Benefits of Temporary Workers

Why should you consider hiring temporary staff and what solutions can they offer your business?

Here at Signature Recruitment, we have almost 15 years of experience in placing excellent, reliable, tried and tested temporary staff within client organisations.

Surprisingly, the attitude around using temporary resources can be quite negative, when in actuality the benefits are both vast and wide-reaching.

As we gear up for what is set to be another spring and summer of growth for many companies, the demand for temporary hires nationwide is soaring.

According to iCIMS’s recent report on temporary hiring, 48% of hiring managers are planning to bring on up to 20% more workers than last year to support, with projected bust periods and project work.

Embracing this surge of manpower at your company can bring numerous advantages, but it also poses its unique challenges. That’s where temporary staff can assist.

Advantages of temporary staff

It is important to first consider how temporary staff can be used to increase team productivity. 

Whether you’re ramping up for a seasonal rush or tackling a special project, covering absence or emergencies, short-term hires offer several key benefits:

1. Flexibility in an unstable economy.

Adapting your team size to fluctuating demand is crucial for smaller companies. Permanent staffing changes can be cumbersome and impact morale. Temporary staff provide the agility needed to navigate sudden turnovers, long-term leaves, and special projects.

2. Access to new kills

Temp workers aren’t just for admin roles. They bring fresh skills and perspectives, enhancing efficiency and innovation. When projects demand expertise beyond your team’s scope, temporary employees inject the necessary talent to propel progress.

3. Cost savings

Temporary hires often prove more cost-effective than permanent ones. With hourly rates and limited benefits, they offer financial flexibility. However, it’s essential to consider the long-term impact on your budget, as extended temporary assignments may surpass permanent hiring costs.

4. Potential for meaningful hires

Evaluating potential permanent hires can be challenging. Temporary employees offer an extended trial period without the commitment. This approach allows you to make informed decisions while mitigating the risks associated with permanent recruitment.

5. Morale boost

Staffing shortages can strain your team, leading to stress and burnout. Supplementing your workforce during peak periods fosters a happier, more productive environment. Maintaining adequate support during busy times ensures your core team remains engaged and motivated.

At Signature Recruitment, we understand the value temporary workers bring to your organisation. We have a long list of immediately available, reference-checked candidates with full RTW clearance, ready to get started straight away. Often our temps have worked within client organisations also, so we can assure you of their reliability and work ethic.

Great talent is out there, but it’s up to you to find it. The above guidelines will hopefully aid you in attracting the right people for your business. Should you have any questions on how to do any of the above points, please get in touch.
