Temporary staffing highlights social responsibility

With the aid of the Temporary staffing 2015–2019 framework agreement, Hansel’s customers can acquire personnel for positions that don’t require public officials, such as office, administrative, ICT, and catering services.

Tendering for temporary labour requires an understanding of the sector’s special characteristics, so that the result of a tendering would not be unsatisfactory from a social responsibility perspective.

In Hansel’s experience, the productivity of temporary labour in public administration increases through flexibility and adaptability, not through excluding the benefits of agency-hired personnel. In the tendering process for hired labour even greater attention has been paid to social responsibility and the status of hired personnel.

In the framework agreement, the compensation paid to agency-hired personnel is at least that paid under collective agreements. Multiplier pricing offers customers transparency in gross wages for agency-hired personnel. This pricing model also reduces incentives to lower the wages paid to agency-hired personnel.

When it comes to benefits, all agency-hired personnel that are employed for four months or more are covered by both statutory occupational health care and GP health care. Customers may also offer the same benefits to agency-hired personnel as they do to their own personnel, such as sports or luncheon vouchers, with pass-through invoicing and without a contract suppliers’ margin.
