Smooth Sailing, From the Start
Our highly trained implementation experts are dedicated to ensuring that all of our program implementations support our client’s organization to the fullest – from establishing initial program objectives to effectively transitioning operations from an incumbent provider to transferring duties over to our onsite teams that manage your contingent workforce on a daily basis.
Once our onsite staffing program is in place, we develop a governance strategy in close collaboration with our client. Strong post-implementation governance ensures that our program is achieving its goals and is able to adapt, scale and respond to changes that may impact staffing needs.
You’re One of a Kind
That’s why we’ll never draw from a general talent pool when we recruit for your workforce.
Instead, we use precision recruitment strategies to tailor our recruiting to meet your unique needs. We develop a targeted recruitment strategy using customized behavioral interview guides while continually refining the strategy to yield the optimal workforce. By monitoring key statistics to understand hiring ratios and track the efficiency of recruiting sources, we’re able to zero-in on the sources that deliver the best candidates.

Components of an Efficient Managed Services Solution
Drive Efficiency & Accountability Beyond KPIs
Partnering with Staff Management | SMX places responsibility and accountability for production results on us. Traditional staffing programs work from a short list of key performance indicators (KPIs). We manage staffing, production and quality, end-to-end, through a proven process that is consistently monitored and reviewed to ensure optimal ROI.
Via these outcome-based solutions, our clients outsource responsibility for specific functions or departments while maintaining operations within their facilities. We become responsible for production results and integrate into your value stream to drive efficiencies, lower costs and positively impact the outcome. Our performance-based pricing models guarantee productivity and lower overall costs – we get paid based on the result, rather than the labor, that we deliver.
Pay for Results, Not Labor Hours
Outcome-based pricing, also known as price per piece (PPP), offers you a significant opportunity to realize efficiency gains and cost savings. Rather than billing you for labor hours worked by our associates, we bill the you for our output, regardless of labor usage.
Whether we are billing based on production rates, pallets processed, routes completed, calls answered or another performance metric, outcome-based pricing is an effective way for you to migrate to a more fixed-cost environment. This model creates a win-win for you and Staff Management | SMX with both parties working towards the same goal – a highly efficient operation.
Pay Rates Based On Performance
Pay for performance (PFP) or gainsharing pricing models can be effective strategies to improve productivity and quality and ultimately to cut costs. Developing and delivering solutions that align pay with performance is a strategy to that helps you remain competitive and drives program value.
PFP programs are based on the premise that pay is one of the greatest motivators. The idea is to pay the associates for their work while allowing high performers to earn significantly more than lower performers. This provides associates with a financial incentive to perform better than before and directs outcomes that are important to your organization such as improved productivity and reduced rework. When effectively administered, PFP plans can increase individual productivity significantly and lower variable labor cost per unit produced.
