Permanent - Relief - Temporary Pharmacy Staffing
Most pharmacies can use an extra set of hands to handle the everyday workload, or fill a shift or two while an employee is on vacation. But most are reluctant to hire full-time staff. A staffing agency can provide temporary employees to help with a wide variety of tasks. Working closely with a staffing agency, a hiring manager can ensure that temporary workers possess the needed skills, education and experience to meet the needs of the pharmacy.
Try Before You Buy
Temporary employees give the pharmacy a chance to try out an employee before making a permanent offer of employment. In some cases, a person may have the experience and education for a job but simply does not mesh well with the environment. Having the opportunity to have the person work on a temporary basis first gives the pharmacy a chance to evaluate how the person will "fit in" with the culture and other employees. It also provides time to identify any weaknesses that would not typically be evident in the interview process.
Bringing in temporary staff to handle work overload can prevent employee burnout of full-time staff. When work schedules are overloaded, employees can quickly become unmotivated and overwhelmed. This can increase mistakes made as well as decrease productivity. Increased absenteeism is often a side effect when this occurs. Or, if your pharmacy is shorthanded due to summer vacations, illness, etc. temporary staff is necessary to handle the day-to-day tasks. By bringing in temporary staff to handle the extra workload or daily tasks, full-time employees can continue to focus on their main job tasks while maintaining productivity.
There are many benefits to using a Pharmacy Staffing Agency:
* Increase Flexibility
* Avoid Unemployment Claims
* Decrease Costs
* And sometimes just to keep the doors open when you do not have a pharmacist on duty.
