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.

Machine Safeguarding – Hazards and Safe Practices

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

Machine Safeguarding – Hazards and Safe Practices

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Objective: To communicate common machine motion hazards and basic safety practices employees should always follow when working on or around machinery

————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Machinery is a major source of injury. While employers are responsible to establish safeguards to protect employees, it is essential to follow safe practices to avoid injury.

 

Motion Hazards

– Pull-in hazards can grab and pull loose material like clothing and hair. Causes include rotating parts or in-running nip points.
– Caught-between hazards can catch the operator between two moving parts or between a moving part and a fixed object. Causes include punching parts.
Cutting hazards can be caused by sharp machine parts like table saw blades.

 

Safe Practices

– Only operate machines that you are fully trained and authorized to use.
– Only use machines that are properly maintained and in safe working condition.
– Only use a machine the way it is designed to be used and according to all the manufacturer’s safety requirements.
– Tie back loose hair and do not wear loose clothing or jewelry around machinery.
– Keep fingers, hand, arms, and clothing clear from all moving components.
– Assure that all safeguards are in place before operating equipment.
– Never remove, modify, or bypass guards.
– Before starting, assure people are clear of the moving parts, and warn them it is starting.
– Never reach into any hazard area or moving portion of a machine for any reason, including removing a blockage or for maintenance, without first implementing proper lockout/tagout.
– Always turn off machines when you have finished using them.
– Notify supervisors if a machine is not working properly.

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.

Forge Tips for Going Green This Spring

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

When it comes to living a green lifestyle, many find it can be difficult to maintain good habits at work. Did you know that you can practice this lifestyle inside of work as well as outside? No matter where you work, there’s always the opportunity to make your office a little more earth friendly. Forge is always looking for new ways to, “go green” within the workplace. Here are a few helpful tips to help ensure that your company is doing everything it can to reduce its carbon footprint.

 

Recycle

Talk to the maintenance and operations personnel at your company to find out where all of those bottles and cans are going. If they’re not going to a recycling plant, then make it your priority to take them there yourself. If there’s not already a place (bin, box, etc.) to put recyclables, start one. By creating a designated area to place recyclables, you’re encouraging others to start recycling as well by making it easier for them to place their plastic somewhere else besides the trash can.

 

Pack a lunch using reusable containers

Packing a lunch with reusable containers eliminates the need to throw away the unnecessary packaging that comes along with buying a lunch. Instead of having to throw away extra packaging every day for lunch, think about using reusable containers to bring your lunch to work. Nowadays many of these containers are microwave friendly. If you are unable to bring your lunch and have to buy a lunch, you can still help the environment by recycling the packaging afterwards.

 

Swapping out paper cups

It can be difficult to get off the paper cup train, but making an effort to use the same reusable cup every day can inspire others too. Over the course of a year, you’ll have saved hundreds of paper products by simply using your own mug and/or reusable water bottle. Make sure you are bringing in a reusable bottle and not a non-reusable bottle. Bringing in a non-reusable bottle defeats the purpose of eliminating plastic waste.

 

Reuse Paper

Before tossing a sticky note, or piece of paper into the recycling bin, consider whether the other side can be reused for scrap paper. Why waste a perfectly good piece of paper, because you only wrote on one side of it? Another thing to think about is printing paper. When you’re printing out documents that are longer than one page, ensure that you’re using both sides of the paper when you’re setting up the document print format on your computer.

 

Going green within your company doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to be a drag. Sustainability in the workplace can be fun and easy, and it can provide excellent new ways to bond with your employees.

Fulfilling Your Staffing Needs with Forge Industrial Staffing

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

People who have started a successful company or run one, know that one of the most important skills to have is determining when to defer to someone else that may be more knowledgeable, and have the experience and resources. In regards to staffing needs within a company, a staffing agency may be the best, and most beneficial option.

Staffing agencies are a great solution for companies that need to fill large orders, are experiencing a busy season, or need help with an expansion.

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.
