How about “Try before you Buy” when choosing new staff ?

Selecting new staff for your business can be a time consuming, and sometimes scary, situation. Going through the dozens of applications, screening and sorting to try and find a short-list of the best suited for the job…and then how can you be sure?

Unless you’re a human resources specialist, trained and experienced in selecting people for your organisation, you probably lose a little sleep when faced with the decision of who to hire. Are they experienced enough to walk in and do the job? How much training will they require? Will they fit in well with the rest of the staff? How reliable will they be?

If only you could have the short listed candidates “on trial” for a couple of months, then you could have some “on the job” answers to those questions…but that isn’t possible.  Or is it?

Consider this for a moment. These days there are an increasing number of very experienced, reliable, mature age people who are readily available and willing to take a position on a part time basis and, if it works out, stay on as a full time employee if the fit is right.

Here in the Northern Rivers region of NSW our temp agency, SilverTemp has placed several people into positions on a part-time basis and the organisation has asked us to transfer them to full time employment or permanent part time employment after a few months on the job.  We call it our “Try before you Buy” program.

In a few cases we have placed a couple of people into the same role at different times over a period of 6-12 months and the company has made a choice after these trial periods with minimal disruption in the workplace…a “win win” situation all round.

If the SilverTemp program might work for you why not give us a call and discuss your staffing needs before you place that ad in the newspaper or put the job onto SEEK?
