The quality of your staff can make or break your business, so you want only the brightest, most talented workers on your team. However, high-performing employees aren’t always easy to find or affordable to retain on a full-time basis. Many companies have solved this issue by hiring temporary staff ─ offering the best of both worlds by having access to top talent ─ only when needed.
Four Reasons to Hire Temporary Staff
Need to increase the number of workers on your team? Here are four great reasons to consider filling your open positions with temporary employees:
- Quick Hiring Decisions: Sometimes you need someone to fill an open position yesterday. Finding a qualified candidate in a limited amount of time on your own can be a challenge. Many companies end up hiring the first available candidate, instead of waiting to find the most qualified person. Staffing firms can deliver qualified candidates quickly ─ effectively resolving this issue ─ as they maintain a pool of talented professionals ready to step in and get to work when a position matching their skills becomes available.
- Lower Workforce Costs: Hiring temporary workers can help your company cut costs in a number of areas. Costs related to advertising, recruiting, and interviewing will be significantly reduced, as staffing firms streamline these fees into one set rate for everything. Once hired, you won’t have to pay benefits to these workers and most firms even handle payroll and compliance issues, so your HR team can focus on other tasks.
- Greater Flexibility: It doesn’t make sense to hire a permanent employee if you don’t have a lasting need for their services. You can hire temporary employees to do as much or as little work as needed, as their hours can be adjusted according to your work flow. There’s no need to keep someone on your payroll when you don’t have an appropriate workload to justify a full-time hire.
- Less Risk: Hiring a new employee is always a bit of a risk, as you can never truly tell how a person will fit into your company until they’ve started working. When you hire temporary staff, you have the advantage of keeping them on your team for as long or as short of a time period as you like. If someone isn’t a good fit, you won’t find yourself in a dicey situation.
