Staff Augmentation for Learning and Development eBook

Staff Augmentation for Learning and Development: The Agile Talent Solution for Modern Business is a practical guide for L&D managers, sharing how to find L&D talent with the right skills, onboard them to your team, and vet staff augmentation vendors.

San Francisco, Calif., Oct. 21, 2019 — Leading custom learning solutions and staff augmentation provider SweetRush has published its fourth free eBook, Staff Augmentation for Learning and Development: The Agile Talent Solution for Modern Business—a timely and relevant how-to guide for Learning and Development (L&D) managers, whose departments are tasked with creating a high volume of learning programs as the need for employee training grows.

These managers must meet the vital business challenge of 1) finding the right L&D talent—in a market where highly skilled talent is scarce—and 2) ensuring these professionals are ready to work when needed in response to the frenzied pace of change in business models, organizational cultures, technology, and other areas—and the training these things necessitate. Savvy organizations are already utilizing staff augmentation—or agile talent—as a secret weapon in their L&D departments, enabling them to quickly design, develop, and deploy learning programs to more capably upskill or increase knowledge in workers.

Staff Augmentation for Learning and Development: The Agile Talent Solution for Modern Business is a comprehensive guide that delivers real value and practical, actionable insights for L&D managers. SweetRush Manager of Talent Solutions Rodrigo Salazar-Kawer takes readers on an educational journey that features how to find professionals with the skills and knowledge their teams and initiatives require, how to rapidly bring on this temporary talent and integrate them into their team, how to effectively onboard and off-board consultants for optimal impact and return, and how to find and thoroughly vet L&D staff augmentation companies when seeking a staffing partner.  

“Everyone knows that finding great talent in a tight labor market is increasingly tough. While this is true, great people are always available somewhere, and it’s essential you find them,” says Salazar-Kawer. “You need every possible advantage in your talent acquisition and management, and sometimes the right thing to do is to go the temporary talent route because the ROI just makes sense.”

Salazar-Kawer continues: “With globalization and connectedness leveling the playing field, organizations with lean and agile management strategies have a competitive advantage. The agile talent model is part of that Fourth Industrial Revolution approach to business. HR departments and hiring managers, therefore, must adopt their own strategies for responding to needs that are constantly in flux, and for hiring specialists faster and meeting overall business objectives.”
