5 Things You Should Know About Your Dynamic Workers

1. Dynamic workers need to be treated equally

It’s not just that they want it–by law they require it. In the UK, an agency worker is entitled, among others, to receive at least the National Minimum Wage and the statutory minimum length of rest breaks and holidays. Dynamic workers must also be allowed to use the company canteens, transportation pick-up services and other services that permanent workers may use.

2. They are brand ambassadors

Treating your temporary workers with respect is something we shouldn’t be reminding you to do, but going beyond their expectations can be beneficial for your business strategy. If they like working with you, it’s more likely they will talk about your products or services and will recommend them to their friends and their acquaintances.

3. Their feedback is precious

Whether you are a staffing agency that send workers to work to your client’s facilities or you manage dynamic workers in-house, you should really value your staff’s feedback. If you are a staffing agency, they can tell you about certain job-related requirements that your client may not communicate but are important to perform the job. This information gives you the opportunity to brief your candidates to excel above competition in the future. If you occasionally hire dynamic workers in-house, you must consider their comments and feedback, since they come with a fresh pair of eyes to quickly detect inefficiencies and improve your operations.

4. Dynamic workers want to have control

A typical agency worker likes the flexibility they have when it comes to choosing their availability and applying to the jobs or gigs they are interested in. They appreciate being dynamic workers. Empowering them with the ability to have their work-related information accessible at their fingertips will significantly increase their engagement with your business. Leveraging cloud and mobile technology allows your dynamic workers to instantly feel they belong to your team. Some forward-thinking agencies already use modern shift broadcast systems like F3, or allow their candidates to swap shifts in-app with manager approval.

5. They bring new skills to your team

Having new people in your team is always beneficial if you are looking to address a temporary challenge. It’s not only a clever choice to face a seasonal peak demand, but also to quickly incorporate skilled employees for a business transition or arduous temporary projects. Consider the different talents your candidates bring to your team. Leveraging a temporary agency can be a great resource to find permanent hires for your organisation too! Even in the staffing business, you may find a candidate with relevant skills to help your business from the inside.
