With unpredictability and unexpected spikes in demand happening across many industries, the challenge to match staffing levels with customer needs gets even harder. If you’re experiencing staffing issues right now, temporary labor is the answer you’re looking for—giving your business a great way to manage and prepare for these variables.

Where to look for these temporary workers is a whole other question. Partnering with a staffing agency could be the key that unlocks a world of opportunities for your business. But choosing the right staffing agency to help make it happen might seem like an impossible task.

If you need temporary labor right now, you can request staff with PeopleReady. Here’s how we’ll help you succeed.

We flex for your future staffing needs

After an economic downturn or any other unexpected event, you may be hesitant to make any major investments such as hiring new employees. In fact, a recent article in the Society for Human Resource Management noted that during tough times, the growth of temporary jobs generally outpaces that of full-time permanent positions. And your business will find that temporary labor gives you the flexibility to stay balanced, to survive, and to even grow stronger.

Given the inevitable ups and downs of the economy, things can change at a moment’s notice. According to a recent McKinsey & Company survey of staffing companies, 70% of respondents are expecting an economic rebound this year. With hopes high for better days ahead, you’ll be in position to act quickly and capitalize on new opportunities by bringing on temporary workers in the short term.

We place temporary workers just a click away

Recessions and other times of economic uncertainty are often a turning point for people in a variety of work roles. They may be furloughed, lose their jobs altogether, or they may have a sudden need for a more flexible work schedule because of family commitments and other responsibilities. The number of temp workers in the U.S. is the highest it’s been since 1990, according to financial services company The Hartford.

This frees you up to focus solely on making your business better than it’s ever been.
