We pride ourselves on the ability to place a great worker in a job that’s uniquely suited to their skills. As a part of CRG’s professional staffing duties, we often deal with “temp to hire” positions. This means just what it sounds like. It’s a temporary job that turns into a full-time position. There are actually more than a few benefits offered by these types of jobs, which is why they make up such a big part of our work.

Less Worry About a Bad Hire

If you’re an employer looking to fill a new position, you know that it takes a lot of time and effort. You have to sort through resumes, go through multiple interviews with each prospect, and decide on the best candidate. After all that, sometimes your instincts fail you and the worker you choose ends up being a poor fit.

That’s a lot of time, money, and energy wasted on a bad hire. If you work with staffing partners and look for someone to fill a temp to hire position, you could have better luck. Someone else is doing that work and filtering out the best employees for you. If they end up not working out over the course of their temporary assignment, no big deal. Just talk to your employment recruiters and try out another person for the position. If they work out, you can make them a full-time employee. It can just be a more efficient way to find the worker that you need.


It Can Be a Resume Booster

If you’re a worker, temp to hire positions can be beneficial for you as well. A temp to hire position that turns into a full-time job is obviously the goal, but even if you don’t get the job you could get a boost to your resume. You could get new experience or work with new tech in a temp to hire position, ultimately improving your chances when you apply for that next job.


More Flexibility

Temp to hire jobs can also provide more flexibility for companies and workers alike. Putting out a new temp to hire role can help a company determine if they actually need a new worker and if potential employees are actually a good fit for their company. Instead of offering someone a full-time job and later realizing that they’re not needed, an employer has a worker in an experimental role for a set period of time and can tell if they ultimately need them full-time.

Instead of getting hired and thinking your job hunt is over, only to start looking again in the next few months when a company decides you’re not needed, a temporary position is only going to last a set period of time. You know that going in, so it doesn’t throw you off if you’re ultimately not hired on. Then you can go back to a staffing agency and try out a different role.
