Many employers hire seasonal workers to help them with their increased business during the summer.
Summer employees may not be very hard to come by, but finding the right qualified employees can be a tough process. Not only do employers have to decide the demographics of the temporary help they need, but they also have to know where they’re going to find and train them in a quick and cost-effective manner. If you’re planning on hiring a summer employee, but don’t exactly know where to start, here are three tips to soothe your hiring pains.
- Decide on how you will reach them. There are many platforms that people use to look for work. If you want to reach out as many people as possible, you’re going to have to think outside of the box. On your job description, explain your ideal candidate: motivated, goal-oriented, and passionate about your brand.
- Determine who you will hire. There could be as many as hundreds of applicants, and not all of them will be qualified. In fact, it’s safe to assume that the majority of applicants will not be qualified and are a waste of your time. Look for keywords on their resumés that match your company’s brand and mission statement.
- Invest in training for the new employee(s). It’s important that you think long term when you train the seasonal employees because any one of them could become full-time employees by summer’s end. Choose to invest big, since these employees will have the same impact on customers as regular employees.
Summer employees are just like regular employees. Thus, they need to be insured. Contact the experts at Stromsoe Insurance Agency for all of your business insurance coverage needs. We will work with you to ensure you have the right amount of protection, all at the right price to fit your budget.
