How LACOSTA Services Multiple IndustriesSeptember 17, 2020
One of the core aspects of our business that we pride ourselves on at LACOSTA is our ability to serve a vast array of clients in a variety of industries, each of which has different needs and requirements. This versatility is not limited to our janitorial teams either, and also extends to our managed labor solutions for businesses looking for a better alternative to temp staffing.
In this article, we will talk about the wide range of industries our teams are trained to service, as well as how we maintain such a large selection of client service options.
Specialized Training Guarantees Expertise and Efficiency
At LACOSTA, we value and prioritize doing a job the right way. Many janitorial services have a one-size-fits-all approach to their client services, providing their employees with little specialized training and instead expecting them to adapt on the job by themselves.
Our approach is the exact opposite. In order to provide our clients with superior service, at LACOSTA, we emphasize providing our employees with superior training. This means that we train each and every employee specifically for the industry and client they are serving, and we have specialists for each environment in order to ensure the highest level of consistent and quality service.
This high level of training and the specificity of our approach is particularly important for our managed labor solutions. When clients sign up for our managed labor solutions, it is because they are trying to get away from the lackluster temp staffing solutions commonly offered throughout the United States. With temp staffing agencies, workers typically have very little training at all, let alone training in the specific industry they are working. This is because they could be working at a totally different jobsite in a completely different industry a week later! Oftentimes, temp workers will arrive on the jobsite and businesses will have to train them on the job. Since turnover is so high, oftentimes the same employee won’t be back the following week, resulting in a never ending process of inefficient and ineffective on the job training.
At LACOSTA, we provide our managed labor solutions employees with benefits and incentives that dramatically reduce turnover, allowing us to invest in their training and development both within the particular industry they serve as well as in a general career development sense. This means that when they arrive at your worksite, regardless of the industry your business is in, our workers will be trained not only for your industry but also for your specific site. Thus acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge to perform in a competent, effective, and efficient manner, adding value to your business and bolstering your operations. Naturally, this leads to much better service for our clients, and the results speak for themselves!
Another aspect of our versatility comes from the jobsite managers we place at each of our clients’ sites. Jobsite managers are a component of both our managed labor solutions and our janitorial services. These managers have been trained and have developed expertise in the industry they are serving both through our training and through years of experience. This means that they are able to become a valued part of the individual client’s team, working with site management , coordinating our operations, and ensuring that we not only meet but exceed expectations.
It is this level of attention to detail and the expertise of each and every one of our staff members that has made us an industry leader.
What Industries Do We Serve?
Due to the vast nature of our services and the number of industries we are able to service, it would be impossible to go into depth about each of them in one article. However, even though the industry may change, the results don’t. Regardless of the industry, our employees deliver the same, specialized, detailed, and precise work that they are trained to.
As an example, consumer products manufacturing is one of the industries where our company has really made a splash. Our managed labor solutions have helped put an end to costly and inefficient labor shortages for countless consumer products manufacturers, while our janitorial teams have been keeping their facilities clean for over 32 years!
One of the things we love about our line of work is that we are able to form incredible relationships with our clients that place an emphasis on adaptability, efficiency, and communication. In fact, we develop such strong working relationships that oftentimes our clients start with one of our services, such as janitorial, and add on another one of our services, such as managed labor, after they see our teams in action.
An example of this can be seen with a paper goods manufacturer we have been working with for over 15 years. They started out with our janitorial services and soon added on our managed labor services. Today, we have generated approximately $1.5 million in savings for them!
Here are some of the cornerstone industries that we have been working with and providing service to for decades.
- Consumer Products Manufacturing
- Industrial Manufacturing
- Heavy Manufacturing
- Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Food Processing
- Office Buildings and Campuses
- Universities and schools
- Hospitals and Healthcare
- Research and Data Centers
The list doesn’t end there though. We are constantly expanding, providing services to new industries and new clients.
Our Size Allows Us to Work in Every Industry
One of the great advantages of our company is our size. Since we began this journey over three decades ago, we have only grown, and it has enabled us to provide services to nearly every imaginable industry. Naturally, some industries are more demanding than others. After all, there is a big difference between a small college campus and a large food manufacturing plant.
Plus, our size allows both our janitorial teams and our managed labor teams to scale with our clients. That means, as our clients grow, we grow with them, helping them continue to yield the best possible results for their business, their employees, and their customers.
Being able to serve clients in dozens of different, unique industries is one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of our work. Indeed, there are always new needs facing our clients, and we can’t help but jump at the opportunity to adapt to them and serve them.
