Wote St Employment Bureau are ressurecting the Temp of the Month award.
In a recent Wote St Employment Bureau poll, temporary workers declared that awards such as this, not only raised their self esteem, it showed the Hiring Client that they were a valued part of the agency itself. Temporary work is a vital part of our economy and is a great way of not only helping people back into permanent work, but also helping people to juggle busy family lives with paid work.
Many employers also see it as an invaluble way to fulfil cyclical work patterns. It keeps staffing costs realistic (even with the Agency Workers’ Regulations) and is an ideal way to spot potential talent for when the budget allows permanent recruitment.
