In the rising gig economy, demand for outstanding temporary employees continues to grow across a wide range of industries. Temporary staffing is now more than ever an added value for a company that needs flexibility and reactivity to reply to the market’s ever-changing demand.
Temporary staffing service – popularly known as Temp Staffing service – is getting more popular as one of the strategic staffing options in Singapore. As with all organisations, business and sale cycles are inevitable. The increase in demand follows suit a corresponding rise in the resources needed, particularly in terms of staffing talents. While the obvious solution would be to simply hire more people, it may not be that straightforward as the increase in demand is fluctuating, and the company’s current structure may not be ready to accommodate a sudden expansion in its workforce. With Temporary Staffing, it provides a pragmatic and efficient solution.
Temporary Staffing is a form of strategic arrangement that can provide organisations with needed help during a spike in demand, staffing shortages, or the absence of regular employees, without investing additional effort, time, and long-term commitment of hiring new staff. The duration of Temporary Staffing depends on the work assignments or projects of the company. It typically lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
There is a wide range of scenarios and benefits in which companies leverage on Temporary Staffing.
Especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, economic uncertainty drives businesses to switch to Temporary Staffing as a solution that is cost-effective and flexible in managing their human resources.
No matter which industry you are in, seasonal demands are ineluctable, which would lead to either a temporary spike in staffing or a short-term dip in labour. Other situations such as production schedules, staff’s absence, and shortage of hiring headcount would also use the help of Temporary Staffing.
More companies now are turning to Temporary Staffing as a means to “test” the suitability and capability of employees before hiring them permanently. Besides, our staffing consultants will carry out verification processes for thorough examination of a potential employee’s credentials. As such, these reduce the chance of bad hires.
Temporary staffing allows companies to enjoy a certain level of cost-saving such as the reduction in cost of hiring, savings on employee benefits costs, and training costs. With flexible control of resources, companies are able to closely manage their spending and pay only for the required work.
