Allen Associates’ Temporary Workers' Week 2016

Allen Associates’ Temporary Workers' Week, which runs from 20-24 June, celebrates the significant contribution which temps make to the businesses they work for as well as the wider economy.

ALLEN ASSOCIATES’ TEMPORARY WORKERS’ WEEK LAUNCHED

Allen Associates Temporary Workers Week (20-24 June) which celebrates the important contribution temps make to the businesses they work for as well as the wider economy.

According to the recruitment industry body, the REC, demand for temporary workers is higher than ever with increasing numbers of businesses looking to temps to support their growth or cover extended periods of absence. There is also a suggestion that the EU referendum has affected confidence, with many businesses delaying their recruitment decisions until the In-Out question has been answered.

Kate Allen, Managing Director at Allen Associates, said: “We are delighted to highlight the hard work and commitment of our temping community through our Temporary Workers Week, which we are running for the second year. The temps market in Oxfordshire is stronger than ever and we feel it is important to highlight the significant role temporary workers play at all levels, whether it’s providing administrative support, managing a busy HR project or acting as an interim director.

BUSINESSES INVITED TO NOMINATE THEIR STAR TEMP OF THE YEAR

Allen Associates is marking its Temporary Workers Week by calling for nominations for its annual Star Temp of the Year award. The annual award is open to all businesses employing a temp through Allen Associates.

Kate Allen, Managing Director of Allen Associates, explained: “If one of our temps is doing an exemplary job, we’d love you to nominate him or her for our annual Star Temp of the Year award. This award recognises the huge contribution that temps make to businesses and the quality of work they do, often at short notice, in a new environment, among unfamiliar faces and under challenging conditions.
“Your nomination will help us decide who should be our winning temp in 2016. We already have a good idea as to which temps are making the most valuable contributions but what’s missing is that all-important client feedback, so we’d love to hear from you.”

The winner will be presented with a £250 voucher for the Michelin-starred Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxford.

Businesses interested in nominating their Star Temp should complete and submit the short online form which is available here. The closing date for nominations is the 15th July and the winner will be announced the following week.

MAKING A CASE FOR TEMPING

Eleanor Wells has always used temping to support and bolster her career and help her to achieve her personal aspirations. Here, she talks us through her experiences and explains why temping has always worked for her:

“Throughout my career, I have always found temping to be very advantageous. I originally trained and worked in agriculture but after 10 years, I knew that if I was to ever get on the ladder with regard to earning enough for a mortgage and having a decent holiday overseas, I would need to take the huge decision to leave the outdoor life and join what I then considered to be 'the rat race'..."
