Staffing Support this September

Get the Shifts can help you with staffing support this September. In fact, it’s the best time to get set up!

September is one of our busiest months of the year as students head back to college, and the lead up to Christmas begins.

As the summer comes to an end, an influx of temporary staff return to the sector. Those involved in hiring and staffing for an establishment in the hospitality sector should consider the temp market.

This week, one of our office Superstars breaks down why September is the best month to organise staffing support for your business.

Waitress Serving Hors D'Oeuvres

You’re covered if your staff go on holidays

Your full-time staff have been rushed off their feet during summer, so the end of the summer season is the perfect time for them to take a load off and relax.

Many staff in the hospitality sector wither can’t or don’t want to take holidays during the summer, preferring to opt for travelling at off-peak times.

If your staff been working flat out during the tourist season, you may find they are more likely to fall ill or to call in sick.

During this off-peak season, temps will become invaluable to make up the numbers and cover any expected or unexpected absences.
