Using Seasonal Staffing to Your Advantage
March 29, 2016 | Staffing Blog
When discussing seasonal staffing, most folks think about the hospitality sector. The Star Beacon details the staffing needs of Ohio’s Ashtabula County tourism industry. In the past, employers relied on high school and college labor to fill vacant posts during the busy season. Yet early back-to-school dates make this no longer feasible. Now, this industry has to look elsewhere to fill the positions.
You do not have to be in the hospitality industry to know that seasonal staffing fluctuations make consistent work output more difficult. For this reason, more and more companies are partnering with staffing firms that provide job candidates for the business. Winning tactics turn your staffing needs into opportunities.
- Cut down on turnover. Employing vetted seasonal labor lightens the load of your full-time employees. This, in turn, may reduce job dissatisfaction and subsequent attrition.
- Maintain output quality. A staffing agency that focuses on candidate quality and skill verification will send you workers that hit the ground running. Whether you need forklift drivers, production workers or electronic technicians, entrusting your staffing needs to an agency that sends you trained and certificated workers, if needed, is a plus.
- Hire new staff members. When some of your seasonal staffers work out exceptionally well, hiring them full-time is a bonus. Of course, this only happens when your agency sends you credentialed, trained or otherwise skilled seasonal staffers to start.
