When Temporary Staffing Makes More Sense Than Permanent Hiring

When you think of hiring, temporary staffing may not come to mind. But as an employer attempting to maximize your bottom line, minimize risk, and meet demand, maybe it should. There are many situations where temporary staffing makes more sense than permanent hiring. Take a look and see if any of these situations sound like your business!

Your human resources department is short-staffed or nonexistent.

Because firms like LaborWorks find the workers, handle the paperwork, and provide payment, it takes stress and strain off your human resources department. This relief is multiplied for smaller companies that may not have a dedicated human resources manager or team.

Your business is on a tight budget.

Did you know that according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average direct cost for a new employee is a whopping $57,967.88 including basic wages, benefits, and taxes? Add in recruiting and advertising costs, background screening, and drug testing, and that number grows. Temporary staffing removes much of this cost and burden.

You want to try out several workers before permanently hiring.

Temporary staffing allows you to “try before you buy”. Perhaps you’ve had trouble hiring in the past, need an individual with unique skills, or simply want to see if a permanent hire would make sense. In any case, we can place various individuals in the role until you select the one that would make the most sense for a fulltime, permanent role. It’s a great way to confidently hire the best workers!

You need flexibility.

Seasonal fluctuations, vacations, and maternity or medical leave can leave you scrambling for additional staff. Temporary staffing allows you to fill these gaps so that work can continue without a hitch. Staff up during busy seasons or when your permanent employees are on leave, and staff down during slow times.

There are so many reasons why temporary staffing makes sense. Lower your stress, take work off your plate, and get quality workers by working with LaborWorks.
