Staff Management, the industry’s leading provider of sustainable temporary staffing and contingent workforce management solutions, has been featured as an authority in large-scale seasonal hiring in articles for holiday job hunters on Bankrate.com and Glassdoor.com. The coverage coincides with Staff Management’s fourth quarter hiring ramp of over 12,000 seasonal associates and as the company reports that it has surpassed all previous employment records; paying a record number of associates the week following the Thanksgiving holiday.
Bankrate.com featured Staff Management positions as a good alternative to traditional retail holiday positions. Staff Management clients, who include some of the world’s largest retailers, third party logistics providers, online retailers and consumer goods manufacturers, rely on temporary associates to staff during their holiday peak seasons.
“Our clients increase their workforce by as much as 100% during the holiday season,” says Joan Davison Chief Operating Officer for Staff Management. “These seasonal manufacturing, distribution and fulfillment center jobs can offer a great alternative to retail positions as they often pay more than retail jobs and can offer additional benefits,” continued Davison.
Glassdoor.com sited benefits, like the ones offered by Staff Management, as good reasons, in addition to higher pay rates, for holiday jobs seekers to consider positions in fulfillment and distribution. Benefits like referral bonuses, gas card programs, sign-on bonuses for hard-to-fill shifts, weekly gift card drawings, attendance and safety incentives, and retention incentives. Additionally, Staff Management associates are eligible for medical benefits on day one, get paid weekly and have a good chance of working overtime hours during the holiday season.
“Beyond the tangible benefits, the excitement generated working on these fast-paced holiday projects creates a great sense of community and camaraderie amongst our associates,” says Davison. “Our associates genuinely have a good time at work and our staff works really hard to keep associates happy and motivated through the holiday season rush. We conduct automated associate surveys on the floor using netbooks to gauge how our associates are feeling about their position and our staff, as well as their satisfaction with things such as the environment, pace and safety program. By soliciting their feedback in real time we are able to address concerns quickly and continually improve our associates’ experience,” continued Davison.
On December 8, 2010, Staff Management reported that as a result of fourth quarter hiring activity for this holiday season the company has surpassed all previous records set in its more than 22 year history for number of associates paid in a week. Davison announced this achievement to all staff on Wednesday and thanked the Staff Management team for the hard work, long hours and dedication that it took to achieve this milestone.
