Most organizations can use extra help to handle a surge in business or a seasonal bump, but find it challenging to ramp up and hire in these situations. In other cases, good staff will need to step away for a period, and a temporary replacement is needed. In these and other cases, a staffing agency can provide the needed employees. Here are some of the benefits that you can expect if you turn to an agency in such situations:
Improved Productivity Yes, your regular employees could possibly help handle your work overload. Temporary employees can alleviate the risks of burnout on the part of your permanent people, helping avoid costly mistakes, the effects of lower morale, and reduced productivity which can occur with overburdened workers. Bring on temporary staff and your permanent employees can continue to focus on their priorities and maintain their productivity.
Try Before You Buy With an agency temp, you can try out a potential permanent staffer before bringing them on as permanent staff.
Decreased Costs All temporary staff costs are the responsibility of the agency, which can reduce your overall HR administrative and payroll overhead costs. Even more, you avoid the direct overtime costs for permanent people who would have had to step in to handle the increased demand. You also avoid the indirect costs of mistakes by overwhelmed permanent staff.
Avoid Unemployment Claims
Because your temps are employees of the agency, you do not have to be concerned with the effects of part-time, temporary workers filing for unemployment when their services are no longer needed. You not only avoid the direct costs but also the indirect costs that will occur if your administrative staff are spending time dealing with state labor department people. Increased Flexibility
Agency-sourced temporary staff provides your business with an ability and the agility to flex its human resources based on changing needs. Whether it's filling in for a staffer on maternity leave, providing that extra few hours a week you need, or bringing in a full time person for a time, you can meet the situation easily by drawing on your staffing agency.
