In a world of talent shortages and economic instability, the ability to hire the right temporary workers at the right times is crucial. But a company can only recruit as quickly as their on-demand staffing platform supports.
Handling everything from compliance to performance, the best on-demand service is that which makes managing temporary workers as pain-free as possible… And yet the search for the right platform can be a challenge in itself.
That’s why, in this article, we look at five questions you should ask before choosing another platform. These will help you find a solution that can support you as you scale.
A great on-demand staffing solution should support both ongoing and last-minute needs. And that means a thorough, but efficient vetting process is essential. To find out whether a partner can help you hire high-quality temporary workers at speed, ask questions like:

It’s one thing to hire temporary workers fast and another for them to meet your requirements in the role. An effective on-demand staffing platform will handle performance management as well as the talent acquisition process (recruiting, vetting, onboarding, processing, and hiring). You should also ask whether the platform includes attendance and time-tracking tools.
To keep costs down, you need an on-demand staffing platform that is transparent about both their fees and processes, and data. Data transparency through dashboards, reporting, and real-time tracking is essential for hiring managers to track progress and cost efficiencies.
