Part-time and Temporary employees allow you to staff exactly according to your company’s needs, and weather the rest of the storm that is 2020. It enables your business to adjust more easily and quickly to workload fluctuations and lets you evaluate a worker without commitment.
Temp and part-time employees offer a significant cost savings over full-time employees, in wages, taxes, and benefits. Plus when you use professional placement, we become the temp worker’s employer (not you!) and we are responsible for recruiting, screening, testing and hiring workers; payroll expenses and paperwork; payroll and withholding taxes; unemployment and workers’ compensation insurance—a big releif for you.
Expanded pool of candidates
When you consider part-time employees, you’re opening the door to a talent pool you may have overlooked otherwise like those re-entering the workforce, or retiring workers who are not quite ready to stop working. Today, temporary workers increasingly include highly skilled individuals with a wide range of educational backgrounds and work experience. These individuals can tackle critical one-time projects that are limited in time and scope.
Productivity or quality could suffer because part time employees may not be able to see a project through to completion, or the employee was not trained well enough for the position or task. In some cases, the company’s policies or mission aren’t communicated well enough. Traning and communicating with the employee takes time and effort.
Employees may be less invested in your company
There’s always the chance that part-time workers or temp workers won’t be as committed or loyal to the company perhaps because they don’t receive benefits, or because they don’t feel as valued as their full-time coworkers.
Fortunately, if you’re gravitating toward adding part-time employees or temp workers to your workforce, you can easily manage the downside risk.
The world of work continues to evolve, especially in the wake of COVID-19, with both companies and workers seeking flexibility. Hiring a mix of temp, part-time, and full-time employees may be a smart solution, and one most companies can achieve with a little extra effort. The result is a more efficient workplace, a more flexible job market, and greater opportunities for both employers and employees.
