You brought someone on board to cover a maternity leave or help out with a special project. You had no intention of hiring on a full-time basis. Now, you’ve seen just what they can do – and you don’t want to let them go. But how can you be sure hiring your temporary worker is really the right move? As one of Tempe’s top staffing services, we know the signs. Here’s a look at 4 of them:
#1: They’re delivering excellent work.
You give them a task and not only do they execute perfectly, but they finish it off early. They’re regularly turning in high quality work and then asking for more assignments. Or they’re going outside of their own role – once their work is complete – and helping fellow co-workers out. These are some indications you have a top performer on your hands.
#2: They’re eager to learn.
When they’re not doing great work, they’re asking questions and on the hunt for resources so they can obtain more knowledge and skills. They’re enthusiastic about learning, want to be crystal clear about every aspect of their job, and also want to fully understand how the company as a whole operates.
#3: They’re forging ties with others.
They’re friendly, personable and genuinely interested in others. While they’re not a full-time team member, they’ve certainly started to feel like one. They’re not afraid to put themselves out there, get involved and meet people outside their comfort zone and department.
#4: They’re flexible and willing to help.
They jump at the chance to take on a new task or assignment. They’re happy to lend a hand wherever needed, even if it’s outside of their job description. And they’re flexible and open to taking on whatever needs to get done to make the company successful.
If these signs sound familiar – and you have a temporary employee who fits the description – then they’re certainly worth considering hiring on a full-time basis.
What’s even better is that when you convert a temporary employee to a full-time one, you’re significantly reducing the likelihood of a hiring mistake. After all, you already have first-hand insight into their skills and abilities, as well as how their personality fits with the dynamics of your team. Likewise, they already know what the culture and the company is like, so you don’t have to worry about them jumping ship after a few months. Either way, it’s a win-win.
