The last two weeks of December and the first week or two of January are often challenging for companies. Many employees will have spent the previous months jostling for precious vacation days during “peak time”, while other employees often make last minute requests for time off to spend with their families.
If your company is facing these challenges, please note that you do not need to go without adequate staffing during this time. Valley Personnel has a solid slate of experienced receptionists, bookkeepers, accountants and other trained professionals that are available to fill the gaps in your staffing needs during peak vacation time.
Aside from the obvious benefit of having qualified professionals work at your office to fill the gaps, there are other benefits of going the “temp route”:
- While the temporary employee is working at your company, the employee will remain an employee of Valley Personnel, meaning that we cover all CPP, EI, vacation pay and WorkSafe premiums.
- Your company has no obligation to use the employee for a set period of time – you can simply say when you need them and when you don’t – there are no strings attached.
- Perhaps your company might need to hire a permanent employee in the near future? If that is the case, hiring a temp is a great way to vet people who could be permanent hires.
Valley has a “temp-to-perm” arrangement that provides the flexibility where your company can use a temporary employee for a length of time, and then decide to hire them permanently when and if you are ready to do so, all at a discounted placement rate. Call me at (604) 859-6511 to see if I can find you the right temporary employee for whatever position you have available or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
