Staffing for Canada Week
Staffing for Canada Week is upon us once again. It’s an annual celebration that gives us the opportunity to recognize the many contributions of Canadians who are employed through staffing firms. At Adecco, we know that our outstanding temporary associates are the reason for our success, which is why we’re proud to give over 9,000 people a chance to work at great companies every week.
Here at Adecco, we recognize the valuable contributions that temporary workers make to our clients. Whether it’s providing support during peak periods of increased business or additional assistance to ensure projects meet their deadlines, temporary workers are often the unsung heroes of a business. So this week, we take a moment (and some blog space) to acknowledge the MVPs of the staffing world: temporary workers.
People make the difference
Talent is the multiplier. The more energy and attention you invest in it, the greater the yield. – Marcus Buckingham, Author and Business Consultant
Good employees are a company’s greatest asset. Their hard work not only keeps a business alive, it helps the business thrive. After all, employees are the ones who know the business inside and out. We believe that recognizing our temporary employees for the contributions they make — not just during Staffing for Canada Week, but throughout the year — helps empower workers to truly make a difference within their organizations
How we value our associates
How do we show this appreciation for our temporary associates? It’s simple. We treat all our associates like the top candidates we know they are. This includes a competitive compensation and benefits package, which enables our associates to take control of their careers, while providing them with the flexibility to find the right position, hours and wages to fit their lifestyle. But it also includes the small things — follow-up calls and reward programs show our appreciation throughout the year.
Consider temporary work
Looking to rejoin the workforce or get a foot in the door? Want to work for great companies with the flexibility to be selective about your next job? Then temporary assignments might be for you! With temporary work, our associates can take advantage of the high levels of personal flexibility and the opportunity to try on various hats to develop transferable skills that short-term assignments offer. Plus, they get to pick the right position that enhances their professional and personal lives.
This week, as we celebrate the contributions temporary associates make to Canadian businesses, join Adecco in saying: Thank you!
