With the changing times in our economy and especially the labor force, employers must stay keen to the trends of employee preference and needs. As a new generation emerges into the labor force, of course, there is a new trend surfacing with regards to the conventional work schedule. According to recent studies, Millennials desire to embark on a journey of jobs rather than sit at the same desk from 9-5 for the rest of their lives. They want to be a part of an influential team and make positive changes rather than just get credit for showing up in the morning. This desire needs to be captured by employers and used to their benefit. By hiring temporary work from this up and coming millennial generation it will infuse new and creative ideas that can grow a project rather than keep it stagnant. A fresh young mind can bring in a new perspective and revive old static ways to give your project just the boost it needs. And when it comes to employing an efficient and bright workforce, fluidity and interchangeability are key. Therefore if employers can create a diverse and balanced team full of both full-time and temporary personnel they should generally have a greater level of productivity.
