It’s been a long, cold winter. That is not actually a reference to the season, or the weather here in the Winter Haven – Lakeland area of Central Florida. It is a reference to the state of employment in recent years. We can say with relief that we have weathered the storm and spring time is ahead of us. Facing tough economic challenges made many, if not most of us change the way we do business. Some companies faced the difficult task of reducing their workforce, a painful chore every manager loathes. Most companies in the Bartow, Lakeland and Winter Haven area got through the worst of it and are still standing. Now that there is a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel, some are hoping to hire back the fine employees that were let go during the slump. Hiring is easy when you know what you are getting, but, what to do when some of those good people have moved on?
Business is bouncing back, orders are increasing and deadlines are looming, but many managers are still a bit gun-shy about increasing their workforce. It’s not just a “Fear of Commitment.” Fluctuating workloads and reduced budgets make personnel forecasting difficult. No one wants to go through another layoff, and realistically, new hire paperwork is a job in itself. Yet, a good manager knows that business will suffer if staffing needs are not met.
These are exactly the reasons that temp agencies are busy right now. Temporary personnel are lifesavers for busy companies. Staffing agencies work as behind-the-scenes human resources departments, doing the pre-screening and testing before personnel begin working. Unemployment and payroll taxes can all be handled by a good staffing agency (in Bartow, Lakeland and Winter Haven, KB Staffing offers No Risk Hiring.) Using a reputable staffing agency will keep overhead costs down and get the job done.
