While it may be too early to finalize wish lists, dinner menus, and wrapping paper, it’s never too early to think about (and plan for) the upcoming season and its impacts on your workforce.
This is the time of year when your organization is focused on recruiting, hiring, scheduling, and managing the extra hands joining your team for the busy upcoming weeks. Maybe you’re welcoming back employees who have been part of your seasonal workforce before and already know the ropes. Maybe you’re welcoming all-new team members for the very first time. Maybe this is your organization’s first year of getting “back to normal” where seasonal work is once again needed.
No matter what, your teams are about to go through some changes and see some added work come their way. Wouldn’t it be nice to have best practices in your back pocket to handle these adjustments? Well, you’re in luck! Hop over to the Seasonal Employee Resource Center where you’ll find a variety of resources that offer advice to help you navigate those holiday hurdles.
