It’s not difficult to find temporary staff members to fill the odd role in a short term project. Guaranteeing the quality of these temporary staffers, though, is another matter entirely. So, when you do find a temporary staff member who gets the job done professionally and fits right in on your team, it’s worth rewarding their efforts.
Read on to find out how to make sure your quality temporary staff are keen to come back next time you call!
Four ways to keep quality temporary staff
Quality staff help your business run smoothly, keep clients content and save you time and money by working efficiently. If you identify a temporary staff member who fits the bill, there are several ways you can ensure they feel as satisfied by their work experience as you do.
Treat your temporary staff like your full-time staff
The best way to get the most out of an employee is to ensure that they feel engaged and part of the team. From day one, ensure your temps are treated with the same respect as your full-time staff and are encouraged to contribute ideas and suggestions to the team. They may just bring a fresh perspective to ongoing workplace challenges.
Provide the same benefits that you do for full-time staff
Make sure you treat your temporary staff to the same benefits as the rest of the team. They’ll be more likely to make a productive contribution, and feel confident about returning for future projects.
Provide an adequate work station and tools
For temporary staff to perform at their best, they need access to the same range of tools as a permanent staff member. Whether it’s site equipment, computers or just a clear desk or workbench, make sure your temporary staff have the space and equipment they need to be productive.
Let your labour hire agency know that you value your staff
Let your labour hire firm know how much you like working with this temporary staff member. It will give your employee a boost and ensure that the agency can prioritise that staff member next time you need additional staff. Praising the staff member and making the agency aware of the employee’s worth to your business can help build a mutually beneficial long term relationship.
Temporary staffing can be a gamble, so when you find a great temporary employee, let them know how much you value them. Quality temporary staffing is the key to keeping productivity high no matter what kinds of changes or challenges your business is facing.
