For many businesses, there are certain times of the year when things get much busier. Of course, for any business, a busy time is good, but only if you have the ability to handle that increased workload. If you don’t, the busy period may have many unintended effects, including overtime, stressed employees, and possibly even errors creeping in that dissatisfy clients and customers as you struggle with a workload you are unable to handle.
In cases where you have a busy season, one great alternative to simply “bracing for the worst” is to use seasonal staffing agencies to help fill out the roster. Seasonal employment can be a flexible and efficient solution that helps your company a variety of different ways.
When you have your employees work long past official hours, you end up paying more. If you want to avoid overworking your permanent employees and paying the overtime that comes with it, seasonal employment can definitely help in this regard.
With more people getting work done during the day, there’s no longer any need to keep your permanent staff on the job any longer than they need to be. A company that always finds itself needing to do work after hours is a company that needs help!
When you bring on new employees, two things can’t be avoided, training those employees and doing the required paperwork. The administration aspect can involve entry into human resources, handling payroll and other necessary activities, but with seasonal staffing agencies, the agency itself can manage the bulk of these duties. You just have to concentrate on introducing the new hires to what they need to do while enjoying more simplified, streamlined administration because the agency handles the rest.
Avoid Lengthy Hiring Time
When you’re looking for the right new permanent employee, you need to take all the usual security precautions, as well as make sure that this new person will be a good fit for the corporate culture you have at your company. With seasonal employment, it’s the staffing agency that does the work, sorting through potential candidates based on security, aptitude and the other requirements you may have. You just give your needs to the agency, and let them do the hard work of finding the right person for the jobs you have available.
When you need to add more workers, or even reduce the workers available, it’s much easier to do so with a seasonal workforce. This isn’t the same as extensive hiring and then going through a dismissal or lay off process. You simply add or subtract staff as required with the staffing agency, and let them handle the rest. It’s a much more efficient way to handle the numbers you need during the season keeping your downtime and paperwork to a minimum.
