Personalised gifts could make "vital" staff feel appreciated
As a recruitment expert notes bringing in temporary staff can give a business "vital flexibility", bosses may want to consider offering personalised gifts as a way of showing their appreciation for their work.
Tom Hadley, director of policy and professional services for the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), reports that an increasing number of companies will be looking to hire such workers over the coming months, as uncertainty over the strength of the economy persists.
And doing so could prove of particular benefit to small firms, as the REC director claims it allows them to "take staff on quickly when they need to".
Mr Hadley also notes such a recruitment strategy is "quite low-risk" in the tough economic climate.
Whether they are looking to reward temporary or permanent staff, employers may want to consider offering personalised gifts to workers.
Dilly Robinson, principal research fellow at the Institute for Employment Studies, claimed that while employees were willing to accept job cuts and pay freezes at the start of the recession, many workers believe they are entitled some form of reward.
