When your company has a need for additional support due to changes in production, seasonal work or staff shortages, hiring temporary employees can be the ideal solution. They will provide you with the flexibility, skills and convenience you need to make seamless transitions without interfering with your business progress.
The Benefits of Temporary Employees
Evaluate your business needs to determine the best hiring approach. In many cases, supplementing permanent staff with temporary workers is the best strategic staffing decision for you. Temporary employees:
- Enable your company to adjust more easily and quickly to workload fluctuations. Your staffing agency can quickly provide qualified workers to cover short- and long-term absences or sudden resignations, as well as handle unexpected customer demands and special or seasonal projects.
- Provide staffing flexibility. You can easily adjust to changes in workload by adding or reducing temporary staff as needed, without having to hire full-time employees or implement layoffs. And with the ever-growing popularity of flex schedules, temps enable you to stay current with the needs of your best employees.
- Offer you access to new skill sets. Whether it’s for a limited time or the potential for a future full-time hire, a temporary employee can bring experience and expertise your company may not currently possess. If you wish, you can “try before you buy” and evaluate whether the company and the position are a good fit, before permanently hiring an individual.
- Are cost-effective. Your agency is responsible for recruiting, screening, skills testing, hiring, payroll taxes, unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation and benefits costs for your temporary employees. This not only frees you of this financial burden, but also allows you to continue to focus on your core business responsibilities. Plus, temporary workers are paid only for actual hours worked.
