If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that life can change in a moment. With many businesses still shuttered in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, those that are able to be open are having to carve a whole new path to success. If you’re ready to hire new staff, you might find that a temp-to-hire model is a better fit for your new direction. Here are a few reasons why.
Reasons to Consider a Temp-to-Hire Staffing Model
Though wide-scale vaccinations are expected to bring the pandemic under control in 2021, economic recovery is still unclear. A temp-to-hire model gives you the flexibility you need to determine whether a new position truly makes sense.
You’re going to need an agile, talented, hardworking team to create success in 2021 and beyond. Yet it can be tough to determine during the interview period whether a candidate has everything you are looking for. Under a temp-to-hire model, your new team member will remain an employee of the staffing agency while you evaluate whether he or she is truly right for the position.
Less Hiring Pressure
The temp-to-hire model presents you with fully vetted candidates who are ready to work. You won’t have to worry about such time-consuming processes as background checks and drug screens, verifying eligibility to work, or even adding the candidate to your payroll system. You can hire more quickly, with less pressure on your human resources team.
Checking the “Fit”
The hiring process can be costly, and the last thing you want is for a newly onboarded employee to leave quickly because the position isn’t the right “fit.” With a temp-to-hire model, both you and your new team member can spend some time making sure that the employee meshes with the organization, with absolutely no pressure to make the arrangement permanent until you’re both ready.
If you’re ready to bring on new talent, consider a temp-to-hire model. It can be easier, faster, and less risky than hiring permanent employees, especially while the economy is in an uncertain recovery.
