For many industries, hiring needs fluctuate from season to season. That’s why seasonal employees are a key investment for companies that want to be productive during peak demand.

With this in mind, here are our 5 tips to help you avoid the last minute scramble for seasonal staff.

PLAN AHEADIt’s important to remember that you won’t be the only business hiring seasonally, planning ahead can ensure you stay ahead of the competition during this peak time.

Before making a seasonal hire, get together with your team and identify who you need and what you need them to do within the business. A clear idea at the start will ensure any new hires will reflect your proactive and considered approach.

THE JOB DESCRIPTIONIf the position is a new one, you’ll need a stand out job description. If you’ve hired seasonal staff before, chances are that you’ll have one you can re-examine. It’s always best to review a job description to ensure the information is up to date and accurate as inconsistencies can attract the wrong type of candidate.

According to Business Insider UK in order to attract the best talent, companies have to go the extra mile by offering cool extras that their competitors don’t. So if you have ‘Pizza Fridays’ or any other cool perks or job benefits that stand out, now’s the time to shout about it.

BE CONSISTENTBe consistent and create a plan that both your current team and external resources can follow so they know what to expect. Making these procedures the norm will better prepare your team and business during peaks within the industry.
