Today, the global workforce market is more dynamic than ever, and that dynamo shows no sign of slowing.
One of the outcomes of this diverse employer landscape is that businesses require more flexible workforce solutions. The types of work these individuals and teams provide and length of time they’ll be needed can vary dramatically. That, coupled with the associated management requirements, can create a large burden on a business.
The increasingly frequent requirement to hire and manage temporary staff can seem like a daunting prospect, as there is such a high level of perceived risk.
The first concern is quality and fit; how do you find and QA the people you need in a rapidly changing landscape? Getting it wrong can have a domino effect on a business’s product or service – potentially damaging reputation, client relationships or ability to grow.
Second is the hiring process itself, which can become very costly. Onboarding, training and upskilling contingent staff, only for them to produce less than ideal output (or leave!) might not be worth the effort.
Thirdly, HR managers need to carefully monitor the volume and nature of work across temporary or non-permanent employees. You can easily find you’ve accidentally hired a full time employee or miss essential checks that land a company in hot regulatory water very quickly!
