Limitations of Traditional Staffing for Labor Shortages.
Labor shortages are increasingly becoming a big concern for manufacturers and energy companies, especially throughout the Midwest where unemployment is low. Traditional staffing models source skilled labor from within a certain radius around the facility that needs workers. In states with low unemployment, there are limited skilled trades workers available so all companies and local staffing agencies are competing over the same limited resources. As a result, staffing agencies are providing more unskilled workers resulting in high turnover, training fatigue, and increased costs.
Fill technical manufacturing and maintenance positions with experienced Machinists, Welders, Maintenance Techs, Industrial Electricians & other skilled trades
Deploy a large number of qualified temporary workers on demand to respond to production backlogs, prevent lines from going down, or add entire shifts to a facility
Provide onboarding and on-site management to ensure employees are on-time and on-task every day
Onboard large-scale industrial workforces efficiently with short acclimation periods
Deliver employees who pass thorough background checks and drug tests
Traditional staffing agencies aim to lower the cost of labor by restricting their search to your local talent pool. This constraint means that any shortages in the quantity or quality of local labor becomes your shortage.
Open positions requiring specialized skillsets, a lot of experience, and advanced certifications are especially difficult for traditional agencies to fill on demand. So when you need skilled temporary workers on short notice, traditional agencies are forced to “throw bodies” at your open positions -- bodies that may not have the skills, experience, and qualifications to meet your production needs as quickly as you like.
It gets worse...
Open positions can go unfilled when replacements aren’t available locally. This results in additional losses to productivity, revenue, and time.
Left unchecked, your decline in productivity creates an opportunity for your competitors who aren’t facing the same labor shortages.
Now imagine the difficulty traditional staffing agencies have staffing an entire shift, facility, or multiple facilities with suitable replacements. Your open positions are even more likely to be left unfilled, or filled with unsuitable replacements.
And the negative impact to your productivity and revenue is magnified.
Bottom Line: The cost savings by recruiting locally are more than offset by losses in productivity and revenue.
By broadening your search to a national talent pool you can have access to more experienced industrial manufacturing workers and can source larger numbers of them more quickly.
