Do you have the right staffing partner? 3 ways to evaluate

April 3, 2020 Casey Nighbor

Is your staffing partner giving you what you need? Are you unsure of whether you’ve made the right choice? Learn a few easy ways to tell if your current staffing provider is a true partner in your operation.

1. They provide scalable, onsite support

Are you one of many companies assigned to a single management team? Do you feel like you’re competing for associates or that it’s difficult to scale up or down?

Imagine a staffing partner with a dedicated onsite team at your disposal whenever you need to adjust orders, make assignment changes or just have questions. Our onsite model provides the highest level of availability with the premium flexibility to ensure consistent delivery of a workforce that scales with your organization’s requirements.

Being onsite means you have a higher level of support and flexibility should the unexpected happen.

2. They prioritize safety and compliance

Safety should always be the priority of your staffing partner. A good provider creates a unique safety program designed to ensure safe work habits by your workforce and reducing your risk.

A staffing partner like Staff Management | SMX, performs daily safety audits on the floor so that your workforce is always safe on the job.

Compliance is also critical when hiring new associates. A good partner mitigates your risk with the proper certifications and procedures. Staff Management’s partnerships with key industry organizations, such as IMAGE, drive compliance to further protect our clients and their brands from risk.

3. They use powerful technology

Powerful staffing technology can bring your operation to the next level. At Staff Management | SMX we use Stafftrack. Stafftrack is a proprietary hiring and workforce management tool that brings in the right people at the right time. Our analytics drive dynamic workforce strategies, enabling faster, more precise hiring and continuously working to drive operational improvement and efficiency.

Our centralized services combined with our onsite operations teams ensure we are constantly monitoring candidate and worker flows.

If your current provider isn’t doing these things, it might be time for a change.
