Chances are, COVID-19 has impacted your business in some way and dealing with these unexpected changes has probably been a difficult transition. If you’ve found that you need to make changes to your current workforce, a staffing agency may be what you need. Here’s a few advantages of using a temp agency during COVID-19:

Minimize Employee Overtime

Using a temp agency can help you minimize employee overtime by providing you more temporary workers, which is a win-win situation for both you and the employees. Typically, during uncertain times, people like to be home with their families as much as possible while still working to support them, so minimizing their overtime gives them more time to be home. You also get to reduce your spending on overtime.

 

Aid Manufacturing Peaks

Now more than ever, employees are being asked to stay home if they feel sick or have a fever. Normally, many employees will power through certain symptoms and come to work, but they’re likely much more cautious right now. This could leave you with fewer employees during your manufacturing peaks, but hiring a temp agency can help you temporarily increase your workforce.

 

Flexible Workforce

You’re most likely dealing with ever-changing demand as a result of COVID-19, and your current workforce may not be equipped to deal with it. The current peaks and valleys may not align with the ones you’re used to, but a temp agency can help you adjust and add or remove workers based on your need.
