5 reasons why you should hire a temporary worker

Here at Harpers, we have always been proud of the services we deliver. Our consultants make sure they take the time to fully understand business and individual needs which are unique to the temporary market. 

Our temporary division provides skilled temporary workers to cover short-term sickness, long-term projects, maternity cover and temporary to permanent placements. Taking a temporary approach to recruitment can help your company to manage budgets without the challenges of recruiting, employing and payrolling a candidate on a permanent basis. 

Below are 5 reasons why should you consider hiring temporary workers: 

1. Flexibility:

Temporary staff offer a great deal of flexibility within the business. Hiring on a temporary, short-term or long-term basis (e.g. to cover specific projects, maternity cover, sickness or busy periods) is a cost-effective solution in comparison to hiring on a permanent basis. 

2. New perspectives:

Fresh eyes within the business can create a new perspective within your company. A temporary worker can bring in different ideas and an original approach to your business. The temporary employee can add value to areas such as current procedures, old habits and company culture. 

3. Immediate start: 

Most temporary workers can start immediately or within 1-2 weeks of their interview. A fast hire can impact the business instantly, positively affecting the productivity of your business. Hiring to cover seasonal demands, maternity cover, sickness or disability leave eliminates the need to hire on a permanent basis. 

4. Liability:

As part of our service, we will tailor a personalised recruitment service to the needs of your business. We will check the worker's Entitlement to Work in the UK and take responsibility for their Agency Worker Regulations, pension contributions, National Insurance payments and holiday allowance. 

5. Temporary to Permanent: 

Hiring on a temporary to permanent basis gives the hirer the chance to 'try before you buy'. By employing this way, you can spot the right kind of talent for the business and prove the candidate's ability. Most Temporary to Permanent opportunities are reviewed after a 12-week basis. 

Our temporary jobs apply to a wide range of B2B or B2C industries, within the sales, customer service, marketing, finance, administrative and many other sectors.
