Meeting customer demand can be quite the juggling act. Every business wants to expand, but when you expand too quickly, it puts a huge strain on your staff. Hiring more employees would allow you to adjust to a bigger workload. You may be unable to afford adding new members to your staff, though. One solution is to hire subcontractors or temporary workers. That’ll help you keep up with demand, and it saves you from all the extra taxes and benefits that make hiring full-time employees so expensive. You also might need to use temporary workers if there are seasons when you’re particularly busy, Here’s the problem with hiring temporary workers: they know they’re never going to be promoted. They know they’re never going to get a raise. So why should they give you their full effort? Long-term, full-time employees can climb the ladder and earn the prestige of a higher title (and the higher pay that comes with it) if they work hard. Temporary workers don’t have that incentive.
