The Ultimate Guide to Managing Your Seasonal Workforce
Hourly employees are in demand across the nation. How do you find hourly employees that are motivated and committed to your company’s success? Start by understanding the state of hourly employment. Contrary to popular belief, hourly employees are not just young people looking for experience and some spending money. “While many employers aim recruiting messages only to younger people, about one-third of these workers are actually 25-44; slightly less than one-third are 45 or older.” says Mel Kleiman, President of Humetrics, a recruiting software company. “Many employers also recruit for full time positions when many hourly workers would prefer 30 or fewer hours per week.” Hourly employees come in all shapes and sizes– some need full time work, while others need a little spending money. As a manager, you need to adjust your tactics accordingly.
