Should Your Company Consider Contract Staffing?

Posted by Hiregy Staff on Sep 26, 2016 11:36:05 AM

Contract staffing can be an effective way for companies in Tampa and Orlando to reduce expenses and minimize the risks associated with making new hires. But are flexible contract staffing options right for your business? Read more to find out.


Your hiring needs vary by season.
Many companies manage seasonal trends that leave them with specific staffing needs during the year.  For example, health insurance companies often manage open enrollment periods during a specific time of year. This can increase the call volume they need to manage at customer support centers. Temporary employees can be an excellent way to manage seasonal staffing needs like these. 

You struggle to balance employee and client needs.  
Many companies need extra support during busy times, but also want to avoid burning out team members with overtime hours.  For example, businesses that operate in popular tourist areas experience a boost in business during family vacation time. By supplementing full-time staff with contract hires, they can keep employees happy while ensuring that customers have an exceptional experience.

You need to control risk. 
Flex staffing lets you test your company’s need for a new hire. If it turns out that you have enough work to keep your contract team busy, you can bring them on full-time. If not, you can end the contract without worrying about severance and/or unemployment claims.

You want to try before you buy. 
Some positions require candidates to have a specific blend of skills to be successful.  While a Tampa or Orlando staffing agency can help you assess a job prospect’s skills thoroughly, nothing replaces seeing a potential team member in action. Contract-to-hire is a great way to find someone who is a good fit with your business while maintaining flexibility.
