Should I Offer My Seasonal Employees a Full-Time Position?

In anticipation of the flood of holiday customers your company will be dealing with this season, you have no doubt already begun the process of hiring additional help. These seasonal employees can be a lifesaver when it comes to handling the high demand and work load that would overwhelm your regular staff. But does this necessarily mean that they would be a good match for your company year round? Read on to find out when and why you should offer seasonal employees a full-time position.

Seasonal to Full Time? The Holiday Sales Floor: A “Trial Run”

 If you are looking to add to your team and want to find only the best candidates for it, then look first to your pool of seasonal employees. These employees are coming to your company at an extremely high-stress time; the amount of work is larger, the amount of time they have to learn the ropes is shorter, and these two factors combined are enough to test the character of any worker. You can take the opportunity to see how well seasonal employees cope under stress; if one is a particular stand-out, it may be a sign that they would make a welcome addition to your full-time team in the new year!

 Supplement Your Search with Background Checks

 Seeing an employee in action may not be enough, however. They may be applying themselves now because they would like to add to their income over the holidays, but will that same level of motivation hold steady throughout the year? Check into their employment history with background checks to see whether or not their amazing work ethic is a fluke. If they have consistently good reports coming in from their previous employers, then you may want to extend an offer of a full-time position to them!
