If you are considering hiring temporary employees but are unsure about whether it is the best move for your business, then this blog post is for you. Many tend to wonder what benefits hiring temporary employees have on your business as it is short term rather than long term. Despite common fears, there are many advantages of hiring temporary workers that this blog post will outline for you.
An Insight to Hiring Temporary Employees
As with all hiring procedures conducted via Influx, anyone we provide would be a match to your requirements. Our goal is not only to work with you, but to also understand your culture, help solve your problems and demonstrate to candidates what is expected of the temporary employee before placement. When employing someone on your behalf, we work as an extension of your company. The more knowledge we have about you, the easier it will be to pass that knowledge onto the temporary employee. Understanding your business will make a bigger impact when we place someone.
This is true for both permanent and temporary workers. We encourage temporary candidates to treat the vacancy as they would a permanent one. The option to continue from temporary to permanent is always a possibility. This drives candidates to perform well. In return, employers should be prepared to deliver in-depth brief to help us determine who is the best fit for your company.
Advantages of Temporary Workers
Temporary workers can be a great asset to your business as they ensure the smooth running in peak times or to complete a project within a specific timescale. Hiring temporary employees can be an overall cost-saving attribute to your business. By employing agency workers, you do not have to set aside benefit spending amongst other liabilities, giving you more money to contribute to building your assets. Mutually agreed payment terms also helps your cashflow. Having an agency take care of the employment process for you will save you time sifting through CVs for a short-term position – Influx also takes care of the payroll for you too.
If your company requires completion of a large order or contract, temporary employees can help ease the stress from your current team. Monotasking has been shown through studies to be the best way to conduct business as it helps employees focus and therefore finish their task better than results from multi-tasking.
Another uncertainty that temporary employees can help you with is working out who would be the right fit for your company before offering a permanent contract. You might decide that your temporary hire adds value to your organisation and wish to transfer those values permanently. They might have fresh, new ideas having worked in other similar establishments that can cause a great boost to your team.
Sick Cover or Maternity Leave
Thinking about taking on a temporary worker does not only have to be to help with increased orders or large projects, it can also be beneficial to use temporary workers for unplanned situations such as short or long-term illness or maternity leave.
Ultimately, building a relationship with a recruitment agency is important as you cannot account for unexpected circumstances. However, when these situations do occur, you can count on Influx to provide you with an excellent candidate as we keep our client relationships top of our priority list.
Employing temporary employees can turn out to be a more positive act than a negative one.
Hopefully we have given you an alternative outlook to outsourcing.
