Alternative Staffing

Temporary employees are examples of alternative staffing- basically, the use of nontraditional recruitment sources. Other alternative staffing arrangements include “in house temporary employees” (people employed directly by the company, but on an explicit short-term basis) and “contract technical employees” (highly skilled workers like engineers, who are supplied for long-term projects under contract from an outside technical services firm).
