The benefits a company gains, thanks to engaged employees, are directly and indirectly measurable. When workers achieve their personal goals, an interest in self-development becomes widespread within an organisation. The link between effort and results is crystal clear and helps increase motivation. By satisfying employee needs, employers manage to retain an awesome workforce. If there is one direct way to ensure business sustainability through your staff, it is to ask them what they would like to improve and provide it for them.
Job security and the feeling of someone caring for them are among the most important concerns and demands of the workforce. Needless to say that four out of five employers say that retaining talent is top priority.
But what about temporary workers? Temporary workers are – in most cases, unintentionally – considered a different type of resource. A group that is deemed different from permanent employees in regards to what they deserve, aspire and expect from their job, despite the fact that temporary workers comprise a growing share of the workforce in dependent employment.
Temporary workers often experience a lack of security that increases psychological tension and the feeling of isolation since they don’t belong to a community.
The instability that comes from assignment or project-based work also makes it harder to learn and develop new skills, or even discover hidden talents. It is also a fact that temps are deprived of access to training because companies usually invest in their permanent employees whose productivity gains will be revealed in the long run. Less experienced workers find it quite stressful to have to learn new things to stay afloat.
Temporary work inhibits relationships where one might feel valued or recognised. Boredom and low self-esteem are consolidated when someone is assigned dull tasks that no one else in the organisation wants to do.
Since 2010, more than half of all new jobs in Europe have been through temporary contracts, which means that the way temps are treated should practically change if we do not want to face an “Everyone-for-themselves workforce”.
For us at Centralus, the key to any successful business has always been the human experience. Therefore, we designed solutions to increase engagement in the workplace for both temporary and permanent employees because every worker is worth it.
The perks we offer are usually reserved for employees of multinational companies. The goal is to reduce stress, increase happiness and help employers grow their businesses while showing their staff that they truly care for them. Temporary workers also feel valued and regain their work-life balance. Perks that reduce costs on leisure, health, travel and shopping immediately improve temps’ lives; relieving them of stress and allowing them to stay productive, happy and motivated.
The workplace of tomorrow focuses on employees and how actively they’re engaged. Regardless of their permanent or temporary contracts, customer engagement ensures strong and long-term relationships. You wouldn’t give a one-off customer less attention than you would give a loyal one; so why do that with your staff? Instead of a cold employment contract, the time and effort workers devote to a job should be rewarded, clearly showing mutual care Employers know that in order to secure their business growth, not only do they need to employ people with exceptional skills, but they need to retain them as well. These people acknowledge their value and are always prepared to sell their talent and competencies for bigger and better offers. They will certainly opt for the employer who responds best to their needs.
Centralus offers the golden opportunity for employers to thank their workers by offering them complimentary perks; creating a genuinely happy workforce, which inevitably reflects in their smiles everyday.
