Hiring a temporary staffing associate is a great way to try out a potential new employee before extending them an offer of employment. It’s also a great way to implement a new position before creating a new role. During a probationary period, the temporary employee’s performance can be evaluated and a decision can be made on whether he or she should continue as a staffing associate, be hired full-time, be replaced or terminated.
