Choosing Cost-Saving Staffing Solutions During the Coronavirus Pandemic

21st April 2020 - 12:00

It feels as though the world has turned upside down in the past month. Life as we know it has completely changed, as has the way we do business. Some of us have had to adjust to working from home for the first time in our careers, while others have had to make some really difficult decisions and minimise their workforce and expenses.

No business leader wants to make these tough calls or to scale back, but this outbreak has presented us all with challenging circumstances. Advento Staffing offers a range of outplacement and recruitment services via our ‘Advento Solutions’ offering. 

Here are some options you could consider if you are a decision-maker, or if you find yourself at a career crossroads.


Subscribe to an In-House Tech Talent Service


Netflix, Spotify, meal delivery services, Amazon Prime…we subscribe to a lot of things in this day and age. Advento Solutions offers a similar concept for tech recruitment via our in-house talent service.

For a fixed fee, businesses will have access to our full team of experienced tech recruiters. Our team can adjust to the needs of your business and become an extension of your HR team, delivering the same values and quality service to potential future employees. This option saves on the traditional recruitment fee, and allows better cash flow management for scaling businesses. As a result, this option is the ideal solution for businesses looking to grow over a certain period.


Outsource Your Tech Project Consultancy


While it feels at times the world has come to a total halt, that’s not the case and things must carry on. Trading must continue, and projects need to resume in order to avoid delays or loss of resources. In some cases, it makes sense to bring in an outside contractor to help get the job done.

Advento can organise Work Package Solutions or Statements of Work for your tech project with highly experienced teams in Technology, Data Change and Cyber. There are various benefits to choosing this type of arrangement, which we’ve outlined in a blog here. Our team will clearly define deliverables and timelines for each project, and provide regular progress reports along the way. This solution allows you to get the assistance and expertise you need without having to make a long-term staffing commitment.


Assistance with Outplacement and HR Services


No business owner wants to let staff go, but sadly this is one of the first areas where businesses scale back to cut costs. Without strong outplacement or HR practices in place, released employees may be left floundering or feeling really put out by the experience.

Advento Solutions Offers a range of services to help and support staff exiting the business. This includes CV advice and formatting, career advice via 1-2-1 or group sessions, training sessions on topics such as using LinkedIn, personal branding assistance, and interviewing training. We can help prepare departing staff for their next chapter and ensure they are equipped with all they need to stay afloat after leaving your organisation.
