Top Tips for Hiring

Hiring permanent or temporary employees can be a necessary undertaking at different stages of a business’s life-cycle. Achieving the right balance, when hiring new employees, is an important element for any organisation. It is crucial for the employer, existing staff members and the new recruit. Consideration must be given to the overall wellbeing and sound structure of any organisation at this stage of planning. Covering staff holidays, absenteeism or paternal leave are some of the reasons that managers need to consider when recruiting temporary or permanent staff. If a chef or nurse take leave for a few days or weeks, hiring temps is necessary to ensure that operations run smoothly.

Some important questions to ask when considering hiring temporary or permanent staff to any organisation include:

  1. What can this potential employee bring to our organisation?
  2. Are they a good-fit to our values and current working structure?
  3. Are they passionate about what we do?
  4. Do they aspire to add value the vision that we aspire to?
  5. Are they motivated to bring their best?
  6. Can they bring improvements to our current business model?
  7. Are they flexible enough to meet potential changes that may enfold due to micro or macro changes in the environment?

Equally prospective employees can ask these questions and share what they can offer to the organisation. These answers can offer assurance to management. It also can provide insights to employees, if they are a right-fit for the organisation.

Our society has changed, for the better, in that recruitment policies must include consideration for diversity, inclusivity and equality. All provide opportunity in many ways including; changing the dynamics of the office environment to one that can be strengthened positively, where innovative ideas are shared and fresh and exciting ideas to improve the current business model are explored. There can even be opportunity for international expansion, increased support to local community projects and ensuring that the organisation complies with updated macro policies.

While change is inevitable for most organisations, if embraced in an accepting and innovative approach, there may be opportunity to increase the sustainability of the company and its profit margins. Equally, current employees can benefit from the introduction and input of temporary and permanent employees.

Good management will ensure that planning process for hiring new employees will ultimately compliment and improve the resources that are currently operating. It goes without saying that continual measurement and adapting current recruitment systems, where necessary, is vital to ensure that the right balance is achieved successfully, and that there is minimal impact to the current operating systems.

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.
