Seasonal Workers - Integrating the ZKTeco S922

Seasonal workers and their role on various industries

So, what are seasonal workers?

During busy periods, seasonal workers are brought on to provide assistance, with their employment typically lasting from a few weeks to a few months. As part-time employees, they are assigned fewer hours and are engaged on a temporary basis in response to the business’s need for additional support. Industries such as Agriculture, Retail, Hospitality, and Sales are recognized for their frequent utilization of seasonal staff. The demand for seasonal workers is at its peak during holiday seasons and for projects with a predetermined completion date. For instance, in the Agricultural sector, their services may be required during pre-monsoon and monsoon seasons, while in the Tourism industry, extra assistance is sought after during the holiday season.
