Why you should consider hiring students for you summer employment needs:

Being a seasonal employer has its benefits. Check out some pros of hiring students in the summers below.

  2. Also, students are eager to work and learn. In addition, they are trainable and reliable, learn quickly, and are flexible.
  3. By hiring students, you can build a pipeline of future employees. For example, students may work in your warehouse or office for the summertime, but they could return to be a future full time dedicated employees.
  4. Plus, the costs of bringing on a full-time employee can add up fast. Benefits including Medicare, workers comp., healthcare, insurance, and 401(k) plans—usually adds an additional 18% – 20% to a base salary. Your company can benefit by payrolling summer students through ABR!

Because seasonal workers are employed for a short period of time, use your peak season to test out employees. If your business only operates part of the year, you can see which employees you want to rehire the following season.

Overall, there are many advantages to hiring students to supplement your summer workforce needs and can help provide a real benefit to your organization’s bottom-line. Thus, there’s a real advantage to pursue sourcing students to supplement your summer staffing needs.
