Forbes contributor Kevin Kruse makes the case in his article, “Temps: 3 Reasons to Hire Them Right Now” for using temporary specialty staff in a proactive way instead of for traditional reasons–maternity leave and medical coverages, filling vacancies, expanding your staff during growth periods, supplementing staff during extremely busy periods–which he considers a “reactive tactic to business demands”.
Instead, Kruse poses looking at temporary workforce from a different perspective, a more proactive strategy. He suggests using highly skilled temporary staff to supplement existing in-house talent and provide a fresh perspective on projects. In addition, he recommends the temp-to-perm strategy as an excellent method for hiring permanent staff members.
