Running a successful business requires a strong and stable team working towards common goals. One of the most challenging aspects of managing a business is perhaps building such a team. A stable team could have permanent or temporaryemployees, or a mix of both, depending on business requirements. Business owners and managers must be clear about their goals as well as their recruitment budget before deciding on the type of employment that would best help the business.
Hiring permanent employees is akin to making a long-term investment in the business; they can help build a strong foundation. Unlike permanent employees, temporary employees are hired for predetermined periods of time. Hiring the latter is less costly and offers more flexibility. While small businesses may prefer to outsource functions such as accounting, HR or IT, larger businesses often prefer to manage such functions themselves.
There are benefits and disadvantages to both permanent and temporary employment. Every employer must decide which side the scales tip more and choose the most suitable arrangement. More often than not, it’s a mixed bag.
The downside of permanent hiring is largely financial. For many organisations, especially large ones, the advantages may outweigh the disadvantages.
Temporary employment may involve contract or freelance work.
Businesses can hire temporary employees in a shorter time since the pre-employment processes are usually less laborious. Being associated with a professional staffing organisation can take care of all the pre-employment vetting. The talent pool of temporary workers is larger too.
Permanent employment has traditionally been the preferred mode of employment because of the financial stability and benefits it offers. However, temporary work is slowly becoming very popular too. The pandemic gave temporary work a boost, given the flexibility offered in terms of hours and location.
To remain competitive, businesses might gain most by having a mix of both permanent and temporary employees. At the end of the day, the decision about the type of employment depends on the size and goals of the business and the organisation’s budget.
