Temporary workers are less likely to develop negative attitudes based on exposure to office politics and management issues, Bonnie Burke, co-owner of Shore Staffing, says in a recent column that appeared in the Delaware Wave, a weekly newspaper in Delaware.
Burke also offers some tips a business should follow when hiring temporary staff. Your staffing firm can communicate these tips to your clients so they are better prepared for their temporary employees.
- Tell your staff what you are doing. Even the most secure employee will feel threatened if they see a new person come in, even if it’s for three weeks.
- Be specific with the temporary worker, telling them exactly what you want done.
- Treat them the way you want to be treated. Even if they are only with you a short time, they should be treated like other members of the team.
