A Temp Agency may help increase workplace friendships and boost morale

Posted on Nov 27, 2019

Companies with happily connected employees are likely to be successful and develop camaraderie with coworkers. They can become relaxed in a friendly environment and actually enjoy coming to work.  It uplifts the mood and boosts morale!  Partnering with a temp agency in your backyard such as Bergen County, New Jersey can help a candidate locate such a workplace.

Choosing a temp agency that has a large client base located in Bergen County with various corporate cultures enables a candidate to work with a recruiter who can make the best match.  They guide as the ‘go-between’ or ‘mediator’, pointing temps in the right direction.  The agency’s Recruiter has the expertise to match a temp’s skills and experience into a specific position because they are familiar with the internal corporate environment.  This awareness between client and temp agency empowers the transition of an employee’s soft skills into comfortable surroundings.

Creating close social relationships and having a best friend or two at work is comforting and relieves some of the day-to-day pressures.  Companionship helps an employee thrive through successful times and migrate through all the daily challenges that arise at work.   A positive alliance impacts an employee’s physical health as well.  A collaboration with coworkers helps an employee perform through difficulties, rather than just leaving the company dissatisfied.  It actually makes the day glide smoother.  Coworkers all tend to treat each other better after chatting and sharing interests over lunchtime.  Workers can gain a fresh perspective from personalities who are different from themselves.  A temp agency can help make the connection.

The benefit of a work friend goes far beyond lending a hand on a project.  It is important to have a go-to person at work as issues crop up.  If your friend leaves the job, you’ll have the perfect reference for each other.  Future opportunities may even emerge. 

Temp agencies understand that, if an employee loves what they do, the outcome gives beneficial performance results to the employer.

Temp agencies also know that Gen Z’ers and Millennials hold the highest percentage of workplace friendships, as they seem to understand a basic need for bonding, sense of belonging, and human engagement at work.  They healthily consider coworkers as ‘work family’.  Positive friendships at work contribute to longer service to one company, reducing the desire to ‘job-hop’. 

There seems to be a rampant sense of loneliness and depression among remote workers who work in a solitary environment, those not able to share face-to-face companionship at work.  Bergen County hosts a wide array of small and large companies.  Why not let a temp agency with a Bergen County presence make the right match. 

A temp agency recruiter can be a conduit to the impossible. An agency follows up with employees, checks in, and monitors an employee’s connection to the company while gauging job satisfaction, acting as a barometer for a temp in supporting their success.

The Modern Age temp job through a Temp Agency in NJ is not your Granny’s Gig.

Posted on Nov 08, 2019

In postwar America, temporary jobs in NJ were created to fill a genuine need for businesses that needed help when their employees were sick, on vacation, or otherwise not able to work for short periods.  They were stereo-typically ‘bad’ jobs with lower wages, no benefits or job security.  In the 1970’s, they were lower-skilled positions in the industrial industry or female workers with typing and accounting skills.  In the 1980’s, a positive about-face took place with temporary (“temp”) jobs being viewed as a legitimate career, providing family-sustaining employment and the benefit of worker flexibility.  By the year 2000, 90% of companies supplemented their full-time staff with 3 million temporary employees.  In the State of NJ, 124,400 Temp Agency workers are hired weekly across 1,250 companies, fulfilling a sizable sector of American employment.  According to the US Census Bureau, “More than 500,000 temporary and part-time jobs are available as the Census Bureau ramps up hiring to conduct the 2020 Census next year.  Pay ranges from $13 to $30 an hour, depending on where you live”.

Today Temporary Agency workers who work at Temp Agencies in NJ are performing highly skilled tasks and utilizing their broadened range of educational qualifications and history of accomplishments.  Temps bring useful and professional skills for many reasons.  They may have been downsized or laid off from a corporation after years of successful contributions, company outsourcing, globalization, or technological changes – gone is the era of a lifetime career or a lifelong job. 

Today’s modern temp or permatemp positions integrate the tech world in significant ways.  As an emerging career trend, a contractor, or temp, is not treated as a commodity, but as a professional, valued as much as a full time employee of the company.   While the unemployment rate is at the lowest since 1969, the US is reaching the tipping point of more open jobs than temps to fill them.  Temporary workers who work in NJ are reaping benefits of a multitude of open opportunities, often in companies of their own choice.  It’s not just about the job anymore, but more about how the company relates to the candidate.  Temp Agencies with a presence in NJ have shifted the mindset and treat a candidate more like a customer, heavily engaging and attracting this current smaller pool of candidates to their client’s companies.

Prior to placing a temp with a new client, the Temp Agency in NJ feels the importance of meeting with and touring the client’s facility, viewing firsthand live engagement of the team, especially in the department in which the temp will be working.  Staffing has evolved into a “try before you buy” status, which repeatedly proves successful for both the temp and the NJ Temp Agency.  It’s a cost-effective way to recruit and test abilities of a worker before transitioning them to full-time permanent.  The Temp Agency bears the burden of recruiting, payroll expenses, and workers compensation.  

A company asks the Temp Agency to look for a temp who will create an environment of assimilation.  The company nurtures and treats the temporary worker as a valuable, beneficial and profitable team member of the staff.  At the same time, a strong Temp Agency with a presence in NJ encourages the temp, “If you work at a high level, you’ll raise your chances of being hired permanent”, and is always thrilled to hear from the temp, “I did it, I’m going Perm”!  One more success story.
