Use Your Skills to be a Positive Influence in the Workplace through an Employment Agency

Posted on Sep 17, 2021

It is beneficial for a job seeker to consider partnering with an employment agency. Choosing one that mirrors your integrity, work ethic, and similar core values.  This match allows an employee’s skills to shine and deliver a positive influence to an employment agency’s client.

The ability to influence others is a challenging skill to master, yet an effective one.  It encourages one’s career advancement, boosts credibility, and allows one to build a higher impact on the team and company.  This skill set is an asset for an employee on assignment at an employment agency.  The key is to make values and expertise impossible to ignore! 

It’s a worthwhile idea for a job seeker to research local temporary employment agencies, in order to determine if it is a worthwhile ally.  Partnering with the right agency will allow an employee to explore employment opportunities with a client that shares the same values as the job seeker. The benefit of working in a temporary-to-hire position provides an opportunity to try out a company and determine if talent is recognized and given the opportunity to shine.  All of these components help to create an engaged worker; a worthwhile strategy to seek a competitive advantage.

Temporary employees from an employment agency regularly can contribute unique and constructive skills, with competence and proficiency.  They can share their past experiences from various previous contract/temporary assignments from both large and small employers. In summary, temps can become a positive influence in the workplace. 

When temporary/contract employees successfully complete previous assignments, they arrive at their new assignment eager and ready to go.  They exemplify flexibility, a desire to start tasks quickly, and meld into the company environment. In fact, clients of employment agencies agree that minimal training was required when hiring an employee that demonstrated the same values and became a positive influence.   Despite the new company environment, employees are off and running, fulfilling the technical and soft skill goals of the new assignment. Often, their talent and influence is welcomed.

For the employment agency client, a fulfilled worker with a satisfied and energetic attitude, adds stability, productivity, and innovation.  This successful match can enhance the company culture with the full time employees.  Additionally, when an employment agency client has a positive outcome with a temporary employee, assignment end dates can be extended.

Employees who seek that their values align with the mission statement of an employment agency are more likely to find a position that fits their career goals.  Employees can look to their employment agency as an advisor. Together, both parties work closely to align each other with the right client company to make the perfect fit. When Human Resources departments review resumes and observe the same employment agency on several previous employment positions, that’s a recipe of success. A good match between the employee and employment agency has been made.
