Summer means backyard barbecues, long walks on the beach…and more employees going on vacation. Having temporary medical staff allows current full-time staff to take much-needed vacations without leaving the company in a tough position. Here are three reasons to contact Odyssey Staffing about your temporary recruitment needs before the hot weather hits in full force:
Accommodate Your Staff
Medical employees work hard day in and day out and deserve a break to rest and recharge. One of the best reasons to hire temporary medical staff is that it allows you to accommodate your full-time team members during the summer months when vacations and family reunions are commonplace. Make sure you staff up early, as you can expect lots of requests for time off when the mercury soars, and you don’t want overworked health workers abandoning you for your competition.
Protect Your Patients
When doctors and nurses leave for their summer vacations, the workers who remain behind are often expected to pick up the slack. Not only does this cause a great deal of stress and resentment, it also has a negative impact on patient care. Hiring temporary medical staff protects both your patients and your facility.
Prepare for the Unexpected
While it’s common for employees to take vacations during the summer, health centers never know when a staffing shortage will strike. For this reason, it’s valuable to maintain a relationship with a quality medical staffing company. A reputable recruitment business can not only find you great candidates, but also perform a thorough screening process, so you know your staff is truly top-notch.
