Alternatives for Finding Temporary Workers

April 1, 1997
Here's how you can help generate more temporary workers for your company and staffing suppliers:

  • Set up an internal temporary referral program with your regular staff for temporary candidates. Share the list with your supplier of choice.
  • Contact qualified excess candidates who've submitted resumes and ask if they want their names passed on to your staffing supplier for temporary work.
  • Establish an intern program with local colleges and training centers. Work with your staffing supplier to groom individuals for future temporary work-the service can provide software training and your company can provide experience through a mentoring or shadowing program.
  • Use your Web site and Internet capabilities to post both regular and temporary opportunities. Pass qualified temp candidates on to your preferred supplier.
