Temporary Employee Resources


Preparation Prior to Recruitment

    • Having a position description can be very helpful when hiring temporary employees.
  • Determine the skills and requirements of the candidates for the positions.
  • Determine the period of time anticipated for the temporary employee.
  • Determine if this could lead to a permanent placement. When speaking with a mandated temporary agency, inquire as to what conversion fees would apply.
