Why Hiring and the Holidays Go Together

  • Hiring and the Holidays

If you hired temporary or permanent staff for the holidays, now is the time to assess how well it worked for you. And if you didn't, here are some great reasons to think about doing so next time.

 

Use — Instead of Lose — the Annual Hiring Budget

If your budget is tied to the calendar year, you might have unspent reserves that you shouldn't let slip through your fingers. This is especially true if you're reasonably sure you'll need to do some significant recruiting in the near future; by starting in Q4, you can spread the expense over two budget years.

 

Get First — and Only — Crack at the Best Employee Material

Many recruiters, and job seekers, go into a holding pattern for the holidays. Those candidates who don't slack off now demonstrate a superior work ethic; and if you are equally persistent, you can snap them up with virtually no competition.

 

Test Drive Temporary Workers for Permanent Positions

Lucky you if your business needs to bring in extra help for the holidays. It's a golden opportunity to gauge how they perform on the job before offering full-time employment. No interview or recruitment test can give you that.

 

Leverage Holiday Networking

With so many parties and events going on, you'll have more opportunities to hear about and meet promising candidates, and/or woo them away from their current positions.

 

Take Advantage of Holiday Flexibility

This time of year it's easier for candidates to get time off from their current employment in order to interview with you.

 

The holidays may fall at the end of the year, but an employer who hires then is actually the early bird who gets the worm. And though the holiday season is technically over, it's not too late to reap its rewards. One of the most common New Year's resolutions is to find a better job. Put your recruiting feelers out now, and you'll get a fresh new crop of job seekers to choose from!
