Why Resources-as-a-Service (RaaS) for EHS Is Gaining Fast Popularity
Sometimes an extra set of capable hands can make all the difference. Resources-as-a-Service (RaaS) is based on a simple concept: When businesses need some extra hands-on expertise, they’ll effectively “rent” select employees from an established firm to come and work on a temporary basis. This allows companies to sidestep the often-costly process of finding, screening, and recruiting new hires when their situation may call for a more temporary and/or specialized type of help.
For many companies, this can be an ideal set-up. RaaS assignments are completely flexible in terms of both scope of work and length of engagement. A company may need a professional with 10+ years of experience to manage and lead EHS or Sustainability initiatives, or it may need a few employees for day-to-day tactical work.
Many industries aren’t strangers to these types of arrangements. Outsourced staffing has been used for years within general business functions such as finance and administration. And the model has been extensively used in the technology industry for software development or special projects.
But something interesting is happening: RaaS is gaining ground with EHS leaders. Especially now, with the precarious circumstances surrounding COVID-19, RaaS is proving to be exceptionally valuable to EHS leaders.
