While temporary employees can help companies work more efficiently and at a lower cost, there are some negative aspects to this.
Any employee needs time to adjust to the new environment and familiarize themselves with the company's rules. However, the temporary employee will not have enough time for this. This can lead to more mistakes, misunderstandings, and negatively affect their relationships with regular employees.

When hiring a temporary employee, think about how quickly they can adjust to their new position.
Now temporary employment is gaining popularity quite quickly, the situation with the pandemic has made it a global trend. It is expected that this type of employment will cover an increasing number of professions and specialists.

Next, you will learn about some of the factors that positively affect the productivity and retention of most temporary employees:

Any staff should be treated with respect.

After all, it often happens that the employer attracts an employee on a temporary basis, and in the process decides that he would like to continue working with him on a permanent basis. Therefore, companies also need to take care of their reputation on the part of employers.

Motivation and professional growth.

In the process of working, you immediately notice capable, responsible professionals who strive for career development. If such a specialist is able to perform more complex tasks and there is an opportunity to offer him a higher position, then new tasks will motivate and force him to develop professionally. The main thing is to properly approach the process of stimulating the employee (material and non-material), and to ensure decent working conditions.

Clearly explain the task and the rules.

Personal contact with the team and the manager on the spot.
Temporary employees, like core employees, want to know that their work is valued – why this work matters to their manager, their team, and the company as a whole.
If there is a possibility of extending the contract and long-term cooperation, it is necessary to talk about the probability and, of course, not to make empty promises.

Personal acquaintance with colleagues will help the temporary employee to get used to and join the team.
If there are important rules that you want your temporary employee to follow, be sure to discuss them as soon as possible.

Support and availability.

Most employers provide their temporary employees with information about who to contact and what to apply for, as well as a list of contacts of their colleagues.
If their work needs "permissions" to perform any actions, or where they need access to certain equipment, people who can provide these approvals or make sure they have the necessary equipment should be available as needed. Temporary employees do not like to spend time waiting for instructions, as well as making mistakes that will require improvement.
