Temporary work has grown at most than triple the rate that permanent employment has since the recession began some years ago (14.2% versus 3.8%), and three out of four customers of temp staffing agencies rate the productivity and quality of work in temporary employees to be as good or better than employees they have in house. Temporary staffers made up more than thirteen percent of the Canadian workforce in 2012, and the market continues to grow. If you are a company looking for strategic staffing solutions, take a look at some of the advantages that temp staffing agencies offer their clients!
Temp staffing agencies offer a multitude of benefits, from allowing your and your employees to focus on the regular business while they screen potential employees to conducting advertising for the position appropriately to finding a suitable employee to substitute for an employee on sick, maternity, or personal leave. The employees at temp staffing agencies are experienced professionals in the area of human resources management, other personnel issues, and workplace management, and they have knowledge of and experience in many relevant areas. Most of these temp staffing agencies are also willing to help you find an employee by utilizing a “temp to hire” program, so that you can ensure that the employee will be productive in your company. These programs are useful for a number of reasons. You can get a feel for how the employee relates to the other employees, observe their productivity and proclivities, and do so without making the commitment of a permanent hire.
More than forty percent of Canadian executives say that they have difficulty finding qualified employees, which are imperative to workplace safety and efficiency. Temp staffing agencies can help you to find those employees without having to run yourself ragged! By outsourcing these tasks, you allow yourself the time to do your usual work and not be overwhelmed.
