  1. Quick Process

If you are in a pinch and need immediate help, hiring an interim worker is a great route to take. Unlike when hiring a permanent employee, the process for hiring an interim worker is quick. Xplora will quickly provide your company with the most skilled and qualified professional for the job. Temporary hires are typically able to begin working right away so you will see immediate returns!

2. Valuable for project-based work

Interim hires can help your team immensely with projects! If the workload at your company fluctuates and you are looking for extra help with a specific project, hiring a temporary employee during busy times to take on some of the workload could be helpful. This can help prevent stress and burnout in the workplace.

3. Allows for an evaluation period

When hiring temporary workers, the risk factor and commitment are low! Since they are only with the company temporarily, it provides a built-in trial period to evaluate if they would be a good fit as a permanent employee. If you decide to move forward and hire them permanently, they will likely have a smooth transition into their new position because they already have experience at the company. This will save a lot of time because an extensive on-boarding and training process will not be necessary.

4. Cost-effective

Hiring an interim consultant can be a cost-effective way to replace permanent employees who may be out due to illness, maternity leave, family leave, sabbatical or any other long-term absence. If they are expected to return within 6 months, bringing on a contingent worker to temporarily fill in for the employee on leave is a smart alternative to hiring a new full-time employee to take on their workload.

5. Brings a fresh perspective

Interim consultants are able to bring a new perspective to your company. As a temporary worker they have likely had a lot of relevant experiences and insightful opinions to bring to the table. Bringing consultants in to help with project-based work will change the dynamic in the workplace which can boost morale and productivity.

The Right Team. Right Now.
