Top Staffing related questions

Hiring staff through recruitment agencies can be expensive, as they charge high fees. They can also add premium prices on top of their regular fees if it’s short notice and even pre-select the candidates for you. While that can be more convenient, it can also exclude candidates who might be qualified for the role. By recruiting directly, you can be hands-on with the entire process and staff choices while keeping control of costs. 

It depends on the role you’re looking to fill in. But whatever that role is, make sure to find someone who has suitable skills and experiences. Look for their credentials and job history to see if they have the qualifications you’re looking for. Their reviews from previous clients on their profiles can also help, so you know what others have to say about the staff’s service. 

If the roles you need for your business are seasonal, it can be unsustainable to hire long-term employees. For example, hiring a short-term employee can be more cost-efficient if you need people to help you with catering for a huge event or require assistance marketing a one-time campaign. You can always hire them again if you need their services in the future! 

You can pay for your staffing service in cash. If you prefer a cashless transaction, Airtasker Pay is also available on our platform. Remember to discuss your preferred payment method with your Tasker and the payment frequency. You can pay them at once if the two of you have a one-time engagement, or you can pay them weekly or monthly for as long as you need their service. 

What do staffing services include?

Staffing services help you fill in the roles needed in your team, at least temporarily. With their suitable skills and experience, they can assist you with delivering the tasks you need to fulfil. Whether you need someone to be part of your wait staff, marketing staff, or customer service team, recruiting the best manpower resources available even at the last minute is crucial to keep your business running. 

Hospitality staffing

Running a hospitality business can be overwhelming, especially on a busy day or during a special event. In these situations, hiring a short-term barista, bartender, chef, concierge, or duty manager can keep your business running smoothly. They can be added manpower to help your entire team deliver the best service, or they can also be convenient replacements if you have key staff members calling in sick or needing a day off work. Having them on board can help you focus on important tasks while keeping your guests well-fed and entertained.

Admin staffing

Filing, planning, and data entry are additional workloads that can keep you constantly caught up. Getting help with admin tasks can take a load off your shoulders and free up your time so you can dedicate your energy to focusing on your primary duties. Whether you need a last-minute executive assistant, receptionist, or a data entry specialist to help you temporarily, hiring qualified ones can help grow your business efficiently, without paper jams, unanswered calls, and other kinds of chaos!

Marketing staffing

Hiring short-term marketing staff can help get your message across! Depending on the product or service you offer, your Tasker can approach your potential customers with offers, promotions, tasters, freebies, and other incentives to encourage them to engage with your business. They can also come up with marketing materials to help your business be known in your desired area. Sending out emails, making cold calls, and interacting with your customers can also be a part of their job.

Healthcare staffing

Outsourcing temporary physicians and nurses can help your business grow. They take care of your employees physically and mentally because healthy members of a team only mean continued success for your business. They can hold medical checkups and consultations for your organisation to ensure that your employees are in tip-top shape. It’s also highly crucial to have healthcare staff if running an office, clinic, school, church, or other institution.
