Temporary Staffing
Temporary Staffing

In light of its business needs and goals, deciding on what type of staffing is right for the organization is an important decision to make. Temporary staffing refers to fulfilling the organization’s short-term requirements or completing the specific needs which are not a part of the company’s core business operations.

It is advisable to go for temporary staffing for short term requirements for a project. If a firm hires an employee through a staffing services provider on a temporary basis, the entire payroll is borne by the outsourcing firm and hence it turns out to be very cost effective. Temporary staffing also enables a company to leverage the cost difference in salaries for the same skills across different countries.

It also saves the time and efforts of an organization involved in hiring a full time employee. The organization would not need to invest in training the new part-time candidate with a good skill-set match.

Temporary hires are concerned with only meeting the current requirements. It offers the flexibility to make changes if the employee fails to meet the desired role requirements, as there is no firm commitment. Making constant changes to the temporary role may turn out to prove expensive, loss or morale and low productivity. It allows the firm to outsource roles and functions which are necessary but not core to a company’s business strategy and operations.

Many organizations opt for temporary staffing in order to save the expenses of paying benefits and other forms of compensation to their permanent staff. It is advisable for firms to choose the type of staffing strategy sensibly and within the company’s legal limits to avoid getting into legal troubles as the laws many vary from country to country.
