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.

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?
