2018 Construction season

Blog, Featured Stories, Fun Cool Facts, General Information, Uncategorized

The reports are in and the construction industry is expected to continue to grow throughout 2018. As both the residential and commercial sectors continue to expand, one thing is certain — employers will need to hire valuable workers. This fact is especially important in an industry that has seen a slight decline in the number of workers in the past few years, which is exactly why employers should use a staffing company.

How Can A Staffing Company Help?
The latest forecast from the Associated General Contractors of America shows that both the number of projects, as well as the level of hiring, are expected to increase in Ohio and Pennsylvania. In fact, 95 percent of companies in Ohio anticipate hiring within 2018. Of this 95 percent, 26 percent of companies plan to expand their workforce by more than 10 percent. In Pennsylvania the entire construction industry is expected to increase by three percent.

A strong 2018 construction season means that employers will need to hire a wide range of workers. Reports also indicate that there will be an increase in the number of power, sewer, retail, manufacturing, and warehouse commercial projects, while multifamily residential projects will continue to gain moment. Like attempting to put a square peg into a round hole, the wrong match can lead to project delays and lost funds. Fortunately, through an efficient, yet thorough process, staffing companies are well equipped to find the right employer and employee matches. A staffing agency can:

  • Save employers time and money by providing candidate screening and interviewing services.
  • Find seasonal, temporary, and long-term placements.
  • Reduce overhead costs for employers.
  • Efficiently connect employers with a pool of over 250,000 potential candidates.

Make 2018 The Year You Work With A Staffing Company
As Ohio and Pennsylvania prepare for an increase in the number of construction projects, employers will need help finding skilled workers. Just In Time Staffing is a full-service staffing agency ready to help connect employers and employees. Contact a team member today so that your company can thrive during the 2018 construction season.

In fact, with more than 12 million workers employed in March 2017, manufacturing remains the fourth largest employer in the entire country.

However, in a rapidly evolving job market, finding the right workers to improve your manufacturing efforts is made easier with the help of a staffing company.

Key Statistics Show The Continued Health Of The Manufacturing Industry
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of various goods, the United States reached record industrial outputs of approximately $2.18 trillion in the third quarter of 2016. Throughout 2017 the industry continued to strengthen in various sub-sectors. Experts predict that the trend will continue into 2018. In fact, certain geographic areas, such as Ohio where over 690,000 people are employed in the state’s manufacturing sector, have shown significant growth.

  • In the second quarter of 2017 there were approximately 7.6 million gross jobs gained within the manufacturing industry.
  • From December 2017 to January 2018 there was an estimated additional one percent increase in the number of manufacturing jobs.
  • Current industry average salaries range from $28,250 for production workers to $65,120 for purchasing agents (excluding wholesale, retail, and farm products).

As the industry continues to evolve and grow, employers and employees can both benefit from working with a staffing company who is dedicated to finding the right employment solutions. In fact, a staffing company is best suited for helping to connect workers to manufacturing employers by reviewing resumes, discussing viable skills, conducting interviews, and offering helpful industry workshops.

Manufacturing Continues To Be A Strong Industry In 2018
The experts agree that manufacturing will continue to innovate in the coming year as it positively responds to changing factors within Information Technology and supply chain management.

Employee turnover is an important statistic

General Information, Hiring Tips and Advise, Staffing Industry Facts, Uncategorized

Employee turnover is an important statistic for staffing firms—it tells you how often you will need to hire new employees. A high turnover rate means that your employees average a shorter tenure with your firm; when the turnover rate decreases, average employee tenure goes up. What does this mean for your firm? The lower the turnover rate, the less money your firm spends on recruiting, new-hire administrative costs, training, and any other costs associated with replacing employees. Lower turnover could mean increased profit margins for your firm.

The turnover rate for your company tells you, on average, how many times a single position within your company was occupied by a different employee throughout the year. Suppose you had one position and one person filling that position throughout the entire year, your turnover rate would be zero—there was no change in the person employed in the position throughout the year.

Calculating Turnover

If you had one position and two people had filled that position throughout the year, your turnover rate would be 100%. This is calculated by taking the number of people employed (two in this example) and dividing it by the number of positions or jobs (one in this example), then multiplying the result by 100. Next you must subtract 100—this 100 accounts for the person who is initially employed in the job: 2/1=2*100=200-100=100

You can calculate the turnover rate for both your internal, permanent staff, and also for your temporary and contract employees. Be sure to calculate these two turnover rates separately, as they are typically very different. In order to calculate your company’s turnover rate you first need to determine your company’s average daily employment (for internal employees or for temporary and contract employees) and the number of W-2s your company issued throughout the year to employees for the employee type for which you are interested.

In most temporary or contract staffing firms, the number of temporary and contract positions available fluctuates each day. Calculating your company’s average daily employment will help you to determine how many positions your company filled on an average day over the course of the year. You can calculate your company’s average daily employment by determining how many employees your company had on the week that included the 12th of the month for each month in the year, summing these employment levels, and then dividing the sum by 12.

Once you have determined your average daily employment, you need to determine how many temporary and contract employees you had throughout the year. The quickest and best measure of this is the number of W-2 forms that your firm issued to temporary and contract employees for the year, since each employee will be connected to exactly one W-2 regardless of the number of positions they held.

Once you have these two numbers, you can calculate your company’s turnover rate for temporary and contract employees using the following formula: (total number of W-2s issued/average daily employment*100)-100 = turnover rate.

You can use this same calculation to determine the turnover rate for your internal employees, as well.
