Whose Interest Comes First?

Temp agencies are driven to place as many people as possible at your site, even if you don’t really need them. They focus on “fill rates” and “fill times” but have turnover rates of 100% to 400%. With our managed labor approach, our KPIs are aligned and our employees are incentivized to end staffing shortages, increase your plant’s output, flex up and down based on need, and to find additional ways to cut costs and add value.

Point of Comparison LACOSTA Managed Labor Temp Staffing
Employment TypeFull-Time Employees Paid by W-2Paid per Day, Sometimes Even 1099s
Consistency of EmploymentPermanent employee to the job, site and LACOSTA with upward mobility and a career path Variable, maybe onsite next day maybe not; if onsite for 30-90 days, either transition to you with conversion fees, or terminated; temp employees will leave if can make $0.10/hr. elsewhere because they have no benefits, no future and no career path
Skill LevelLow to high with onsite supervisors and managers (skills 1-4)Low and medium (skills 1 & 2)
Industry FocusManufacturing labor experts: heavy, light and pharmaceuticalsLabor generalists
Impact FocusEnd labor shortages, increase output, achieve plant KPIsProvide warm bodies to plug holes
Hourly RateOften about $13-$14/hr. “all in” (includes everything below)Often $11-$12/hr. but closer to $14-$16/hr. “all in”
# Workers Provided When 10 Are Needed7-10 (we typically increase productivity by 25%+ and need less people with cross-training; we staff for 115-120% and succeed)15-25 (if more show up than are needed, have to pay additional employees at least four hours even if you send them home; several don’t show up the next day/week; staff for 100% and fail)
