News: Travail Has Quality Temps

Posted on 19th July 2018


It’s that time of year again when our thoughts turn to holidays. It’s a great time of year as an employee and one which we look forward to all year, however as a business it can be a real challenge to cope with the numerous staff holidays. In addition, if your business experiences seasonal highs during summer, staffing levels may be an even bigger problem. This is where summer temps can be a fantastic solution, and bring with them so many additional benefits that you may not have considered…

Temporary workers can be very flexible – you hire them when you need them, for as long as you need them. This helps you avoid overloading your permanent staff in an attempt to cover the workload and means that productivity doesn’t dip. Often, temps are used to fitting into a variety of businesses which means that they integrate very quickly into your team and can hit the ground running.

Hiring a temp is a good way to trial someone before you take them on as a permanent staff member. This is a great way to see how well the temp fits into the business culture and team. If you think they are a perfect fit for you, depending on each individual temp’s circumstances, you then potentially have the option to extend their contract after the summer period and even hire them permanently.

This year has seen a ‘bumper’ year in available temporary candidates and students who are actively seeking work over the summer months. With a range of skills, experience, qualifications and lots of time on their hands, there might just be someone who could fill a gap for you this summer whilst existing team members take their well-deserved summer holidays.

Whether you need 1 or 10 people for a day, week or month to do admin or data entry / filling envelopes / outbound telemarketing/ picking and packing orders / assisting the accounts team / assembling mechanical goods – with our pool of wonderfully eager temps, we will nearly always be able to facilitate your request!

Please call our team if we can help you with quality temps to support you over the summer. All of our temps complete a robust interview and registration process and are thoroughly reference checked, as part of our commitment to you to provide the very best recruitment support.

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
