Get Instant Access to Your Money on Pay Day

By | Tips for Employers, Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

One of the many benefits of employment through Forge Industrial Staffing is getting paid weekly. We understand how important your finances are to you, so instead of waiting 2 weeks or more to get paid, our employees are paid on a weekly basis. We also understand that it’s not always possible to stop in the office to pick up your check on payday, so that’s why we offer the option of direct deposit and paycards.

PayCard by Mastercard gives you the opportunity to have access to your money instantly the morning of pay day. Instead of having to stop in the office for a physical check, or setting up a bank account for direct deposit, you can have your pay automatically deposited to a paycard that can be used the same day.

By having the paycard you are eliminating the hassle of stopping in the office to pick up your check, standing in line to cash it, the check-cashing fee that comes along with that, and more importantly, losing your check.

PayCard allows you to have access to your money when it’s convenient for you. Use the card at an ATM to get cash, or use it to shop at your favorite stores, including online. You can also use the paycard to pay bills and get cash back at participating merchants. Use the card wherever Debit Mastercard is accepted.

There’s no cost to enroll and there’s no credit check required. For more details about paycards, please contact your local forge office.


At Forge Industrial Staffing, we pride ourselves on having the resources of a large-scale staffing agency while having the personal touch of a specialty agency. Our qualified staff will work with you to find the right job, or right employees for you.

The Importance of Employee Satisfaction

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

Employers should always be trying to keep their employees happy. Every dissatisfied employee represents lost productivity if they stay and a disruption of production schedules if they leave. There’s no magical solution for companies keeping their employees, but it can be beneficial for them to understand the importance of maintaining their employees satisfaction. By following these tips, you’re more likely to retain your best employees by increasing their overall work experience and satisfaction.

 

Show Your Appreciation

When an employee does a good job, let them know you noticed. This doesn’t necessarily mean public praise, or handing out gift cards. No question, financial recognition is sometimes in order, but a sincere expression of praise and appreciation whenever it’s deserved can go further than cash awards or large gestures. There is no question that people tend to do their best work when they are actually being recognized for the time and effort they have put in.

 

Make Meetings Two-Way

Staff meetings should be for staff as much as for management. Though meetings are normally for giving out information, use meetings to also collect it. Obtain input, comments, feedback, suggestions – and criticisms, complaints and problems. Be honest and open, and assure those who have negative input that it’s being accepted for a positive purpose. Of course you’re not promising to take action on every complaint or suggestion, but you do have to sincerely consider the issues.

 

Make it Possible to Do Good Work

Many complaints center on the difficulty of doing the job well. People actually want to do good work, but they can’t if they’re struggling with poor tools, inadequate direction, or disruptive task scheduling. Satisfying your employees’ needs in this respect will result in improved product or service quality and enhanced productivity, and that should boost your bottom line directly.

What to Consider When Using a Temporary Employee

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

Companies will always have use for temporary employees, that’s no question. Whether it be a few extra hands for a new project, or a fill-in employee when someone is gone; a temporary employee is usually the way to go. Just like hiring a normal employee, the process of hiring a short-term one can be quite tedious. The best option for a company is to look into a staffing agency, such as ourselves, to take care of your hiring needs. With our knowledge of your company and our vast database of people who are looking to work, we can guarantee that the process will be a smoother one. There are a few things you should consider when deciding to use a temporary employee.

The Cost of Hiring

Many companies don’t realize the cost of hiring an employee, whether that be a temporary or full-time employee, until they’ve started the process. There is some sort of cost associated with each aspect of the process, such as, the cost of job ads, job fairs, the time spent to look through resumes and online applications, the fees associated with background checks, and the expenditure of training a new staff member. For someone who has multiple other tasks on their plate, it doesn’t make sense to waste the time or money handling the process alone, especially when it’s on a short-term investment.

The good news is that temporary employees don’t require the same benefits as permanent employees. In most cases, it’s cheaper to hire temporary employees for short-term assignments. So, why wouldn’t you look into using a staffing agency to handle this process? By working with Forge, you can save time and money by letting us handle all of the details of hiring a temporary employee, such as implementing the background checks and filling out all of the necessary paperwork.

Safety Concerns

Safety should be the number one concern when hiring temporary employees. It’s important to make a safety a priority for everyone, but because a temporary employee is only there for a short period of time and is usually thrown into the mix, safety precautions can sometimes be put in the back of your mind. There are going to be projects and jobs that are dangerous and it’s important to ensure that the temporary employee has all of the necessary safety training in order to perform their job tasks. You never want to assume that you’re employee knows exactly how to handle a hazardous situation because they’ve worked in a similar environment before.

It’s important to go the extra mile in making sure your new temporary employee has the knowledge to be successful within your company. Forge Industrial Staffing understands your company’s wants and needs. We want to ensure that your temporary employee is an adequate fit for your company, so that the experience as a whole is a good one for the both of us.

At Forge Industrial Staffing, we pride ourselves on having the resources of a large-scale staffing agency while having the personal touch of a specialty agency. Our qualified staff will work with you to find the right job, or right employees for you.

Once you’ve found people interested in the position, you have to weed through them by interviewing them and seeing who would be most qualified for the job. The whole process can take up valuable time that could be focused somewhere else within the company, so why not eliminate the process completely?

Tips to Motivate your Employees

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

Have you ever noticed that volunteers tend to work harder than paid employees? This may be because of the satisfaction they feel knowing their work is appreciated. Part of the issue in today’s work environment is that employees feel undervalued and underappreciated meaning they aren’t as willing to put their all in their work. Motivated employees have long-term benefits for a company, such as saving you time hiring and training new people, but in what ways can managers motivate their employees?

 

Recognition

Part of an employee feeling undervalued and underappreciated is that they don’t feel recognized for their contribution to the company. There is no question that people tend to do their best work when they are actually being recognized for the time and effort they have put in. It is important for employers to give more recognition This doesn’t always mean paying the employee a bonus or giving them a raise; sometimes it’s just as simple as making them employee of the week/month and recognizing them publicly.


Responsibility

Trust plays a big role in the relationship between an employer and employee. Employees who know their employers trust them will put in their best effort to keep that trust and work harder to build that trust further. With trust, comes responsibility. An employer who trusts their employee will more than likely give them more responsibility. Employees who have more responsibilities are more willing to rise to the challenges that are set in front of them.


Creativity

Employees have ideas and creative intuitions too, so why not let them express it every once in a while? Not every job is going to require employees to be creative, but no matter the job, the employer should still spend some time listening and showing interest in what ideas the employee has. There ideas may not be the best for the company, but at least you took the time to show that you care about their input. The employee is going to be more motivated knowing their ideas for the company are valued.

 

Building relationships with your employees

An employee isn’t going to work as efficiently if there isn’t a relationship established between them and their employer. It is important to build a relationship with employees as they are one of the important factors to why your company runs in the first place. Showing interest in their work and valuing their effort can build that relationship. This will remind them that they are indeed appreciated.
