Should You Hire a Unicorn or an Agency?

Justin Gray / April 06, 2017 / 0 Comments

It takes a village.

There’s a lot of talk about unicorns these days. One group is talking about billion-dollar startups. The other, magical new hires expected to solve all the company’s problems overnight and under-budget. The simple truth is: there are no unicorns–and even if there were, you shouldn’t be hunting them.

It’s a question of opportunity cost. What’s not getting done while you hold out for a unicorn hire? Do you really think you can find one? And even if you could, what happens when you discover he or she has no interest in being your new plow horse?

Staff augmentation with an agency, however, means the right person, with the right skills, right where you need them, when you need them. Give this article a quick read and ask yourself, “Do I want to adopt a unicorn–or rent an agency?”
