Engage Top-Notch Seasonal Workers to Help Drive Business During the Holiday Months

Taking proactive recruiting techniques for hiring seasonal employees can boost business during the holiday season and can even lead to permanent positions

TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Randstad Canada, the country's leader for staffing, recruitment and HR services suggests employers who are looking to hire seasonal staff, take proactive measures.

When hiring, it is important to ensure that the employees selected are the right fit for the company and can provide positive contributions to the team. When you hire employees that you know you can rely on, it will only drive your business forward.

Employers must consider all aspects of the hiring process - when to begin hiring, how to attract potential employees and the company's long-term goals.

The Early Bird Gets the Worm
The holiday season comes like clockwork. Employers as well as potential employees know when business begins to pick up and when seasonal positions become available. Employers should be thinking ahead and starting the recruiting process early. Starting the process before other companies allows a larger pool of potential employees to pick from.

Broaden your Search
You can extend your field of search to students, retirees. This age group might like some extra money or want something to do during their spare time.

Social media has also become incredibly prominent in our day to day lives. Do not hesitate to announce seasonal positions on your website, facebook or twitter feed. This way, friends and followers who are already knowledgeable about the company and endorse its values will have a chance to apply.

Staffing After the Holidays
A seasonal employee can become a returning seasonal employee or even a permanent employee if opportunity allows.

"When you hire employees that you know you can rely on, it will only drive your business forward," says Leandra Harris, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, Randstad Canada. "Seasonal positions provide an opportunity to 'test out' employees before you commit. If a full-time position becomes available soon after, you have the opportunity to add a vital member to your permanent team."

When hiring for seasonal employees, maintain the mindset of 'hiring for long term'. An individual who fits these conditions means there is a better chance they will excel at the job.
