The Benefits of Hiring Temporary Workers

Often a go-to for seasonal businesses or retailers who need extra help around the holidays, temporary workers could be a perfect solution during uncertain times. 

When a company needs extra hands to finish a project, fill a backlog of orders, prepare for a new product launch or to help meet a deadline, temporary workers are just the ticket: People who are available, eager to work, ready to join your team for a short time and then move on to the next job. 

Temporary work benefits the employees as it’s an avenue for income for a set length of time, plus it gives them new work experiences that can help point them in the direction of a new career (if they so choose). But there are plenty of advantages to managers and companies as well!

An administrative assistant is a manager’s right and left hand. They keep the office running at top speed, with everything in its place and all deadlines kept top of mind.

6 Signs You’re Not Delegating Enough

There are only so many hours in a day and so many days in a week. As a leader, one of the most important skills you can cultivate is knowing when you take a task on yourself and when to delegate it to someone else. 

Delegating responsibilities is not a symptom of laziness or ineffectiveness. It’s a way to prioritize your time while allowing others on your team to rise to the challenge and expand their skills. It’s also a way to show you trust your team to contribute, in an important way, on a big project.

If you’ve ever wondered whether you’re delegating enough, that’s usually an indication you’re not.

At a minimum, people spend 40 hours of their lives every week at work. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less, but that’s still a significant portion of their waking hours. 

If employees feel like work is a place of stress, drudgery, or ruthless competition and pressure, they’re not going to enjoy coming to work. They’ll be more inclined to look for a way out or excuses for missing work, and that can hurt your overall productivity in addition to your bottom line. 

The solution is to change your company’s culture and make it a more positive, reaffirming, and productive place to work.
