Everyone we put on a service initiative or project team are direct hires of Monarch. Temporary labor introduces too much inconsistency, not to mention a lack of commitment, to your mission. Your goals are simply too important to do something like this. With regards to booking a project or service and then triggering our human resources department to “hire to staff”, this can also introduce unknown variables into your planning efforts. For example, rapid changes in the hiring dynamics could affect our ability to meet the target team size. Additionally, this practice has the potential to lead to “over selling”, and you could be the customer that is not at the top of the priority list and have your project cut at the last minute. We have a staff plan that aligns with our growth goals, and we hire to that plan. We are up front with you about what we can and can’t do in terms of staffing your project.
