Many employers have a similar story when it comes to hiring.
You interview a prospective candidate for an available position. They seem smart, professional and capable. You offer them a job and they join your team. And that’s when everything goes downhill.
Maybe they just aren’t a good fit for your organization. Or possibly they stretched the truth on their resume and don’t in fact posses the skills that they listed. But whatever the reason is, you’ve now made them a full-time job offer and they don’t meet your company’s needs. At all.
Hiring new staff can be extremely tricky. It takes time, resources and a lot of attention to detail. For a lot of employers, it’s simply not possible to fully determine whether or not a candidate will be a good match for your organization when you hire them. While you can make an educated guess—and check references to back you up—there are large risks involved when it comes to hiring.
This is precisely why so many companies swear by temp-to-hire.
What is Temp-to-Hire?
Temp-to-hire staffing is exactly what the name implies: offering a temporary position that has the possibility and potential of turning into a permanent role. What happens is that an employer hires a new employee in a temporary capacity, for a fixed amount of time then—if all goes well—offers them a full-time position within the organization. Temp-to-hire placements are often facilitated by staffing agencies and offer a number of great benefits.
So What’s In It For You?
Temp-to-hire essentially gives employers the chance to continue interviewing a staff member while they’re on the job. Think of it as taking a car out for a test drive before you decide to purchase it. Temp-to-hire placements allow you to hire an employee that you think will be a good fit for your company and then carefully observe them in the workforce. You get to know how they work within your current team and what they would be like as a full-time staff member. And once you’ve made up your mind, you can easily make them a permanent offer.
This approach eliminates the risk associated with hiring someone full-time, which results in a more efficient organization and a happier overall workforce.
