On September 2, we hosted a webinar offering tips and best practices for recruiting seasonal workers in preparation of the busy holiday season. Every year, the holidays generate demand for extra ‘hands on deck’, and this fluctuation is especially felt by companies in the retail, call center, customer service, transportation and warehousing industries.
So – if your company is one that experiences a surge in business activity during the winter holidays, how do you prepare? Our expert panelists, Lauren Griffin (Sr. Vice President, Adecco Staffing, North Central Division) and Amy Glaser (Sr. Vice President, Adecco Staffing, Central Division) spent an hour discussing their “Top 10 Tips for Holiday Hiring.” If you missed the live webinar – have no fear – you can watch the full recording below:
During the webinar, our panelists asked the audience some poll questions about their own seasonal hiring needs. Take a look at the poll responses below:
Poll #1: What are your expectations for your company’s upcoming seasonal hiring volume compared to last year?
Poll #2: What are the top three challenges you see for the seasonal hiring surge in your organization?
