If you’re filling the gaps in your warehouse or production plan with temp workers, you’ve experienced these issues – and no amount of pleading, coaching, or threatening can change your experience.
The staffing agency model simply isn’t set up to match your needs on the floor or in your budget.
Issue 1 - Lack of Quality
You’re getting bodies that are paid by the hour just for showing up. They’re poorly motivated, and there’s little you can do to change that when you’re working with an agency.
Issue 2 – Body Shop Mentality
The staffing agency is just going to send you “people”; as long as a human agrees to show up, they’ll send them. That’s how they make money. The fit for the actual role in your operation is a distant second or third requirement. And, all of the training falls to you and your team along with the burden to get them productive.
Issue 3 – Little to No Value-Add
Little to no value-add: The agency doesn’t have time to invest in understanding your business – their job is to source people and put them somewhere, not consult on the best way to help you.
Issue 4 – Their Business Model Conflicts with Yours
Their business model conflicts with yours: You’re trying to drive labor costs out of your operation and increase productivity while they place people on a cost-plus model – which means they make more money running UP your labor costs. Overtime? Great for the Agency – but not for you. Rework? More billable hours for the Agency – but not so great for your budget. There is ZERO alignment with their business model and your operation.
Issue 5 – Co-Employment
Like it or not, in the eyes of the law Temps are in effect your employee already. A whole host of legal issues – sexual harassment, wrongful termination, hostile work environment, etc. – leave you and your company at risk of messy and time consuming lawsuits. Injuries are recorded on your OSHA-300 log and count towards your Worker’s Comp mod rate.
