Most employers find the fall hiring season as the busiest time of the year. You may have hired students temporarily over the summer to fill in staffing gaps. Now, as fall approaches, they are headed back to school and you’re in need of more workers.

In light of this reality, you may be asking yourself, “How can I get ahead of fall hiring?”

There are several things you can do right now to get ahead of fall hiring, such as partnering with a staffing agency, extending contracts, and streamlining your hiring process.

1. Partner with a Staffing Agency for the Fall Hiring Season

There’s an old saying, which goes “why wait to do tomorrow what can be done today?” It’s certainly a question hiring managers should ask when it comes to the fall hiring season. There’s no reason to wait until fall to start seeking out candidates.

One of the best things you can do is join forces with a staffing agency like Liberty Staffing. The agency partner can make it easier than ever to hire the right people when you need them. When you’re faced with a busy season for hiring, working with a staffing agency can help you stay ahead of the curve.

2. Extend or Renew Contracts When Possible

Do you have great temporary workers already on staff? Do their contracts expire at the end of the summer? Maybe you hired a few great summer students. You’re wondering how you could keep them on, even part time, into the fall.

Extending or renewing contracts for temporary workers who have already proven themselves can save you from some of the challenges of fall hiring. These employees have already demonstrated their work ethic and skills. Liberty Staffing Services can work with you to ensure the contracts are renewed in time for fall.

3. Streamline Your Hiring Process Before Fall Arrives

Now’s the time to take a look at your hiring process and make sure it’s ready for the busy fall hiring season. Think about how effective your hiring process was in the spring. Were you able to hire people quickly and easily? How many applications did you receive? Was it easy to sort through them?

These are all questions to ask yourself as you review your hiring process. There may be ways to improve on an already great hiring process. By evaluating the process now during the summer and making changes to the process before fall hiring arrives, you can be ready to tackle whatever challenges the peak hiring season may present.

Working with a staffing agency can also help you streamline the process. The expert staff at Liberty Staffing can help you revise job descriptions, reach a wider audience, administer tests, and conduct interviews.

There are many different ways employers can begin preparing for the fall hiring season right now. If you’ve been wondering how to get ahead of the curve, take one or all of these three steps.

Partner with Liberty Staffing. You’ll be ready for fall hiring season long before it arrives.
