Happy new year to everyone reading this, may 2021 bring health and happiness.
The COVID-19 era has proved to be a catalyst for business change and will no doubt provide great challenges and opportunities moving forward. Recruitment strategy for businesses in 2021 will require some thought. Organisations may look to the hiring of temp employees to support greater flexibility.
There are a number of reasons why it’s sensible to consider the recruitment of a temp employee.
It gives your company access to new skills.
Temporary staff can bring new skills and perspectives to a job this can therefore help improve effectiveness or simplify processes. If a new project requires skills outside of your team’s area of expertise, a temporary employee can provide that new talent to keep the project moving.
It provides flexibility in an unstable economy.
Companies have to be able to adjust their team during busy or low periods but hiring and firing permanent staff can be very detrimental to morale, time-consuming and costly. Being able to bring on more workers or scale back the workforce to respond to the changes of demand is highly advantageous to business owners. Temporary staff can also provide a quick fix for sudden turnover, long-term leave, special projects, and employee absences due to illness, maternity, or sudden departure.
It lets your business evaluate a worker.
When a vacancy appears, management normally need someone that is fantastic and in most cases need someone NOW, but getting the balance between finding a great employee and immediately, can be challenging.

Furthermore, depending on your evaluation, Temp to Perm could be an option. You can employ a temp for a designated short term and if desired, offer a full-time position to a worker who suits your business. Some businesses employ temporary workers as an excellent and cost-efficient way to recruit and test the abilities of new workers before signing them on full-time. Other companies will repeatedly use the services of a temp worker who has proven to be a company asset.
The result of employing temp staff may provide a more efficient workplace, greater flexibility, and better opportunities for both employers and employees.
