The Benefits of Temporary Workers
Have you got plans to hire a temp? For maternity cover, sickness cover, project work, or just to help out over a busy period. We provide temporary staff at all levels from self-employed people with their own limited companies through to day-rate interims or hourly rate PAYE temps.
But what are the benefits of taking on temporary resource?
In business we know that time is critical and that’s one of the benefits when hiring a temporary candidate as temps and interim professionals are traditionally quick hires, who can have an immediate impact on your business. When working with Cherry Professional we offer you the opportunity to conduct working interviews to ensure that the candidate is a cultural fit and has the experience that you need.
Temporary workers with specific skill sets, for example, specific system and process skills, can have a positive effect on your business, they can come in and deliver a project efficiently and then move on.
Niche interim professionals with a unique skill set can offer a speedy and cost effective solution to any problem in your business from change management to system implementation.
The average time to fill a permanent vacancy is seven weeks, so what if you need someone now? A temporary worker can start immediately leaving you with piece of mind and time to find, interview and hire a permanent employee for the role. If a gap in your team is unforeseen you may well need a temp to ensure its ‘business as usual’ and there is no loss of productivity.
Hiring a temp is a great way to ‘try before you buy’. So if you feel the temp in your business could be a permanent member of staff, you already know they can do the job, fit in with the team and deliver results. Remember though, some people choose to be temps for a reason (such as flexibility) and they may turn your offer down.
