Jobs2Go – Tis the season for temp work

The festive season is finally upon us! If you’ve been working in the staffing industry for as long as us, you will know that this is one of the most demanding times for both staff and agency. With a ‘staff-heavy’ season commencing, requirements from all industries increase for reasons such as the dreaded ‘Black Friday’ sales to the myriad of Christmas parties that require staffing. This obviously requires a huge amount of personnel depending on your business needs.

Hypothetically, what would happen to your event if front of house staff ‘no-showed’ for the biggest Christmas event on your books? Would you be able to host the event as efficiently? Perhaps your kitchen porters have decided that they would rather take the day off and have their own party? Comical exaggeration? Sure! But we’ve seen it happen before. Why take the risk?

Outsourcing and temporary recruitment puts the power back in your hands! You will never have to worry about being short-staffed and the great thing is, when the busy period ends and you no longer need the increased staffing, you can simply return back to the way business was before. You may realise that having those extra pairs of hands was just what you needed to give your event that signature touch!

Still not convinced? The number of staff being hired on temp contracts over the festive season is truly gobsmacking! Big players that require a high concentration of personnel, such as Royal Mail, take on around 19,000 new recruits over a two month period, while Amazon has been reported to take on just less than that amount. Companies like these are desperate for additional BOH (back of house) staff to keep up with the increased demand that the ‘busy season’ brings. Not all businesses can adopt the same model of hiring such a large workforce over a short period of time, firstly because they may not have the budget for it, and secondly because they just don’t know if demand will create the requirement for extra staff. That’s where an accredited staffing agency like Jobs2Go can help; by providing the highest calibre of staffing, whilst you – the business owner, event manager or HR manager – can concentrate on what really matters during this season; making sure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible before normality resumes.
