Is a temporary workforce what your company needs right now?
THE ADVANTAGES OF A TEMPORARY WORKFORCE
Temporary and contract workers are essential to a modern company’s recruitment strategy. They can bring specialist knowledge, support for one off project and encourage dynamics and flexibility within an organisation
With this in mind, here are the Top Five considerations for introducing a temporary workforce
Fast hires can make an immediate difference to productivity and your company. Not only can they relieve your existing staff from being overburdened and eventually burning out they can support the business needs if you are faced with regular employee absence, maternity cover or seasonal demands
Considering temporary cover at these times can also eliminate the need to appoint a permanent member that may not be needed all year round
If your business needs to scale up for a period of time or requires shift support, temporary staff could be your best option. If you are using a reputable recruitment partner, the recruitment staff would have gone through an induction and specific job briefing and therefore gained an understanding of the need for flexible and availability at short notice.
SPECIALIST SKILL SETS
Temporary and contract candidates can offer specialist skill sets which may be perfect for short term assignments. Its also worth considering the fresh perspective they can bring to projects. By entering a workforce without being burdened by the companies culture or habits, they can bring new approaches or ideas that may not have been previously considered.
MEET A DEADLINE
Bringing in a temporary member of staff can enable you to meet project deadlines and handle extraordinary business demands thereby increasing the bottom line. Fast moving organisations are competitive and successful
THE MOVE FROM TEMP TO PERM
If at the end of the contract or assigned period, you find that the person you’ve hired temporarily has added value to your organisation there may be a chance to hire them permanently. Or you may have gone into an agreement with a permanent position in mind
Either way, temporary candidates can provide a great no obligation solution when considering a new position in your organisation or within an established team.
