CASE STUDY #1 : Staffing Numbers Reached by Engagement of Bear Staffing
Client : A large manufacturing company
in a secondary Pennsylvania market was implementing a new process.
Fill Eighty (80) temporary
with qualified candidates that possessed the right skill set.
There had been three
industrial staffing firms
selected to provide the high number of workers required.
The firm had not used temporary staffing in these types of positions before.
The Issue : The use of temporary
workers was paramount to the success of this new process. After several months,
the company was not getting enough QUALIFIED workers who had the required skills
to perform the task at hand.
The Process : Applicants who could
pass a physical exam as well as a written test consisting of math, reasoning and
mechanical testing, did not have any disqualifying criminal offenses and could provide
references that could be reached were only considered.
Our Approach : In the “Strategize,
Segment and Swarm” process, we first analyze the needs & requirements. Then our
team meets to decide what activities will create the applicant flow needed to produce
the necessary results. Once the process has been defined, it is broken down into
segments and assigned to different Bear Staffing team members. Many of these segments
are performed by people in our other offices with a “ground lieutenant” coordinating
the efforts. This segmented but coordinated approach is then able to produce a swarm
of applicants quickly.
Results : Within 6 months, Bear
had become the largest supplier. Two years later, the client was quoted as saying
they received more people, better response and higher quality personnel than they
received from the other suppliers.
