Unforeseen hurdles can require public sector bodies to rapidly and effectively increase their resources of trained staff to support the needs of their organisation. This ability to scale operations up (or down) swiftly, smoothly and productively is vital for fulfilling the mandate of the department and ensuring scarce resources are used efficiently and with maximum impact.

The need for adequate surge capacity can be difficult to anticipate and can be affected by a number of factors, including:

  • Responding to evolving needs of the organisation or department as their portfolio grows in responsibilities and need for temporary additional staff to support on business-as-usual tasks during periods of increased workload.
  • Responding to a specific problem and need for specialist advisors to support implementing specific project requirements, often at short notice and urgent in nature.

The need to onboard staff, often at haste, can create new liability risks for organisations if the staff sourced are not fit for purpose. Therefore, it’s important that organisations ensure that additional resources sourced are appropriately trained and accredited, and remain so throughout the duration of requirement.
