When can interim professionals add value?
Need for temporary expertise
In order to stay ahead of the competition, companies must innovate. There is the need to implement new technologies, strategies and business processes before falling behind – and there are many reasons why it may be impossible to have this expertise available in-house at that time.
Interim professionals often specialise in a specific field or function. They bring a wealth of experience from previous projects, which means they hit the ground running allowing you to go beyond business as usual.
Interim professionals are a great solution at such times. As outsiders, they see the organisation through fresh, objective eyes. As they are independent, it is easier for them to make tough decisions and implement changes. That is why interim professionals are ideal when you need to:
• Set up or implement new processes, systems or departments
• Manage changes or crises
• Manage mergers, acquisitions or restructuring
• Drive international expansion
Covering long-term absences
Long term absences happen. Employees may be absent for periods of time due to parental leave, sickness, secondments or even sabbaticals. One advantage of interim professionals is that they have often built a career path before deciding to go interim – meaning their extensive experience is always at their fingertips.
For administrative roles it is often a matter of finding a replacement quickly, with the right set of skills to ensure that processes continue smoothly. When it happens in a specialist role or at director level and above, we know that business operations, financial control, regulatory reporting demands and staff management cannot be put on hold.
Temporary workload increase
Every company goes through periods of increased workloads, for example, launching a new product, an audit, the end-of-year processes, or even changes to legislation and regulations.
At such times it is beneficial to be able to hire an expert who can get the job done without a training period. Interim professionals offer that expertise. They are effective and result-driven. Moreover, it is in their economic and career interest to complete the project on time.
