Temp-To-Hire vs. Permanent Placements: What Are Their Benefits?

January 25, 2023

When it comes to sales placements, organizations often face the dilemma of hiring a permanent or temporary-to-hire employee. Each option has its own advantages, and making the right decision can be challenging. This blog will discuss the differences between temp-to-hire and permanent sales placements and their benefits.


Temp-to-hire is an increasingly popular hiring strategy for organizations looking to find the perfect fit for a job. This approach has become a great way for organizations to “try before they buy”, giving them a chance to evaluate a worker’s performance, skills, and attitude before committing to hire them full-time. Here are some key benefits of temp-to-hire and why it’s a great solution for many organizations.

1. Cost Savings

Hiring a temp-to-hire employee can save an organization money on hiring and training a new employee. Instead of investing in a full-time employee immediately, organizations can use temp-to-hire to save money while evaluating potential employees.

2. Reduced Risk

Temp-to-hire also allows organizations to reduce the risk of taking on someone who may not be a good fit for the organization. Organizations can better understand how they will fit in with the team and the company culture by evaluating the employee during their temp-to-hire period.

3. Flexibility

Temp-to-hire also provides organizations with more flexibility when it comes to hiring. Organizations can use temp-to-hire to fill in staffing gaps or cover for a vacationing employee. This approach also allows organizations to find the right fit for the job without committing to a long-term contract.

Permanent Sales Placements

Permanent sales placement is a great way to increase sales and maximize the potential for success in your business. It allows for a more consistent flow of customers and the ability to increase customer loyalty and satisfaction. Permanent sales placement has numerous benefits, from increased sales and profits to improved customer relationships.

1. Consistent Flow of Customers

One of the biggest benefits of permanent sales placement is that it allows you to keep customers coming back. When customers are familiar with a store, they are more likely to return and become loyal customers. This increases the chances of repeat sales and helps to build customer loyalty. Additionally, customers are more likely to remember the store and recommend it to friends and family if they have a positive experience.

2. Increase Customer Loyalty 

Permanent sales placements also help to maximize the potential of a store. By investing in permanent sales placements, businesses can ensure that their store is seen and noticed by potential customers. This increases the chances of customers coming in and making a purchase. 

3. Reduce Costs

Permanent sales placements can also reduce costs. Businesses can save money on advertising costs and other marketing expenses by investing in permanent sales placements. This can lower overhead costs and maximize profits.

Which One Is the Best for You?

Organizations must consider their needs and budget when deciding between temp-to-hire and permanent sales placements. Temp-to-hire is often the more cost-effective option, as the organization is not taking on the full-time commitment of a permanent employee. It also allows the organization to test out different workers before making a decision. On the other hand, permanent sales placements offer more stability and a more selective hiring process.


The decision between temp-to-hire and permanent sales placements is a personal one that depends on the organization’s circumstances. Organizations should carefully evaluate their needs and budget before making a decision. With the right approach, organizations can find the best candidate for their sales team, whether a temporary or permanent employee.
