Temporary Services in Insurance
Although hiring has slowed for many corporations, work that must be accomplished hasn't reduced. Departments must still deal with new assignments, unexpected workloads, special projects, vacations, and illness leaves of absence.
To maintain flexibility, firms are carefully analyzing their mix of permanent and temporary employees. They are using temporaries to maintain productivity despite fewer total staff members; to access skills needed only occasionally, and boost the morale and productivity of hard working permanent employees stretched thin by heavy workloads. In fact, temporary assignments often become permanent once hiring activity resumes. What can be better than to try out a future employee?
We find the use of temporaries is growing because there are more highly specialized and talented professionals available now than ever before.
