Staffing Companies Keep the Workforce Going in Manufacturing

Blog, Featured Stories, General Information, Hiring Tips and Advise, Industry trend, Market Review, Resources

With fluctuating demands for product and workforce, manufacturers benefit from the flexibility offered by staffing companies. Temporary employees, also known as contingent workers, allow manufacturing companies to find both skilled and unskilled workers to fill empty positions when they’re reluctant to expand their permanent workforce. Choosing the right staffing company can help you reduce labor costs while meeting increased demands for manpower to keep your business going.

Why You Need Temp Help

The manufacturing industry is notorious for frequent ups and downs in production based on increased sales during busy seasons and large, unexpected orders. Hiring contingent staff fills your temporary need for more employees, while also providing you future access to trained workers for full-time, permanent positions. This saves you from searching for outside candidates, because choices within your temporary staff will already be vetted on the job and have proven value to the company.

Benefits of Temp Staffing Services

When you hire a staffing company, the expense is offset by the savings in labor costs. Your recruiter matches workers who’re a good fit with the unique skillset you require for a given position. This takes away the worry and cost of recruiting new employees, interviewing potential candidates and screening them for possible hire. All pre-employment requirements, such as background checks and drug tests are handled by the staffing company. This not only saves you money, but also provides you with the extra staff you need quickly, because pre-screening requirements have already been completed.
Finding the right staffing company can help keep your manufacturing workforce going when you don’t have enough manpower to meet higher production demands. Experienced companies who specialize in your particular industry have the ability to scale your workforce to meet higher labor demands during peak operation and provide qualified candidates whenever you need them. When it’s time to downsize your workforce, you won’t have to deal with layoffs and unemployment issues when you let your contingent workers go.

Conclusion

Manufacturing companies who utilize staffing companies can better manage all their labor needs. When you have gaps in your production line, you may overwork your existing staff and risk causing lowered employee morale. By filling these gaps with contingent workers, you’re not only able to meet production demands, but you also keep everyone happy by providing them with the help they need to get the job done on time.

What skills are employers looking for?

Blog, Hiring Tips and Advise, Industry trend, Resources

According to the U.S. Department of Labor in January 2016, the number of unemployed persons in the United States was approximately 7.8 million, with an unemployment rate of 4.9%.  Job seekers are facing a job market where competition for an open position is higher than ever. With such stiff competition, employees must present themselves well and be certain to highlight their talent in the skills that employers value most.

The Skills Employers Are Seeking in Prospective Employees

  • The ability to work well on a team with diverse members
  • The capacity to make firm decisions quickly
  • The skill of creative problem solving
  • The ability to communicate effectively and efficiently both inside the organization and with external stakeholders
  • The ability to plan and prioritize work without constant supervision

>Showing Employers You Have Those Skills

Interviews are usually fairly brief.  Chances are you will not have longer than an hour to explain or demonstrate these skills. That’s why you need to have communicated how strong you are in these areas before you even interview via your cover letter and resumé. Whenever possible, give specific written examples demonstrating these skills. Introducing these sought after skills in writing and then elaborating on them during your interview will show employers that you have what they want!

The New Trend: College Graduates are Using Staffing Companies for Great Employment Opportunities

Blog, Featured Stories, Fun Cool Facts, Industry trend, Resources, Staffing Industry Facts

While you may still hear lots of news about the challenges recent college graduates face in finding employment, more and more have discovered a great opportunity to begin their professional lives by joining a staffing company. For new graduates, in particular, there are numerous advantages to make use of employment agencies.

The opportunity to experience a variety of options before committing.

You’re going to have plenty of time to hone your skills to one specific profession. But as you’re just beginning your journey into the professional world, there is no better time to gain firsthand experience in numerous industries and roles. While you may have tried out numerous courses in college, the best way to get an accurate reading of what you most enjoy doing and what you are best at, is by actually doing it.

It will give you an edge

Oh those dreaded words: entry-level. You probably know that means you’ll be competing against thousands of other applicants for each and every job. Why not skip the line, and gain valuable experience that will look great on your resume? By making use of a staffing agency you’ll be able to be simply placed into positions, skipping the application process. Then, if you do decide to apply to a specific position later you’ll be head and shoulders above the rest of the pack, because you’ll have hands-on experience in the profession.

It leads to career opportunities

You’ve got your degree, and you know that you have so much to offer the right company. But so often, it’s just about getting in the door. Even the best cover letter in the world can’t express how great an asset you in the same way that a company being able to get to know you in person, and seeing you do your job. Starting out in a temporary position just might be the perfect way to land the job of your dreams.

This spring an entirely new class of college graduates is entering the job market. Watching the news can make you feel like predictions for professional success are dire. And while it is true that as a new graduate you’ll be competing not just against this year’s graduates, but those from the previous years who are still struggling to find the right job. It can seem overwhelming, but right now more and more graduates are realizing there’s an alternative to sending out hundreds of job applications and hoping to win the lottery. By making use of a staffing agency like Just in Time Staffing, graduates are skipping the unemployment and heading straight into professional experience, where an entire universe of exciting opportunities awaits them.

BUILDING A TALENT PIPELINE THAT “RE-RECRUITS” TALENTED WORKERS IS ESSENTIAL.

Featured Stories, Hiring Tips and Advise, Industry trend, Staffing Industry Facts

Getting candidates’ attention has gone from hard to harder — not to mention sustaining that attention for more than mere seconds. Today, you need to keep your candidate flow strong with a continuous and thoughtful recruitment process rather than a one-and-done strategy

Resolution for 2015: Capture more candidates and reduce drop-off by continually engaging your potential talent. The key to workforce planning is all about creating and nurturing a database of pre-qualified candidates so they’re ready to be contacted and called in to interview at any moment.  An easy-to-find, branded talent network will help you capture and re-engage more candidates over a longer period of time, as it works behind the scenes to send members targeted job alerts when your new positions are posted.

Did You Know? 65 percent of candidates are likely to accept a future staffing firm assignment.

What this means: It’s great to see how many candidates are willing to accept a future assignment with staffing firms, and the reason for a majority that’s not likely to accept a future assignment is about wanting permanent work. Despite misconceptions about reasons behind candidates’ unwillingness to accept future assignments, for a majority of candidates it’s not about the pay or recruiters or other factors, but about wanting a permanent/full-time job.

Staffing and Recruiting Grows Faster Than the Economy and the Labor Market

Industry trend, Market Review, Staffing Industry Facts

More than six years since the end of the Great Recession, the U.S. economy has yet to fully recover. While there has been expansion, this long road to recovery has been erratic. And although the jobs lost during the 18-month recession have been regained and the unemployment rate has declined, the percentage of people participating in the labor force has dropped to the lowest level in four decades. There are nearly six million open jobs, and more than eight million people out of work—contributing to the longer than anticipated recovery cycle. Meanwhile, the staffing and recruiting industry has been growing faster than gross domestic product and overall employment at rates unlike any prior recovery. Are these trends unique to the current expansion, or has there been a fundamental change in the role of staffing and recruiting in the economy?
