All companies experience different staffing needs from time to time, especially as the seasons change. Depending on your business or industry, you may need to adjust your staffing levels during the summer months and add more workers to your team.
As you explore your summer staffing options, here are some of the benefits of working with a staffing agency to meet your summer workforce needs.
Staffing Solutions Reduce Hiring Costs
As the seasons quickly change, seasonal needs can often arise suddenly – leaving your internal team with little time to prepare. By using a staffing agency, you can significantly reduce time and money associated with hiring seasonal workers. This is because a staffing partner will handle all the tasks associated with hiring seasonal talent, including developing effective job descriptions; facilitating a comprehensive onboarding program; and conducting regular employee performance reviews. Having a staffing agency take on these responsibilities will allow you to recruit summer workers without having to use valuable time and resources for the hiring process.
Gain Direct Access to Qualified Candidates
While it may be easy to find seasonal workers on the surface, it’s not as easy to find qualified seasonal workers. Having a staffing partnership gives you access to a talented pool of seasonal candidates, alleviating your team from having to find candidates through traditional methods (such as job boards and career fairs). Developing an active pipeline of qualified temps through your staffing partner can be one of the most impactful ways to build your seasonal workforce without having to constantly start from scratch.
Identify Best-Fit Candidates to Reduce Turnover
Before investing in summer workers, it’s important to carefully vet candidates not only for their skills, but their professionalism and reliability. A staffing agency will be committed to finding only the best seasonal employees for your team, so you don’t have employees quitting quickly during one of your busiest times of year. Recruiting the right talent the first time around will save your company the hassle of having to hire new people at the last minute, helping you retain your workers for the duration of the summer season.
Believe it or not, preparing for your seasonal staffing needs can be a breeze when working with a trusted staffing partner. If you’re ready to take this next step for your organization, get in touch with Durham Staffing, a temporary employment agency based in Buffalo, NY.
