Traditionally, employers piece together a team by hiring each position individually, whether they do it directly or through a 3rd party staffing firm or website. Some firms and websites which claim to assemble a custom team for you are really just piecing together the first available individuals at each position. The major flaw of both these models is that the employer has no guarantee these individuals will be able to work together efficiently and effectively. A lot of time and money can be wasted on evaluating whether or not all the pieces fit together cohesively. Often times, one or more of these pieces needs to be replaced until the right fit is achieved.
At Skillinker, employers can hire already established teams with proven success in working together. This removes the uncertainty and saves time, money and a lot of potential headaches.
