At this time of year many companies and organisations look to boost their teams with temporary staff. As an HR professional, it’s important you offer these new colleagues a thorough onboarding experience. It’s easier than you might think!
Temporary workers are a growing part of the UK workforce. Between 2008 and 2014 their numbers increased by 20%. And while recruitment for temporary workers spikes in the run- up to Christmas, the growing popularity of flexible working makes recruitment a year-round event.
While pre- and onboarding processes have traditionally focused on permanent staff, it’s important not to neglect temporary workers. Not only will a thorough onboarding programme create the best possible impression of your organisation, it will also:
- Improve staff retention
- Boost engagement
- Train staff quickly and efficiently
- Educate on policies, procedures and values
- Create a seamless experience between permanent and temporary staff, as well as those based in different locations
Take the onboarding process online for the added benefits of self-led learning, even before a new starter joins. Analytics provide valuable insight, not only on the performance of each individual, but also the overall impact of your onboarding programme.
This demo provides simple but clever ideas for onboarding casual workers. Although we’ve created an example for retail, it could be used in any industry or use case.
