Recruiting contract workers provides a range of advantages that can be tailored to both short-term and long-term business requirements. Some of the key benefits associated with hiring consultants or contract workers include:
1. Instant Impact: Experienced workers bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to the table, allowing them to seamlessly make an immediate impact. Their prior expertise and familiarity with the job’s demands means they are able to adapt quickly, with less time spent on orientation and training.
2. Reduced long-term labor cost: Hiring contract workers can be more cost-effective than hiring permanent employees. Clients don’t have to worry about any costs or time associated with benefits, taxes, or payroll – J. Morrisey takes care of it all, resulting in lower overall labor costs.

Our contract workers often bring specialized skills and experience that can immediately impact your business.
4. Flexibility: Contracted workers adapt to changing market needs and varied environments. Whether meeting seasonal demands, cover absences or handle special projects, hiring on a short-term basis will help our clients assess any long-term needs and highlight areas requiring extra support.
5. No Long-Term Commitment: Our clients aren’t locked into long-term commitments with contracted employees, enabling ample time to asses performance, work ethic, changes in business needs, and cultural fit.
6. Alleviating Workload: Contract employees can help alleviate the workload of existing staff during peak periods, preventing employee burnout and maintaining productivity. In turn, this can increase staff retention, improve company culture and increase productivity.
7. Access to a Large Pool of Talent: J. Morrissey has access to a vast pool of pre-screened, pre-vetted candidates, making it easier for our clients to find the right fit for the role, quickly.
8. Diversity and Inclusion: Hiring contract workers from diverse backgrounds can bring fresh perspectives and ideas to the workplace, contributing to a more inclusive and innovative work environment.
