Hiring decisions can be very stressful for everyone involved. As an employer, you’re tasked with finding someone who has both the skills needed to excel at the position and a personality that fits right in with your company culture — not an easy feat. Similarly, candidates feel immense pressure to find a job that challenges them, at a company where they can envision themselves being happy for years to come.
If you’re looking for a nontraditional alternative to the standard recruitment process, a temporary-to-hire staffing solution could be the right option. This allows you and the candidate a little extra time to get to know one another, to see if a permanent employment offer would be mutually beneficial. If the arrangement is a success, that’s great; if not, you’ve both successfully avoided what could have been a very costly hiring mistake.
Benefits for Your Company
Even the most carefully made hiring decisions are somewhat of a gamble, because you can never be absolutely certain the candidate will work out. Temporary-to-hire staffing solutions give you the time to make a truly well-informed decision on whether or not the person is the right fit for your business. Enjoy the unique opportunity to observe their work ethic, attitude, and skill level to see for yourself if they’re truly right for your organization in the long term.
Benefits for the Employee
Accepting a new job is a very nerve-wracking experience because there’s no way for a candidate to know if they’re making a great career move or one they’ll quickly regret. Entering a temporary-to-hire situation is much less stressful, because it gives them time to see if your company is a good fit before making a permanent commitment. It’s pretty much impossible to know for sure if a new job is a good fit until you’ve taken it for a test drive.
