3 Reasons Why Temporary Employment is The Solution to Supplement Vacation Time

Posted

Peak vacation time has arrived, and your employees are eager to cash in their Paid Time Off (PTO). You want your team to be happy, but can be hard to keep the business running when multiple people plan to be out of the office at the same time. Thankfully, there is an easy solution that enables employees to enjoy their time off, while ensuring your projects remain on schedule and that business operations continue running smoothly. The solution: temporary employees.

3 Reasons to Use Temporary Employment Solutions to Supplement Vacation Time

1. Improve Morale

Your team works hard to earn their PTO. They deserve to enjoy this benefit, so long as they follow company policy when making the request. While most people are understanding when unexpected, yet critical issues arise at work, they can become resentful if vacation requests are routinely declined.

After all, people typically vacation with family and friends. If you decline their desired vacation dates, you might keep them from spending time with loved ones. This is both unfair and discouraging, as employees need a personal life to enjoy a sense of balance.

While you cannot allow your entire staff to take vacation at once, doing your best to approve vacation requests, sets a good precedence. Temporary employees can fill in for vacationing staff, providing them with the opportunity to relax, and allowing you to feel confident that the job will still get done. Once vacations are over, employees will be recharged and ready to get back to work!

2. Stay on Schedule

Granting vacation requests can be painful when you know the absence can impact the business. Will tasks and projects get completed or will t However, this is a non-issue when you hire temps. These professionals arrive on your doorstep trained and ready to hit the ground running!

3. Reduce Overtime

Traditionally, when people are out of the office, the rest of the team is forced to divide and conquer their tasks. Since they also have to do their own jobs, the additional workload can be very taxing. These employees are often forced to work longer hours, resulting in low levels of job satisfaction and high overtime costs. Temporary employees can eliminate this issue by handling all aspects of vacationing employees’ jobs. This is a win-win solution, as no one has to deal with the frustrations of working — or paying for — overtime.
