According to the American Staffing Association, 16 million temporary employees are hired through staffing firms each year. It’s no surprise, then, that 2% of all American jobs are filled by temporary staff. Temporary staff supplement a company’s permanent workforce under a contract for a fixed period of time or for a specific project. While “temporary” conjures an image of a few days to a few weeks, some staffing assignments can run as long as 18 months.
These flexible arrangements allow you to adapt to changes in workload and bring in staff immediately when necessary, including during peak times or for medical/maternity leave coverage. Employers can also benefit from avoiding not only the recruiting and onboarding/offboarding expense but also the additional burden of benefits and other incentives.
