Five reasons why you may want to consider adding temporary workers to your staff during the holiday season
The holidays are almost here – and for some, this is a time to enjoy a slower pace of work. For others, it can be the busiest time of year.
Hiring temporary or contract employees during the holidays means you can complete important projects before the end of the year, gear up for your busy season, give your employees time off to spend with their families, save money on overtime, and test out new employees before hiring them on a permanent basis. We’ve listed five reasons why you should consider hiring contact employees during the holidays.
1 – Project Focused
With a new year on the horizon, now is the time to dig in and get your projects done. Why not start the new year on a fresh note with all of the projects you’ve had hanging over your head all year finally completed? Adding to your workforce now on a contract or project-basis can help you accomplish your goals, without putting a burden on your current employees or taking away from other important projects.
2- Fast hires, ready to work.
From managing job postings to conducting multiple rounds of interviews and everything in between, hiring new employees is time consuming and requires a big commitment. Instead, you can rely on a staffing agency to search for the perfect permanent, contract, or temporary candidates for you quickly – so you can return your focus to your business.
Slate works with top candidates from all backgrounds, including IT, Accounting, Financial Services, Marketing, and more. When you request talent from Slate, you have access to pre-screened, high-quality candidates at your fingertips.
3- Scalable workforce
When you hire temporary employees, you have the freedom and flexibility to augment your staff as needed. As you head into your busy season, you may realize that it does not make sense to hire full-time employees. You can explore temporary staffing options to get through your busiest times and stay productive.
4- Skip the overtime
When you work with temporary, contract or seasonal employees through a staffing agency, you can get the same work (or more!) done for less. Adding to your team during your busy season means that you don’t have to pay your current employees overtime. This also allows your loyal employees to take their hard-earned paid time off and enjoy the holiday season a bit more. This is sure to boost team morale, happiness, and productivity. In the new year, your team will be refreshed and ready to get back to work to accomplish your goals for 2023!
