Hiring Seasonal Workers

If your staff needs are seasonal — for example, you need extra workers during the summer or during multiple projects — then temporary employees could be the answer to your problem.

With temp agencies now offering specialized employees, construction companies have learned that they don’t have to settle for low skilled or bad matches. In addition to pre-screened individuals, temp agencies offer companies a slew of other benefits. For example, they help keep your overhead low. For another, they save you time and money on recruiting efforts. You don’t have to find, interview or relocate workers. Also, the cost of health and unemployment benefits, workers’ compensation insurance, vacation time and other benefits do not come out of your budget since many temp agencies provide these resources to their staff.

How do you find the temp agency that best suits your needs? Here are a few questions to consider:

  • Do you have insurance?
  • Do you check of the progress of your temp workers?
  • How do you recruit your temp workers?
  • Should a temp staff not work out, does the firm offer an y guarantees? Look for a firm that can provide a qualified temp right away.
  • What type of work do your staff specialize in?
Deciding what your expected needs are also very important. While many companies bring on temporary workers just temporarily, some may decide that they would like to hire the worker on full time and resort to the temp-to-perm program. This allows the company to decide based on their needs and their evaluation of the candidates performance on whether they want to hire full time.
