Temp Staffing vs. Managed Labor in Manufacturing
End staffing shortages, increase plant output by 25% and reduce “all-in” labor costs by up to 30% – at least 15%, guaranteed
If we had a dime for every time we heard a plant manager complain about temps and turnover, we could buy our own private island.
Why then do plant managers put up with all the problems and pitfalls associated with the temp staffing model? Because they don’t know that a better solution exists: LACOSTA managed labor staffing solves problems that temp agencies create, and help plant managers achieve more KPIs.
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.
Temp Staffing vs. Managed Labor
LACOSTA’s managed labor staffing model is fundamentally different that temporary staffing. Since our model focuses on meeting specific KPIs related to the processes and output of your plant, our employees are cross trained with efficiency and “flow to the work” in mind. This often translates to a productivity increase of 20-30%.
Rather than simply dropping off bodies at your door for your team to train, re-train and manage (which can also lead to concerns with co-employment), LACOSTA employees are fully trained, cross-trained and managed by onsite LACOSTA managers who are invested in improving the flow and output of your plant
Though our hourly rates are higher than that of temporary providers, we guarantee at least a 15% savings versus your current temporary services spend because of our well honed processes and LEAN methodology.
