With the increasing modulatiry of the modern workforce, what about taking the idea of a temp agency one step further?
So, what's the solution when there's a job when you absolutely need to get a job done, but just don't want to go into work today?
Have someone else do it! A 'replacement'
agency - you need someone to replace you at your job for a day, they're brought up to speed on all current projects, and go in to work in your stead, preparing a summary to give to you at the end of the day so you can resume tomorrow as if you never left.
Especially a money maker if your workplace will only work with certain 'certified' agencies...
Temporary employee ID badges
Our security staff in particular need to be able to rapidly identify an employee as temporary or non temporary. [LoriZ, Dec 27 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]
||i love the idea. Who would pay the replacement agency? Since temp agencies often receive a commission in addition to the actual temp's salary, the absentee worker may operate at a loss. However, it would be worth it to avoid getting canned for laying home hung-over.
