Benefits of Temporary Staffing
If you run a business that requires staff to interact with customers there are plenty of benefits in using temporary staff. Temporary staff (aka temp staff, contract staff, temp recruitment) are often used in call centres, contact centres, customer support and other customer service related roles in particular where high flexibility is required to service customer demand.
Whilst not an exhaustive list, there are many benefits for businesses in using temporary staffing solutions including:
- Flexibility - you can quickly scale your business up and down based on customer demand whether its forecasted or unexpected.
- Cost Savings - Insurance, taxes, payroll are typically covered by the temp agency and you can avoid paying costs for recruitment, screening, testing etc as well as reducing overtime rates that you may have had to pay to handle increased volumes.
- Convenience - It's much quicker and easier to hire and manage a temp employee as they are typically managed by the agency.
- Reduced Risk - All the compliance and management is handled by the agency and your not 'stuck' with an employee should your business circumstances change. In many instances, it can also be a good way to 'try before you buy' with the opportunity to transition an employee to permanent status if there is an ongoing requirement and they are a good fit for your business (note the agency may charge a fee for this)
- New ideas and insight - Bringing new people into your business can often bring with it new ideas and perspectives that can add value to your overall business
