Companies favour hiring temps

BETWEEN 5,000 and 10,000 workers in Slovakia are being hired out daily to firms by around 170 employment agencies, the Hospodárske noviny reported.

Companies see personnel leasing - the hiring of workers for a fixed period of time - to be a cost-effective and convenient way of operating. By using the services of employment agencies firms can take on workers according to their needs at any one time.

When firms need extra workers on a temporary basis, they can hire, and therefore pay them, only when they need to, Jaroslav Holeček of Volkswagen's personnel affairs management board.
