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 Type||Full-Time Employees Paid by W-2||Paid per Day, Sometimes Even 1099s|
|Consistency of Employment||Permanent 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 Level||Low to high with onsite supervisors and managers (skills 1-4)||Low and medium (skills 1 & 2)|
|Industry Focus||Manufacturing labor experts: heavy, light and pharmaceuticals||Labor generalists|
|Impact Focus||End labor shortages, increase output, achieve plant KPIs||Provide warm bodies to plug holes|
|Hourly Rate||Often 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 Needed||7-10 (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)|
