Temp Jobs are growing
Last year saw many industries trending above the national average - IT, Manufacturing and Health Care in particular.
The New Year has ushered in a renewed focus on the temporary workforce continuing on a growth trajectory as a result of business growth, and the increasingly competitive talent market.
In 2017, the demand for temporary labour was strong, with more than half of employers hiring temporary/contract workers, an increase from the previous year. Over 60% aimed to transition some temporary/contract workers into permanent roles.
Employees see it as a great way to improve employability, gain exposure to new skills and develop their career.
So, what’s in it for you?
3 Best Reasons to Hire Temps:
Cost analysis shows very little if no difference between hiring temps and hiring permanent employees. The additional cost benefits associated with hiring a temp can include:
- On-site Temp Worker Management
- No permanent conversion cost after a defined period
- Payroll costs
- Remain Flexible and agile – ready to scale up your business
While the demand for temporary and contract jobs across all industries, company sizes and geographies continues to expand for the foreseeable future, so does the time needed for HR staffing and recruiting activities to support it. Planning, hiring and competing with local employers for candidates can be exhausting.
Today’s employers are increasingly turning to temporary hiring when structuring their workforce, as it affords them the ability to remain flexible and agile in their staffing needs and therefore scale up their businesses with ease. A new product or increase in orders may be a temporary need or it could become a permanent fixture. You can capitalise on this opportunity by creating a panel of prospective employees who will be ready to hit the ground running and help you expand your businesses.
- Test drive candidates – keep the best
Companies oftentimes look to temporary hiring as a vehicle to be able to attract and test drive candidates to better determine which ones are best suited for permanent placement.
