you need them.
