If you are a business looking to start doing business with an IT staffing solutions company there are a lot of different things you need to consider. You are of course going to do a lot of things before, during and after the signing of the contract. In this article, we explore the dos and don’ts that come along the way of dealing with these companies.
Why are we doing this too? Because it helps to keep things moving forward and makes both parties efficient. Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to save time for both parties to make them more productive.
Before Contract Signing with IT staffing Philippines service providers.
- Research a bit on the various companies that could potentially help you or provide solutions with your IT needs.
- Look into what exactly you need, how long you’ll need it.
- Compare the prices that each company gives for the service you need
- Shop blindly for the service provider. You need to be thorough while you shop for the right partner who will work for you.
- Don’t make the company representatives wait for a long time during initial talks. It would be better to just tell them that you found a better company or have been given a better offer by a different entity. Who knows what could happen? For all you know the first company may even give you an even better offer.
During the Signing of contracts with service providers
- Make sure to read up on the contract properly. Run it with your people or better yet, send it over to the company’s lawyers and have them see if the contract is up to par with what was discussed previously.
- Make sure to look at the important aspects that you need during the contract signing. Go back to what your business needs and see whether the contract you have in front of you will take care of that or provide a solution for your needs. Why would you even go into business with them if the important parts have been missed out right?
- Again, do not delay the contract signing too much. Set a date when you can formally sign contracts but don’t let it linger for more than a month. If you are a very meticulous individual, you can let the staffing provider; but for the love of god don’t make them wait for half a year or even a full year before you get back to them.
After signing and during actual work
- Always ensure that the people working with the company are properly taken care of. Yes they are not your employees but that doesn’t mean you have to treat them poorly. It is imperative that you show them the same respect you would do your own employees. And if you don’t show the same respect to any of your employees, you are a bad employer and your karma will be coming soon.
- Open a good line of communication between the provider and yourself or somebody you can delegate it to. Communication is key in winning and the same goes for staffing projects regardless of how short it could be. Ask them for reports and updates if possible.
