Many companies these days are struggling to do more with less. Understaffing is a chronic problem, and one with expensive consequences. When you don’t have enough staff for your workload, you often have to pay out overtime, not to mention you end up with overworked, exhausted employees, which can lead to a higher turnover rate and high recruiting costs. You don’t want your employees to struggle to get things done, juggle multiple tasks, or have to drop projects to tend to more urgent matters. What’s the solution to all these problems? Strategic staffing. Here are some of the benefits for your company:
Keep your staffing levels even.
If your company deals with seasonal spikes in productivity, it can be difficult to find the right balance so that you have enough manpower while you’re busyand you aren’t paying people to sit around doing nothing when business slows down. Strategic staffing fixes this with temporary workers who come in for the busy times with the understanding that they don’t have a permanent position with you. If you work with the right staffing firm, you may even be able to bring back temporary workers from a previous project and save money training and orienting them.
Hire experts to get the job done.
Sometimes you may need specialized workers for a short term task like setting up a database of customer information. Rather than finding a person and hiring them full-time, you can work with a staffing specialist to hire someone just long enough to get the job done. Hiring specialty employees as contract workers saves your company a great deal of money in the long run.
Protect your company.
There are many legal issues when it comes to hiring and recruiting. If you hire a bad employee through a staffing service—something that’s less likely when you partner with an expert—you can easily replace them without any legal hassles like wrongful termination suits. A staffing partner also deals with the tax issues that come with having a temporary employee, and takes care of the financial obligations such as payroll and government reporting so that you don’t have to.
