Our pre-vetted talent pool, or 'Weployees' typically score 63% higher than average when it comes to soft skills such as problem solving, adaptability and communication. This means that a Weployee will be able to step in and add value to your business in many different functions. Depending on what the role is, Weployees will usually possess the same skills that staff at any other temp agency would offer. However, with Weploy, you can view the skills, psychometric profile, experience and certificates they possess before selecting them for the job, for added peace of mind. Being on demand, you can hire them for help with a specific job for one morning, and extend their duties if you're happy with their performance for a few days or a few months. The roles that a member of on demand staff can do extend into multiple different departments within a business such as Human Resources, Finance and Marketing and some examples of the tasks are listed below:
The best time to hire a temporary staff member is NOW! A Weployee is ready to add value to your business from the very start, and with an easy, intuitive online process, it is super fast and efficient hiring on demand staff via the Weploy platform. For a few hours, a week or a few months, a Weployee will help to scale up your team during busy periods and allow you to focus on what you do best.
My last post covered how business leaders are looking to build agility and foster innovation into their organisations by using Project teams. Now I want to look at the second approach that came out from my research: breaking down roles into activities and subsequently optimising tasks.
According to a report by McKinsey, 30%-60% of a front line managers time is spent on administration and meetings. And recent research by The Workforce Institute in Australia claims that by cutting just one hour of non-essential tasks could save organisations AU$22 billion dollars a year. There are many ways to help individuals prioritise tasks.
One such technique came from US President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Drawing upon his experience as the Allied Forces Supreme Commander in the Second World War, he noted:
“What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important”
He devised a simple 2x2 matrix that separates tasks into four categories, with each category determining how you should approach the task.
Let's say your receptionist calls in sick, or has some annual leave coming up. The quickest and easiest way to fill the gap immediately, is to hire a pre-vetted Weployee who is available and job-ready from the moment you need, reducing the need for time spent on briefing recruiters, waiting for applications and interviewing potential candidates.
Perhaps you don't even have a receptionist yet but your team is growing and administrative needs are spilling over into the day to day and impacting deliverables. Why not try hiring a Weployee for a few hours a day or a couple of days a week to ease the burden on the rest of the team, or help specialists focus on what they're best at during busy times.
This video, narrated by our co-founder Tony, walks you right through how to hire a Receptionist, from the creation of your Weployer profile, right through to posting the job....
Businesses of all sizes and industries use temp agencies to help them bring on extra staff quickly when they find themselves in need of support.
It could help them flex up during seasonal peaks or when an unexpected shortage arises. Having instant access to a pool of work-ready business support talent is reassuring in uncertain times or in the event of a crisis
