PC games and software company Stardock has created a staffing company in effort to offer its employees a work environment with some actual long-term stability.
The firm told Gamasutra its SSC (Stardock Staffing Company) has been formed to shift the greatest of assets, people, around when necessary – thus largely avoiding the round of layoffs that typically occur after the completion of a product.
Along with its internal slate, the company is also invested as a publisher for Mohawk Games and Oxide Games. It will look to work within this network to “lease” employees without the individual having to relocate.
Stardock believes the new division should help reduce costs, retain talent, and create an overall greater sense of job security for its staff.
