The IT Staffing Industry is beginning to see the benefit of an improved economy. There is an increased demand for IT professionals, particularly with hot skills … this is all good, right? Well … yes, and no.
With the changing markets Staffing Companies face different challenges and one of the challenges of a “hot market” is the “questionable tactics” employed by some companies and by some individuals. Here is what we are seeing at an increasing pace, today …
- Contractors leaving contracts for a few extra dollars;
- Contractor’s committing to contracts but changing their mind and taking different contracts;
- Contractors going on interviews with no intent to take the job; and
- Recruiters persuading contractors to bail on commitments for a few extra dollars.
If our industry is ever going to reach its potential as a key strategic resourcing partner for the 21st century we need to get on the same page with ethical standards. Independent contractors need to act in a way they would want to be treated and staffing companies need to embody the highest of ethics!
