Whether you’re facing a seasonal rush, transitioning within your company or simply need to finish a large specialized project, working with a recruiter to find qualified temp staff can significantly ease your burden. Here’s how.
- Temp workers offer a productivity “boost.” Temporary workers are goal-oriented and know they have only a short time to finish a big task. This makes them more likely to produce and less likely to “goof off” on the clock. During a busy period, the fresh energy and focus of temporary employees can help you get things done.
- Temporary staff are available in every field. No matter what training or skill sets you need a temporary staff member to have, staff exist to help you meet that need. Your recruiter knows who is available and who will offer the best “fit” with your existing staff.
- Temp workers can cover for staff who are on vacation. Summer means vacation time for most of your staff – but with appropriate temp help in place, you can ensure that the business stays on track, even when your staff are getting their much-needed rest. Meet your goals and get your existing staff back refreshed and ready to work at the same time.
- Temporary help can support your existing staff and prevent burnout. Having an extra set of hands available protects your top performers from stress and burnout during a time of transition or a big project. When the “storm” has passed, you return to your regular staffing levels, allowing you to control costs.
- Temp contracts let you take new staff for a “trial run.” Develop a relationship with a candidate and see how they do on the job – before you commit to a long-term relationship! If you’re looking to hire a permanent candidate “eventually,” starting with temporary staff as you transition to needing a long-term person can help you find the best new team member available.
- Your recruiter handles the paperwork. In most cases, your staffing agency will be a temporary worker’s “employer of record.” This means they will handle the paperwork, screening, drug testing, and other tasks. You can bring in the capabilities you need without increasing headcount.
