The Benefits of Using a Temp-to-Hire Program
Due to the fluctuating staffing needs of many companies, temporary staffing can be quite useful. Temporary staffing can be beneficial for companies that have busy periods that rise and fall throughout the year. However, temporary staffing can also be helpful when used as part of a temp-to-hire program. Temp-to-hire programs can enable companies to bring on temporary employees with the possibility of hiring an employee full-time. There are a few unique benefits this approach brings that differentiate it from traditional full-time hiring practices. Read on to discover the best advantages a temp-to-hire program provides.
The Ability to Adjust Your Staff Based on Workload
If you have a sudden need for more staff due to particular project demands, working with a staffing agency to bring on temporary employees can quickly provide you with new staff. If you have a temporary employee that stands out, you have a chance to see their work in practice before bringing them on to the team full-time. If your company needs to bring on another full-time member, or you need to replace a skilled full-time staffer quickly, you already know of a few candidates who can fit in with the team.
Flexibility for Employees and Employers
In certain industries, including warehousing and manufacturing, many employees are looking for temporary work. As the needs for workers fluctuate with each new project, using temporary staff is the most efficient way to meet staffing needs while providing employees with the flexibility they may desire. If an employee should decide that they want to stay with your company or industry, they can work with the staffing agency to find a permanent position. If you make it known to the staffing agency that you’re interested in temp-to-hire employees, they may be able to facilitate that transition.
The Opportunity to Evaluate Workers for Future Assignments
When you bring on temporary workers, you have a chance to see their skills and work ethic in action. This is the best part of using a temp-to-hire program, as you get to see employees at work before potentially bringing them on full time. If some temporary workers are not ideal for long-term positions in the company, you can simply let them leave once their employment period has ended.
A Temp-to-Hire Program Saves You Time and Money
If you know you only need extra help for a short period, the most cost-efficient route is to hire someone temporarily. When using a staffing agency, you additionally avoid bearing the responsibility of recruiting, background checks, hiring, payroll, and all of the paperwork that goes with it.
If you turn your temporary hiring into a temp-to-hire situation, you also save money. Rather than hiring a full-time employee from the jump and spending time on their paperwork and onboarding, only for that employee to falter once at work, you can hire a temp you trust. After seeing a temp worker in action, you can bring them onto your team and know that any time or expense spent on their hiring will be well worth it.
