The science and medical industries—leaders in temp hiring.
Although the economy is recovering, there is still a bit of uneasiness. Because of this, companies are relying heavily on temporary employees ( temp staffing revenue is up significantly, year-over-year ). Two industries leading the charge are science and medical. Both industries are ripe with innovation and technology, which often calls for short-term specialty talent.
Temps can bring the same experience, skill sets and contributions as full-time employees. They also provide unparalleled flexibility; companies can ramp up workforce size during high-demand, and dial it back later. This strategy reduces the investment—and potential risk—in hiring full-time employees, which can help the bottom line.
While it’s obviously necessary to invest in talented full-time employees for long-term positions, qualified temps are the best option for short-term needs. They’re also a viable option when looking to bridge the gap between an open position and the time it takes to hire a full-time employee for that position (this could even be a “temp-to-hire” situation).
Hiring specialty temps should be approached with the same attention to detail and thoughtfulness as full-time hires. Science and medical temps should fit your company culture, have the ability to learn quickly and possess certain characteristics.
