When hiring for an open position, whether skilled or unskilled, it can be overwhelming to see the vast amount of resumes and applications that you'll likely receive. How do you pick the right candidate? Do you go with the candidate with the most impressive resume? Do you pick the person who has the most years in warehouse and manufacturing experience? What if you hire someone with a flawless resume, but find that while the applicant you chose met all the requirements on paper, when it comes time to do the job, they're needing a lot more training than you feel they should? These are the exact reasons why we use pre-employment testing in our applicant screening process.
When it comes to staffing your warehouse or manufacturing facility, your initial focus may be just making sure you’ve got enough heads to man every position so that hopefully deadlines get met. Unfortunately, just filling a position with anyone willing to work can ultimately cost you time and money in the long run. It pays to find employees who want to show up and want to help your business. Those employees that see the value in helping you grow (which in turn, helps them grow), are the type of employees you want manning your warehouse.
Action Logistix specializes solely in staffing for the warehouse and manufacturing industries. What separates us from other staffing agencies is our pre-employment testing. Due to our dedicated recruiting for positions like forklift drivers, material handlers, machine operators and production/assembly workers, we have a number of excellent workers ready to be placed for new long-term assignments! Furthermore, we can help reduce your overall costs in a number of ways that in-house hiring can't! Check out a few of the ways we can save you time and money:
Finding skilled reliable talent for the warehouse and light industrial industry has always been a significant challenge. But that challenge is amplified in a candidate-driven market like the one we're experiencing now. Hiring well will always be difficult. Fortunately, there are multiple strategies that we at Action Logistix implement to ensure we're providing employees who can help increase productivity, eliminate workplace distraction, while reducing your turnover rates, saving you time and money in the long run. Here are just a few ways we can help accomplish those goals:
As many warehouse and plant managers already know, staffing can be an HR nightmare. You've got minimal time to ramp up manpower for upcoming project deadlines, and it probably feels like you're spinning your wheels, but not gaining traction. As a solution, you might have decided that hiring a staffing agency to fill those voids is the best option for you. But will any generalized staffing agency work?
Most staffing companies can staff any position ranging from administrative/clerical, accounting and light industrial. So, you may be asking yourself 'what makes Action Logistix different and why is it important to work with a specialized logistics staffing provider?' The answer is simple, really. 100% of our weekly interviews are dedicated to light industrial industry staffing compared to generalized staffing firms that need to interview candidates for positions such as customer service, administrative assistant, accounting clerk and light industrial.
