Hiring new employees offers many opportunities for growth. However, it also takes a lot of time, effort, and money to do so. A good alternative, is to consider hiring temporary employees. A temporary staffing agency can assist you with this. Staffing companies like Trojan Labor can handle all of the difficult aspects of hiring for you.
Here are five reasons why you should consider hiring temporary employees:
1. Improved Productivity
Bringing in some temporary employees can help relieve some of the burden on your full time staff. When a full time employee has too much work on their plate, it can lead to them becoming burnt out.
When employees are burned out they can lose motivation and become overwhelmed. This leads to decreased productivity.
Hiring temporary employees can help to relieve this.
2. Time off and Illness:
When full time employees call in sick at the last minute, a staffing company can provide you with a temporary employee to fill the gaps that open up when an employee is absent.
All you have to do is call them up and and tell them what your needs are. Once you have a relationship with the temporary staffing agency, this process becomes even easier.
3. Savings in Hiring Costs
4. Workers Compensation Savings
When using a temporary staffing company like Trojan Labor you save time and money on workers compensation claims. Temporary staffing companies save you the administrative costs of handling workers compensation claims. For employees that are sporadic or seasonal this is especially true.
Another money saving aspect is a reduced workers compensation deposit. An increase in temporary labor means a decrease in a company’s payroll. This leads to lower workers compensation premiums. With lower premiums, you end up with a lower workers compensation deposit. The savings can make a significant difference for many companies.
With a temporary staffing company, workers compensation insurance is “pay as you go” because it is built into the rate. You do not have to pay any more than what your needs are at the time.
5. Knowledge and Expertise
Staffing agencies have a large amount of knowledge and expertise compared to the human resource department of many small businesses. Because we focus on employment, we are always up to date with all of the latest changes in laws and employment trends.
