How to hire smarter with temp-to-hire

  • Publish Date: Posted about 2 months ago

COVID has taught us that everything we know can be turned upside-down in a moment. After a brutal two years, your business may be ready to take on new staff. Before you do, think about whether temp-to-hire might be right for you. Here are some of the ways this hiring model will help you find the best candidate for the job.

Working Interview

Everyone has their best face on at interview. But can they keep faking it through days, weeks, or months on the job? By going temp-to-perm, you’ll see how candidates actually perform--but they’ll remain employees of the recruitment agency until you make a permanent offer.

Determining “Fit”

Company culture is increasingly important to both employers and employees. Again, it may be hard to determine at interview how good a fit someone will be, but temp-to-hire will give you a real sense of how they fit with your company culture and how they get on with other members of the team.

Lower Pressure

When you have a vacancy, the pressure is on to fill it as fast as possible, which can lead to bad hires. Temp-to-hire takes the pressure off by providing you with fully vetted candidates fast but giving you plenty of time to make a final decision.
