Why Temporary Employees Should Be Screened

Why it’s important to screen temporary employees.

Even though the busiest time for hiring temporary employees just passed, it can still be a great time to explore hiring temporary employees. When looking for temporary employees, employers are still looking for quality employees quickly.

Workers Must Be Fit For The Job

With temporary hiring, employers have an extremely limited amount of time to get great employees hired. Big companies who hire hundreds of temporary employees at once require employees who are able and fit for the job. These companies are not saving any money or time when employees lack certain qualifications in their roles.


Most temporary work centers around flexibility and adaptability. During a busy season, such as the holidays, it’s even more important to have employees who are easily adaptable, flexible and ready to hire.

Employee Morale

Temporary employees interact with all employees of the company, meaning you want them to be excited and enthusiastic about their job instead of having a poor attitude. Poor behavior and attitude can quickly spread throughout the company and affect the overall working environment. A single person’s bad attitude and poor behavior can lead to more tardiness and other negative consequences leading to negative working morale.

Customer Satisfaction

Although temporary employees are not permanent, while working they will still have to ability to communicate with your customer base. They still reflect your company and the brand. Although you may feel desperate to simply hire the first person you interview, these people will end up serving as a reflection of your entire business. Poor customer experience can lead to negative reviews online that may tarnish your reputation. This will have a direct impact on your revenue and bottom dollar.

Efficient Conversion to Permanent Employees

It’s important to remember that some of the temporary employees you hire could end up becoming permanent employees at end of their temporary assignment. This means you are looking for potential permanent employees who excel in their job duties. It saves you more money, time and is just far more efficient to convert temporary employees to permanent employees.
