Do take note that you will still be in charge of the administrative, IT, training, and in most cases recruitment of your staff. Seat leasing gets you just that, seats. Types Of Seat Leasing There are a few different variations of seat leasing. While they all share the concept of leasing space and workstations, there are little variations that affect their cost and implementation. Warm Seat Leasing - while this may still be under the name seat leasing, it is more akin to remote staffing or outsourcing. Under this model you lease seats but the company you’re partnering with will also recruit for you. You still have full control over administrative and operational aspects. Cold Seat Leasing - also known as seat leasing or incubation, this is the most common form of seat leasing. Under this model you lease seats while you handle the recruitment, administration, and operational aspects of your staff. Co-working Seat Leasing - this version is essentially like cold seat leasing or incubation model with the major difference being you share the workstations. This option has the most competitive price among all the seat leasing options. Make sure to inquire about what seat leasing offers companies have. Depending on the company, they may have different terms or different pricings depending on certain factors. Wrapping It Up Whether you’re on a budget, need a temporary place of operations, or just don’t want to invest in your own permanent infrastructure, there is a seat leasing plan out there for you. All the perks of an already built infrastructure while you get full control of your staff. If managing HR and IT isn’t something you’d like to do, and you’d rather focus on the operational side of things, maybe a remote staffing or outsourcing model would work better for you and your company.
