Why hire for project work through a warehouse staffing firm?

October 12, 2020

Most staffing firms are "one-stop shops" for anything from admin to janitorial to the C Suite, to production talent. A specialized warehouse staffing agency, on the other hand, helps only warehouse, light industrial, logistics and production companies with their hiring and staffing needs, including permanent and project-based work. What does this mean? It means having a "just-in-time" pipeline of pre-screened, higher caliber talent ready to get to work.

When your company is running a few hands short, a specialized warehouse staffing firm like ours can help you fill in these gaps in less time than you’d take otherwise. And when it comes to project work, we help companies with much more than that.

Here are three reasons why you’ll want to work with our St. Louis production staffing firm for your next project.

1. Make quality hires

Only a few staffing firms like ours specialize in certain industries or role types, which gives us years of experience in finding the best candidates with the attributes you’re looking for — and maybe even a few you didn’t even realize you needed.

Our expertise allows us to source the best people needed for the job at hand. This removes the need for you to screen dozens, or even hundreds, of applicants by yourself. We’ll do it all for you.

Additionally, when you work with us, you’ll benefit from our pre-employment testing practices as well. We screen applicants for qualities like attention to detail, culture fit, and the ability to drive a forklift — well before you receive your list of qualified candidates.

This practice eliminates 25-30% of applicants, ensuring that you receive a higher caliber worker which improves production and reduces turnover while also saving you time and money in the process.

2. Hand off responsibility for training, payroll, and offboarding

Training and offboarding alone take up significant time and effort. If you’re constantly hiring for new projects, these activities alone can overwhelm your HR department.

When you work with a production staffing agency like Action Logistix, that responsibility becomes ours. You’ll no longer need to spend valuable resources training someone who will only be with your team for a few months. And when the work is done, we’ll manage the offboarding as well.

We handle the intricacies involved with payroll, worker compensation, employee benefits, filing garnishments and unemployment claims. This relieves you of a time consuming burden to shoulder, giving you the freedom you need to focus on getting the job done.

3. Access to a wider network of qualified candidates

Over the years, we’ve grown and honed our talent pools to carry only the most skilled and qualified applicants for almost every warehouse distribution and fulfillment role. All you need to do is say the word, and we’ll go through our pipeline to find the best candidates for your project.

On the other hand, if you were to do this on your own, you’d be limited to the people in your company’s networks and the applicants for any job posting you put out. That severely limits the potential for your project’s success.

We’ll help you find the right fit for your team — and in less time too.
