According to Statistica, 13.6 million temporary staff were employed in the US alone in 2022. Fortune 500 companies like Capgemini to industry leaders like Microsoft, count on the recruitment agencies to meet their voracious need for temporary employees.

What started in the late 1960s and early 1970s as a smart strategy to fill in for permanent employees when they took time off has now ballooned into an indispensable part of running a successful business. Well, if you haven’t guessed it already, we’re referring to temporary/contract staffing. The term “temporary staffing” often metamorphoses into “consultants”, “fractional executives” or “interim executives” when it gets associated with highly skilled professionals who fill leadership positions.

Regardless of whether one calls themselves a temporary staff or an interim executive the essence of this staffing strategy remains unfazed. Temporary staffs are valuable employees who perform their job roles for a specified period with a pre-determined termination date. Companies rely upon recruitment agencies in Dubai for temporary staffing mainly when there’s-

  • A shortage of permanent workers
  • An increase in business activities
  • A surge in seasonal demand
  • Emiratization

5 Reasons Why Companies Rely on Temporary Staffing
