IT Staffing in India and What to Avoid

Updated: Mar 31

Peter Drucker, legendary Management Guru, has said - "Because the purpose of business is to create a customer, the business enterprise has two and only two primary functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs."


Everything else apart from Marketing and Innovation that your business has to do is a cost and a distraction from your core business.




We at LightSapien help you reduce your costs and distractions to some extent through our established Lightsapien Staff Augmentation (LSA) services.


Staff Augmentation

Whether you are a start-up or growing business, you need experienced, dedicated and skilled resources to help you execute your plans. After months of research, you find a suitable fit, but the candidate is over your budget. Another candidate fits your budget but does not possess the required skills/expertise and experience.

After you find a suitable resource, you need to plan for all the operational and administrative facilities, such as provisioning for a workstation through your admin team, an employment visa if required, relocation allowance, medical benefits, govt. mandated PF/Tax compliances and allowances along with company policy benefits, adding up to your EBITDA expenses.

In addition, you need to plan out the personal growth of the resources by providing professional training, promotions, performance appraisals, extracurricular activities and more. The majority of these activities do not add much value to your organization.

We at LightSapien Private Limited can get you all that you need at a fraction of the cost of hiring the right resources on your payroll for your business, minus the bandwidth allocation for support activities.


You can hire the required number of developers and engineers from our talented pool and start managing them directly without having to worry about the operational and administrative hassles related to full-time employment in your business.

This flexible outsourcing strategy enables your function to hire suitable resources globally and manage the augmented team directly. You can choose and select from a large pool of suitably qualified candidates and also have the flexibility to scale up or scale down the augmented team as per your requirement.

A professional and progressive environment will support our resources at LightSapien and seamless business connectivity. Get better cost-effectiveness with LightSapien Staff Augmentation (LSA) services while you remain focussed on your core work of development, marketing and innovation.


Benefits of LightSapien Staff Augmentation (LSA) services:


Hiring flexibility

  • You will have the flexibility to meet changing staff needs (in terms of skills required, numbers, varying durations)

Cost Efficiency

  • Save on all other administrative and organizational expenses such as administrative, benefits and compliance costs. We take care of everything for a reasonable service fee.

  • Specialized requirement vs. temporary need, shop for a specific and specialized skillset for your temporary need without the need for permanent onboarding.

Control and Management

  • You still retain total control over the work and management, unlike in a project outsourcing model, where the entire workings of a project are transferred to an external unit. Only the human resourcing remains externally augmented, not the Intellectual Property of your business.

We at LightSapien have been assisting companies globally in finding and managing their resources effectively. We work closely with the companies and manage a large chunk of operational processes, further enabling them to devote their time and energy to focus on their core areas. We provide end-to-end human resource management by managing the whole administration and providing high quality and relevant tech talent for specific business needs.
