How job seekers find work with a staffing agency

By | Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

Have you found yourself overwhelmed with the job search process? If you’re finding that you’re applying to dozens of jobs without success, maybe you should consider expanding your search. While many companies post their job listings online there are others who do not post their open positions. Instead, these companies choose to have a staffing agency fill their open positions. Using a staffing agency is often quicker and prevents the company from having to go through the pre-screening and hiring process.

Specialized staffing agencies like Forge Industrial Staffing get to know the personality and skillset of each job seeker they work with. By understanding who you are and matching you with the agencies’ vast database of companies and listings, we can often place a new hire in far less time than traditional methods.

We can assist job seekers in a number of different situations.

Temporary or contract work

Often when a company chooses to use us for hiring, they opt to bring in the employee on a temporary basis. This allows the employee and employer to determine if it’s a good match. The company may then decide to offer the employee a permanent position if they feel the employee is a good fit.

With contracted work, a company will bring in employees for a set amount of time, or month-to-month. These types of positions typically do not evolve into permanent positions.

Direct placement

In many cases, companies will build a relationship with us to recruit top talent when it becomes available. Often referred to as a “headhunter,” we seek out well-qualified talent that we believe will help a company grow.

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 the right employees for you.

No matter where you are in your job search, whether you’re just starting out or you’re just looking for a better opportunity, Forge Industrial Staffing has hundreds of positions to meet every need. Experience the Forge difference today and see how we are Changing Lives, One Job at a Time.

Espanol

Hello!

Our life outside of the workplace may not be as busy as it was pre pandemic however we still need to make sure we are moving around.  More often our personal time is spent in front of the TV, laying on the couch, sitting around taking in more screen time, etc.  Here are a few ways to get more active to help in your everyday body movements.

  1. Stretch every morning when you get up and every night before bed.
  2. Walk in place or around the house during commercial breaks.
  3. Walk in place or do light yoga during your favorite tv shows.
  4. Take 5 min breaks to do the above during screen time.

Every little bit of movement outside of work can make a huge difference when you are on the constant move during work hours.

Advantages of Using a Staffing Agency

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

The need to fill new employee positions and handle employee turnover is a constant challenge for growing companies. Many companies are finding it more cost effective to use the services of a professional staffing agency instead of an in-house human resources department. It does not matter the type of employees needed; staffing agencies provide a number of important advantages.

Experience

A professional staffing agency has more experience than many human resources departments. The process of hiring employment specialists as well as getting a manager to properly supervise human resources staff takes time, effort and money. A staffing agency is able to compete with the employment specialists in any company. It can provide what is needed at a lower cost.

Network

A staffing agency is only focused on providing the right employee for the desired position. It does no other work. This level of focus enables it to develop and maintain a large network of available workers. Should an employer need seasonal workers, it would need to advertise the positions, interview potential employees, process all of the required documentation for a short employment period. When this same company uses a staffing agency, it will work with an organization that has an established network of workers with proven track records and are looking for short-term employment. An agency will be able to provide the necessary staffing quickly and at a reasonable cost.

Less Risk

When a company uses a professional staffing agency, it will get the workers it needs and not have to pay any human resources overhead. It’s possible for a company to have a person work for it for a period of time before they commit to hiring. During this time, the company has no liability. The staffing agency deals with payroll taxes, workman’s compensation insurance and unemployment claims. If the company doesn’t find the person’s work acceptable, it can easily ask for another candidate.

Cost Effective

A company will be able to get the employees it needs at an affordable cost. It will not need to provide any benefits unless it hires the employee. Many companies use temporary staff to decrease overtime costs paid to their full-time employees. If a company has a busy season each year, a staffing agency will be able to maintain a database of previous employees and prepare to meet any additional staffing needs each year.

Increased Productivity

When regular staff is required to put in overtime for an extended period of time, it can have a negative effect on a company’s staffing levels. It could lead to low morale, decreased motivation and increased employee turnover. Using employees from a staffing agency can help lower the need for overtime and help retain important employees. It can help increase productivity and decrease a company’s downtime.

 

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 the right employees for you.

No matter where you are in your job search, whether you’re just starting out or you’re just looking for a better opportunity, Forge Industrial Staffing has hundreds of positions to meet every need. Experience the Forge difference today and see how we are Changing Lives, One Job at a Time.

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

When it comes to your business, nothing is more important than staffing. Hiring the right individuals with the correct skill sets is a necessity in today’s competitive marketplace. Whether you work in industrial labor or a law office, finding the right people to employ can be demanding. When you’re busy with other aspects of your business, it can also be overwhelming.

This is why companies come to Forge when they need help with staffing. Whether it’s staffing 400 temps in one week or coming up with the perfect person at the very last minute, Forge does it all. We understand how urgent such needs can be, which is why we treat every request with the utmost respect. Forge understands that clients are often pressed for time. Billing is made incredibly easy, allowing clients to focus on what matters most — moving their businesses in the right direction.

Forge treats each and every client as a VIP, drawing upon years of experience to fit together each piece of the puzzle. With a knowledgeable team that understands all of the different sectors it serves, Forge exceeds client expectations daily, surprising businesses with the depth and breadth of its expertise.

Forge has even managed to win over some of the most notoriously discerning clients –human resources managers. These employment experts have been complimentary about Forge’s services, often commenting that it is rare for a temp agency to continuously uphold such a high level of service over the years. Part of the reason for this is Forge’s communication strategy, which encourages clients to reach out about their specific needs and address any concerns immediately.

Also, it is rare for a temp agency to maintain such comprehensive knowledge about so many different industries. From industrial labor to corporate hiring, Forge can do it all. When you read the client testimonials of people who have been working with Forge for a long time now—some over 2 decades—the consistent theme is one of dedication and innovation. Forge believes that temporary employment can be a wonderful opportunity for both clients and new employees.

However, Forge also realizes that there is a special art to selecting the right individuals for a temp gig. By working hard to understand the culture of each and every company they service, Forge is able to make an accurate assessment and then produce the right person or people for the position. With so much at stake, it makes sense to only put your trust in the best company for the job, Forge.
