When Temporary Staffing Makes More Sense Than Permanent Hiring


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.

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.

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.

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

You need flexibility.

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.

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.
