The benefits of hiring temporary staff

Starting a business is one of the most exciting things you can do, however it’s no surprise that it can also be the most challenging. There are so many things to think about when running a business that many of us look for ways to make things simpler. Recent studies have shown that small to medium sized businesses find it difficult to find and recruit staff. Increasing your staff is often one of the key ways you can grow, more staff equals higher output, but in such a competitive environment finding the right person for the job is rather difficult.

On top of this most businesses will also have fluctuating staffing needs throughout the year, often being subject to peaks and troughs depending on the season. There is however a solution, which can suit businesses of all sizes, when it comes to staff requirements.

Temporary recruitment allows businesses to recruit staff as and when they need them. There are many benefits to using recruitment agencies to satisfy their recruitment needs.

Here are our top 5 reasons why hiring temporary staff can benefit businesses:

  1. Flexibility – you have the ability to adjust your staff count based on changes in the economy and demands on your business. When your business ramps up and you need additional resource you can hire temporary staff to cover the increased demand.
  2. Saves you money – using a recruitment agency takes the hassle out of recruiting staff. Hirestaff will take care of all payments, including PAYE and holiday pay for the temps, leaving you to take care of your business.
  3. Trial people with little risk – before committing to taking a permanent member of staff, you have the ability to use temporary staff to trial them before committing to them long term
  4. Saves you time – using a recruitment agency to find staff will mean you can focus on your business instead of advertising the job, teeing up interviews and meeting potential candidates
