If there’s one thing that companies and employers crave right now, it’s flexibility. There’s no question that many managers and their staffs are overburdened at the moment, constantly looking for ways to accomplish more regardless of market conditions.
With this in mind, there are a variety of different situations in which a company might opt to hire an interim (or temporary) employee. Those situations include the following:
Part of the flexibility inherent in hiring an interim or temporary employee is that the company can utilize their skills and know-how for any length of time, as much—or as little—as they need to.
The problem for many company officials is that they’re hesitant or fearful about hiring on an interim basis. However, when examined more closely, the pros outweigh the cons, and the benefits could be tremendous. As many fears and pitfalls as there are when it comes to hiring candidates on an interim basis, there are just as many—if not more—advantages and benefits:
Now let’s address the fears or potential pitfalls:
Flexibility and creativity are vitally important in today’s job market. Companies can’t be too rigid in their approach. Instead, they should be willing to accommodate the varying factors involved with each individual situation. No two interim positions are exactly the same, and no two interim employees are exactly the same. Attempting to apply the same rigid guidelines to all of them could be counterproductive.
Besides, if the ultimate goal is to convince the employee or executive to stay for the long haul, being flexible and accommodating will go a long way toward accomplishing that goal.
