We now live in a world that is moving faster than ever before. With the introduction of constantly available products, like TV on-demand service Netflix, customers now want services instantly and at the touch of a button.
As the behaviour of consumers continues to drive demand for speed, having access to ‘on-demand’ talent solutions are becoming increasingly essential to ensure businesses can keep up. When this is coupled with the constant changes from our new world of work, and the challenges of managing greater risks, businesses are realising that meeting this demand is no easy feat.
What’s So Great About Having an On-Demand Workforce?
On-demand temporary talent is often an undervalued option, and in some cases, not even considered. However, because of the shift to a more on-demand economy, the key benefits of employing these services can both support and enhance team efficiencies and support businesses to fill gaps, without blowing budgets and FTE costs.
Here are some of the key areas where we know on-demand talent solutions can add value to our partners:
1. “I need someone now.”
When someone in your business suddenly needs to take urgent leave when you have an important project to deliver, you’re going to want that gap filled extremely quickly. Having access to qualified people who have been screened by your own set requirements, and who can commence on demand for urgent support, will make all the difference when these gaps appear.
2. “I don’t want any of the risk.”
When it comes down to managing risk, this on-demand model allows our partners to have access to known talent for a fixed time, without any of the risk. Beyond Recruitment employs the temporary employee and is responsible for the management of performance, all legislative costs, insurance cover and any notice periods when a change is required.
3. “I want results from day one.”
When a gap appears in your operation and you need someone for a few days or weeks, most businesses lack the skills or available resources to fill it internally. Temporary employees are often overqualified for these roles, and hence able to bring exceptional experience and high productivity. This is essential when you want someone who can hit the ground running.
4. “I want someone who will give 100%.”
Temporary employees know that every day is their first day. We’ve seen first-hand the effort people put into their first couple days, and temporary workers are there to get the job done and impress whilst doing so.
5. “But do they have to leave?”
No. We often see our amazing temporary employees do such a fantastic job that they’re subsequently offered a permanent opportunity with our partners. These temporary to permanent options allow both parties to have a chance to get to know each other and understand whether there’s a potential fit between them.
Temporary staffing solutions are there to help you scale your operation up or down to meet individual business needs, whilst ensuring risk is appropriately managed.
