Seasonal Staffing Reduces Excessive Turnover
October 2, 2017 | Staffing Blog
If your business has a difficult time holding on to employees, it is not always your company’s fault. Higher wages elsewhere and the demand for well-trained individuals can make your new-hires attractive to competitors. Unfortunately, you are left holding the bag when it comes to the expense associated with hiring and training. Make things easier on your budget with seasonal staffing.
When you are not sure if you can make a move from full-time, permanent employee search to a seasonal workforce, consider these advantages.
- Students are excellent workers with lots of drive. They are young and want to earn as much money as they can in between classes and semesters. These workers may be the first ones to show up and the last ones to leave. For large projects with a time crunch, they can be excellent.
- Start the recruitment process early and keep your project budget in check. A two-month head start is standard. You catch prospective workers at a time when they are thinking through their seasonal availability and can make a commitment to your company. By planning ahead, you also make it easier on your accountant to allocate the funds needed.
- Test-drive potential full-time employees. There are always some individuals who will impress you with their work ethic, skills, and perfect fit with your company. After the seasonal employment opportunity is over, you might just have found an excellent employee to add to your rolls – without the high likelihood of losing the individual to a competitor.
