In the IT industry, employee leasing has become a common practice that allows companies to complete their projects and tasks flexibly as well as effectively. The transfer of IT professionals from one company to another allows you to gain temporary support for specific projects or tasks without having to recruit your own employees.
One of the main reasons why employee leasing is so common in IT is the rapid technological changes in the industry. Companies need to constantly keep their skills and knowledge up to date in order to remain competitive in the long term. Employee leasing allows them to gain access to skilled professionals without having to worry about their education and training. In addition, competition for talent and junior staff is increasing, and finding suitable candidates is becoming increasingly difficult and cost-intensive.
There are a variety of challenges facing IT today. The greatest difficulty arguably involves attracting and retaining suitably skilled workers over the long term. According to a study by Bundesverband für Informationswirtschaft, Telekommunikation und neue Medien (German Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media), there were almost 86,000 unfilled positions in IT at the end of 2020. In the event of personnel bottlenecks or order peaks, temporary staffing can be a sensible alternative. In addition, the following challenges can generally be identified:
- Protecting corporate data and systems from cyber threats and data loss.
- Integrating new technologies within existing systems and processes to increase efficiency and productivity.
- Collaborating and communicating with various departments and teams to ensure IT solutions meet the needs of the business.
- Complying with regulations and data protection requirements.
- Dealing with rapid changes in technology and the associated need to constantly acquire new skills and knowledge.
- Providing IT support and services to employees and customers to resolve issues quickly and effectively.
Professional services generally entail services performed by experts ("professionals") who have special skills and knowledge in an area for which expert knowledge is generally required.

These services can vary and include, for example, consulting in the implementation of IT systems, support in the integration and development of software solutions , training of employees in the use of IT systems and support in troubleshooting and maintaining IT systems.
