Reasons Your Company Needs Temp Staff During Christmas

temp staffThe Busy Christmas Season

Why hire temp staff during busy periods like Christmas? Well, we are all aware that hotels and hospitals alike don’t get to close their doors over the holiday season, in fact it’s one of their busiest periods. There is a higher demand for staff and in turn the need for temp staff increases. Permanent employees may want to take holidays at Christmas time. Staff are more prone to getting sick due to the colder weather. These circumstances mean they can’t work as much over the Christmas season. This can leave a company short-staffed. They end up over-working the smaller number of employees they have left. This is when temp staff become an option and are of great benefit. Experienced temp staff are essential. Rather than just filling a temp position as quick as you can, take time to research the agency you’re hiring temps from. If they are experienced and have a good work ethic, you and your team will appreciate them much more.

Time For Temps

Many different scenarios result in a company being understaffed, especially last minute. A chef-de-partie calls in sick on the morning of a banqueting event… Call for a temp chef. A catering assistant in a hospital has to leave for 2 weeks to see their family as they aren’t from Ireland… Call for a temp catering assistant. A cleaner who doesn’t live close to work can’t come in due to bad weather conditions… call for a temp cleaner. Temps provide you with last minute cover to prevent any disruption to the working day.

Temp Staff Vs Permanent Staff

While the divide between permanent and temp staff can be difficult, hiring short-term employees can also help the overall workplace mood.  If permanent employees are forced to work long hours; double shifts, weekends and nights, morale can quickly decrease. Employees can become stressed, frustrated and even burn-out. That’s why offering extra help during Christmas ensures your core team stays happy and remains productive. Smaller companies have to be able to adapt their team during busy periods, but hiring permanent staff can be time-consuming and expensive. Temp staff can provide a quick fix for unexpected events, long-term leaves, and special projects.
