Summer Vacation – Coming to an Office Near You!

91% of full-time workers in the U.S. receive paid vacation through their employer, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research.  No doubt some of those employees work in your department or organization and plan to take a summer vacation or two in the upcoming months.

Do you have a plan in place to maintain workplace productivity throughout this summer vacation season?  At Roth Staffing Companies, we specialize in helping organizations not only make it through the summer months, but thrive and work toward their business goals during this period as well!

Our strategy includes:

  1. Uncovering your hiring manager’s unique perceptions of quality through Process Adapt™, our proprietary customer needs analysis tool.
  2. Using VideoSelect™, Roth Staffing’s proprietary video interviewing technology, to provide 3-minute video clips of the candidates who fit the hiring manager’s profile… saving you time and ensuring a great candidate fit!
  3. On-boarding selected candidates using our exclusive Ambassador Program that positions “Ambassadors” (the temporary employees who represent Roth Staffing Companies) for success.  They are ready to hit the ground running from their first day at your workplace!

It may be tempting to function with a skeleton staff when employees are on vacation, but this strategy can backfire if coworkers feel overwhelmed and unequipped to fulfill a vacationing coworker’s role, costing you productivity and business instead of maintaining it; the American Psychological Association has found that 51% of employees said they were less productive at work as a result of stress.

In addition, experts estimate that job stress costs the U.S. more than $300 billion per year in reduced productivity, absenteeism, turnover, and costs including medical, legal, and insurance expenses.

Spending the time and effort on the front end finding the right person to fill in for a vacationing employee may just save your employees’ mental health, sustain productivity, and save your department or organization money in the long run!
