April 11th, 2017

Temporary employees are often experts in your area of industry and can provide immense benefits because of their knowledge and also flexibility within your company. For all the positive effects they have on your company, it can be difficult to figure out how to motivate these temporary or contracted employees.

By implementing these four suggestions, you are making an invaluable investment in these workers and their productivity at your company.

Get them onboarded and trained.

The onboarding process is never one that you should just throw together haphazardly – regardless if the employee is full-time or temporary. Making your employees feel welcome is crucial. It sets the tone for how valued they feel within your company and boosts motivation to do their very best work.

They should also receive thorough training, making them feel a part of the team and also ensuring that their work is done to expected standards.

Communicate their potential for the future.

If you begin to realize ways you might need your temporary employees in the future, be sure to tell them. This could help boost their morale, but it also helps you forecast your needs and how they can be met. Ultimately, open communication can help everyone be more productive.

Immerse them in the company.

Including your temporary employees in company events and culture is a sure way to make them feel welcome, valued, and motivated.

It’s also a good idea to pair up every temporary worker with a full-time employee is a great way to help your workforce feel cohesive and keep everyone involved in both big and small goals or tasks. You should choose full-time employees who are excellent trainers, who are organized, friendly and are closely related in departments so they can help monitor performance and also be a resource for questions for your temporary staffers.

Provide simple incentives.

Incentives like gift cards or small cash bonuses is a sure-fire way to motivate your temporary employees. Tie those incentives to performance goals or tasks, and you will see that they value the reward. An extra tip: find out what interests them as an incentive so your plan is effective.
