Bringing on temporary workers is one of the greatest hiring decisions you can make. Across industries, there are intense seasonal workforce demands. With temporary employees, your business has the opportunity to scale up and scale down the workforce with demand. That’s something that just isn’t possible with salaried employees. Having the exact manpower and expertise exactly when you need it is invaluable and can revolutionize business performance overnight.
Further, staffing agencies, like us here are NTG Staffing, typically supply temporary workers to companies. Staffing agencies interview and screen the candidates to determine which fit your needs best. The best staffing agencies are an extension of your HR department and will offer your superior service.
Here are 4 reasons why your business should bring on temporary employees:
1. Control your costs
Perhaps the most appealing benefit of hiring temp workers is saving on overhead. Not only are staffing agencies typically providing benefits, like health benefits and worker’s compensation, they are screening the candidates for you. Additionally, time is your most valuable asset. Your employees no longer have to sift through stacks of resumes and conduct interview after interview, allowing them to spend their time working on other important projects.
2. Temporary staff can help with short-term projects
Demand peaks and valleys are a given in business. With temporary workers, you can navigate workload demand much more efficiently than scaling up your full-time work force. Temporary workers will come in, provide the assistance to complete the job effectively, then exit. After they leave, your business continues to operate as usual!
3. Try Before you Buy
Hiring temporary employees allows your company to see how workers perform before bringing them on full-time. Even then, bringing a temporary worker takes less time than hiring an employee from resume to payroll. You can see which skills temporary workers offer that are more valuable to your company and bring new ideas from other temporary work. Additionally, if temporary workers aren’t a good fit, you can just as easily try someone else.
4. Temporary workers are often specialists
Temporary workers often bring in specialized skill sets that are perfect for your business. They are able to fill gaps in critical production and management situations with little training and help your business avoid failing to meet demand at peak periods. A big reason why this is able to happen is due to the expertise of a staffing agency. Agencies are masters in providing clients with the exact employees they need, saving you time and money.
