Navigating the Current Landscape: Admin and Office Support Recruitment in Today’s Climate
27th November 2023
In the world of Recruitment, it wouldn’t be a new year without a new team! Temporary workers can help you to build up that brand new workforce and some of your new hires may even become permanent. Let’s take a brief overview of some of the benefits of temporary staff for your business…
First of all, the new year incentivises people. Vacancies pop up all the time after new year holiday periods, and your team members may have their eye on a shiny new problem. New temporary staff may be especially raring to go and be even more determined to end up as a permanent employee of yours, driven by their motivation to succeed in their new job. They may simply perform better.
Temporary workers can also help you to plug those gaps. When you have spikes in business, it’s typical for a normal team to become overwhelmed, but that can also lead to employees resigning due to the pressure. Temp workers who are just a phone call away are a vital part of handling business peaks, especially in traditional seasonal spikes such as Christmas. To cover workers who are on temporary leave, such as maternity or compassionate leave, temporary workers make excellent cover and help to ease the workload of the rest of your employees, leading to a happier team all around.
Temp workers are also perfect for trying before you buy! You may hire someone only to find out, too late, that they’re not the best fit for your business – maybe their style of working just doesn’t mesh with the way you run your company, or maybe they clash badly with one or more of your existing team, but you can’t really let them go now that the contract is signed. The solution here is temp workers. If they don’t fit in well, you can rest assured knowing that they won’t be around for long. On the other hand, if they’re a good fit, then great – you trialled them without having to promise a job at the end, so now you’re hiring someone that you already know is a fabulous fit for your company and who you want to have working for you. Plus, if the person you’ve hired for temporary work is really not working out, you don’t have to worry about finding someone to replace them – your recruitment consultant will handle all that for you.
Which brings us to our final benefit for temp workers: the recruiter themselves. They will handle it all for you – background checks, interviews, pay, and you will save a lot of time by outsourcing to the expert instead. Your recruitment agency will also take care of exit interviews and tie up all loose ends, so choosing temporary staff recruitment couldn’t be any easier.
