How to Turn a Temporary Position into a Permanent One

Temporary work is not what it used to be. It’s more than just a short-term gig. A temporary position is an excellent chance to prove yourself, to build relationships with everyone at your assignment, to gain new skills and to learn about a company. Contracts are often now extended based on project length, business need, and proof of a skilled and committed worker. Companies are constantly struggling to find skilled employees who know the business and who are eager to make a difference. Once they see a temp worker’s potential, it’s possible to convert a temporary position into a long-term contract. This blog provides a few tips to help get your foot in the door, then prove your value as a long-term employee.

OSHA Changes for 2018 You Should Know About

OSHA has made some changes that will impact how work gets done. Now that certain employers need to electronically submit injury and illness data that is already recorded, job candidates who understand the new requirements will have an instant value add to their new company. The change is meant to improve safety for workers in the U.S. and to better understand behavior and motivation around injury reporting. The new rule, which originally came into play last January, requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data that they are already required to record on their onsite OSHA Injury and Illness forms. This data is used to enable OSHA to use its enforcement and compliance assistance resources quickly and efficiently. Some of this data is posted to the OSHA website, as OSHA believes that public disclosure will encourage employers to improve workplace safety and do their best to reduce incidents. To make sure your employer understands how you can make a difference for them in 2019, see how your potential role can benefit from more in-depth OSHA knowledge by reading the full blog.
