When most people think of temporary staff over the festive period, they think of retail sales, but retail isn’t the only industry impacted by the summer rush. Temporary work spikes over the holiday period can happen in almost all industries and injecting your workforce with some casual staff over this time might be the right solution to keep your workplace productive. So how do you know if you need a holiday temp?

4 SIGNS YOU NEED A HOLIDAY TEMP OR CASUAL STAFF                                                                                                                                                                                         
  1. Overtime is up and morale is low

This time of year can be a stressful time for most people, so if you require a lot of overtime hours over this period it’s important to keep an eye on your staff and see how they’re handling it. If the amount of overtime is affecting staff morale, it’s time to bring in some temporary or casual workers. Helping permanent staff find balance in their work and personal lives – especially during seasonal spikes can lead to a loyal and committed workforce.

  1. Deadlines are looming

While things quieten down for some workplaces over the holidays, there are plenty of businesses where everything ramps up. Maybe the deadlines are the result of the usual spike in demand at this time of year, or maybe you’ve just got a few more clients or projects piling up. Either way, if you’ve got a bunch of deadlines to meet and no idea how to meet them, bringing in some casual labour or a skilled temp professional can help.

  1. Annual leave requests are piling up

It’s easy to get shorthanded over the holidays, most people like to take a little time off to be with their families at this time of year and many of us have to travel to do that. With so many people requesting leave you might find yourself wondering how you’ll be able to cover everything that needs to get done. If this sounds like you then, a temp or casual staff member can help. Not just with filling the gaps, but with easing the pressure on your remaining workers.

  1. Work is suffering

When even your top talent is struggling to produce their usual high standard, it’s a sign that work is being rushed because people are overworked. You know the staff – the ones who always deliver and take pride in their work. So, if you notice things getting overlooked, mistakes being made, or a shift in quality, it’s time to recruit some help.

Does your business need some help recruiting temp talent or casual workers this holiday? Labourpower can provide you with quality staff at short notice to help you deal with the ebbs and flows of the festive season.
