Running a company with a cyclical business model or one that relies on seasonal employees has a set of unique and ongoing challenges.

Without a system in place to streamline the training and employee onboarding process, every new cycle and hire can feel like reinventing the wheel – and place an undue strain on management and company resources.

The Challenges of maintaining consistent training standards with a rotating team of seasonal and temp employees

Whether your management staff consists of two or hundreds of people, no two employees will approach the training process in quite the same way.

When your company relies on seasonal and temp workers throughout the year, this can create confusion, shortfalls, and redundancies even if everyone is working with the same training manual and protocols.

Common challenges many companies and brands face when training seasonal and temporary workers

Most people think of retail and the food and beverage industry when it comes to seasonal and temporary employees, but according to Salesforce, more and more businesses and brands are relying on seasonal and temporary workers across industries than ever. Whatever industry or niche your company or service provider operates in, if you rely on temp or seasonal staff, chances are your team has faced some of the following challenges:

  • Delegating time and resources to the hiring and onboarding process
  • Maintaining uniformity and consistency in your training program with multiple managers and different management and training styles
  • Logistical and administrative issues like storing and tracking contracts, invoices and employee communications and internal documents
  • Measuring performance and results
  • Creating and maintaining evolving recruitment standards
  • Scaling for company and revenue growth

If your company relies on hiring and training new staff every couple of months, automating some of the essential training and administrative tasks can save the company an untold amount of time and money, especially for smaller teams with fewer resources to spare towards training and re-training new employees on an ongoing basis.

Create a standardized and scalable training blueprint for your business

The average four-year college student will move at least as many times, often many more before graduation. As a dorm moving company, the Dorm Room Movers’ business model and hiring processes are as seasonal as it gets.

Faced with the challenge of hiring, onboarding and training new temporary workers with every new semester, the team at Dorm Room Movers decided to create a template and optimize their training program using the Trainual platform.
