Over the past few years we have seen a shift in the way employers and employees value temporary assignments for their business or career.
Employers acknowledge temporary employees as a long-term strategy rather than a cost-saving measure. They discover the value of temporary employees as an integral part of the success of their business. In addition, they enjoy the flexibility that makes it possible to quickly fill both short and long-term assignments.
The ability to search for specific skills for certain projects is also an advantage as business is constantly changing.
Instead of looking for permanent jobs, many candidates prefer to remain in temporary employment after completing an assignment. Just like the employers, they also see the benefits of tempwork. Consider the flexibility of temporary assignments, the opportunity to gain more experience and make important business contacts.
At Hays, we see this as an important trend in the world of work and we have strategically invested in our Flex Recruitment Services, to respond to the needs of our clients and candidates.
