With the start of fall, there is change in the business season as well. It is time to start planning!
It is important to set the expectation with the employee that the work is temporary and to outline the terms of the job verbally and in writing.
Stability and Length of Assignment
Do your best to set a consistent, albeit temporary, schedule. Good workers may not stick around if they received 40 hours one week and only a few the next.
Offering higher wages or employee discounts can help when attracting quality season workers. Know what the competition is paying and be wiling to match that to help retain top talent. Small things like providing stocked snack areas and a stocked Keurig can really boost morale!
Make it clear that although this is a temporary assignment, you are always on the lookout for your next great full-time team member. Conduct an exit interview and give high performers a referral letter for future use.
