When would you use Contract personnel?

Lawson Williams’s clients have a variety of reasons for instigating temporary staffing solutions.

Traditionally special projects, the need for specialist expertise, and parental leave are the key drivers for this resource.

Demand has steadily grown as companies have looked for greater flexibility, increased training and development resources and the need to act rapidly in a global market place.

Today an increasing focus is being placed on sustainability which is particularly relevant in the current economic climate. Many organisations are seeking to balance their workforce between permanent and contract resource to ensure that they alleviate the need of downsizing their core employees and through this achieve sustainability of their permanent workforce.
