3 Tips for Hiring Seasonal Staff for the Holiday Season | Allegiance

The end of the year holiday season is one of the busiest shopping events during the entire year. Bringing on additional staff during this time will ensure that your business is not only able to survive the busy season but also flourishes. Potential success during this time largely depends on hiring the right temporary workers. Fortunately, there are three tips that you can use to make sure you select the right seasonal staff:

Consider Employee Referrals

Employee referrals are one of the easiest ways to tap into a professional network. If your employees already know of potential hires that would be a good fit for the job, then this saves you the time of trying to source seasonal staff on your own.

Reach Out to Former Seasonal Employees

The biggest difficulty businesses run into when hiring seasonal staff is time. It can be difficult to train a new hire within a short period of time. Therefore, consider reaching out to former seasonal staff members. Hiring someone who is already familiar with your business processes makes it easier to train them within a short time frame.

Plan Out your Hiring Process

When it comes seasonal hiring planning is everything. If you hire too soon, then you may not have enough work for your temporary workers. On the other hand, if you hire too late, then you risk limiting the range of employees you have access to since more experienced candidates may be off the market.
