6 Tips for Hiring Seasonal Staff

1

Start the hiring process early so your seasonal staff is on board before business gets brisk.

2

Use your network of employees or trusted former employees, regular customers, and vendors to find candidates.

3

Be aware that labor laws, taxes, and certain benefits apply to seasonal staff. Check Colorado state labor laws, youth laws, and IRS regulations. Learn about major employment laws here.

4

Training and orientation are important. You'll get the most out of seasonal employees when they know the ins and outs of the job.

5

Stay in touch after these employees leave, especially the superstars. You may need them again, or for permanent employment.

6

Learn more about seasonal staffing using our databases or ask our experts.
