“Help!” you shout over the phone while speaking to a staffing agency – “We’ve hit our busy season and need more employees here, and fast.”
Regardless of the industry you are in, there will be instances where extra hands are needed. Bringing in a temporary employee, will be the quickest and easiest solution for you. They can fill the gap effectively and efficiently, without the burden of long-term commitments and provides companies a great degree of flexibility.
You are no longer limited in the roles you can fill with a temporary employee as you were a few years ago. The need and preference to work on temporary roles has become very popular with both individuals and firms. You can find temps to do accounting tasks, marketing functions, administrative assistants and other executive-level duties
The work landscape is very dynamic in nature and the employers must be ready for any unforeseen changes that may come such as employees going on leave – may it be vacation or maternity, during special projects, seasonal periods or even when the company faces a surge in business.
An additional benefit of utilizing temporary staff is you can evaluate the employee’s skills and expertise before committing to a long-term contract. This is known as “try before you hire”.
In order to ease your temp into their role, we recommend that you assign someone to be their guide at your firm to show them around, familiarize them with your equipment, as well as to explain any of your important company policies and procedures.
