How Employment Agencies are helping Toronto Businesses

webadmin@staff247 September 19, 2017 0

Businesses that involve manufacturing of products or even recycling products, they know that they can only compete in the market if they have two things under control. These two things are              1. Quality and  2. Cost

If the quality of your products is high enough to compete with those of your competitors then you have chances that people and/or businesses would buy from you. However, Quality does not ensure this solely. Better pricing is vital too when it comes to competing in the market. In other words products with higher quality yet competitive prices stay out among their competitors.

Both quality and pricing are directly related to the manpower which in fiscal terms translates to labor cost. In Toronto and its surroundings, there are a lot of manufacturing business be it auto-parts manufacturing, bakery products, plastic products, windows manufacturing and even apparel production plants. These businesses normally produce for both Canadian as well as American markets. The reason that their production facilities are here is that Toronto provides skilled yet inexpensive labor. This drives the costs down without compromising the quality.

It is very understandable that it can get difficult for businesses at times to afford both salaries along with all other benefits in seasons when sales are shrinking. Putting this simpler, companies bear labor costs even when there is no production needed or if lesser production is required to meet demand. How to tackle this challenge? Well, here comes the role of employment agencies. Employment agencies in Toronto, know the fact that not all quarters of the year provide the same opportunities for business, therefore, recruiting through staffing agencies, employer get to avoid extra or unnecessary labor costs when the demand is low. Staffing agencies provide this service to businesses to hire temporary labor for the time they need it and then lay it off whenever they want.

This temporary labor service comes with yet another benefit and that is, companies don’t have to spend a lot of time and money in hiring chunks of workers. They can simply ask an agency to fill up the labor demand and they’ll do it. This is how businesses can ensure both quality and competitive prices at the same time.

FALL HAZARD

webadmin@staff247 September 15, 2017 0

INTRO: Falls around construction equipment can have fatal consequences. Here are some additional points to consider when working with machinery or tools.

  1. Workers should never jump on or ride pump trucks. There is always the danger of catching clothing on pedals or other protruding parts. They could land on an uneven surface and injure their ankles, legs, or back and damage equipment.
  2. Workers should be instructed on the proper techniques for mounting and drilling equipment. They should always use handrails, handholds, and steps to mount or dismount self-propelled equipment. Workers should follow the 3-point system–either two hands and one foot, or one hand and two feet on the machine at all times.
  3. Never operate equipment (Forklift, Pump truck, Raymond Reach and Pallet trucks etc.) from any position other than the operator’s seat or control area.
  4. The equipment operator should never allow passengers to ride along. They are much more likely to fall from a machine when it is moving.
  5. Steps and platforms of machinery should be kept clean and dry. Take the time to clean off the water, grease, and other debris that can accumulate on these surfaces. Do not carry tools, chains, or other equipment on the platform.
  6. Always observe your workstation or areas for any safety hazards to prevent falls and maintain a safe environment.
  7. Safety is always first for self-protection and for your coworker’s well-being.

Role of Staffing Agencies in Today’s Businesses

Staff247Admin July 25, 2017 0

Who hasn’t used or at least heard of online dating websites! right? If by any chance you haven’t, then let me tell you what these sites do. “Online Dating let you find the kind of person you are searching for….”. Now, how is that done? Well, you tell the website about the kind of person you are searching for. These websites then screen out different profiles for you to find you the persons that meet your criteria. Ta da…..

Staffing agencies get a lot of job applications every day and also hear from organizations about their recruitment needs.Hold on! what? I mean why would an organization want staffing agencies to recruit for them when they have got their own Human Resources?

Well, “Staffing agencies are today’s matchmakers between employers and prospective employees”. These agencies screen out best suitable candidates for the positions you want to hire for.

According to a research done in 2013 by Staffing Industry Analysts who compile data and do research on staffing industry on a global scale has ranked Canda at number 8th position. Canada had a 3% share in Staffing industry which made it $13 Billion then.

Staffing agencies understand your business needs. In a business when it comes to workforce you can have peaks and valleys. Maybe the number of employees you want in summer season is more than you want in fall. Maybe one of your managers is leaving the company because he is moving to a different state or country.
 
Maybe you just need an IT guy for this one project you got. In all such situations, staffing agencies can be your solution. Staffing agencies can provide workers with needed skills for your summer season jobs, they can help you replace your leaving manager in a shorter time. You can also find your IT guy for your project through these agencies.

 

Now look at the hiring process, first, the company advertises for the job, then collect resumes, then conduct interviews and then hire from among the candidates interviewed. This process is both time consuming and costs a lot of money. When it comes to hiring through staffing agencies, the companies save both their time as well as money. This way companies don’t have to spend much time as the staffing agencies are doing their job in searching and interviewing candidates for the position/s that company is hiring for.
 
Secondly, the company is also skipping those advertising and interviewing costs. Last but not least, staffing agencies offer to provide temporary to permanent employees. This way if you like the employee, you can keep him but if you want someone even

 

Another very contributing factor from staffing agencies to today’s labor-intensive job market is, staffing agencies can provide you general labor of all kinds of skills and abilities in big volumes. Let’s say that a company just built a new warehouse in Toronto and needs at least 200 new employees to work in that warehouse. Well if that company is going to do the whole hiring process on its own, it is a lot of money and even more time.
 
 
However, if the company assigns this task to staffing agencies, they can provide that warehouse with those 200 needed workers in a very short time and without costing much money. This way the company can start operating its warehouse in a matter of days than spending weeks in searching the required workers. Bonus point! Some staffing agencies already provide their every new employee with worker health and safety training in compliance with their state and federal labor laws.

 

Summing up the whole article, it would be fair to say that staffing or employment agencies are playing a very pivotal role in today’s business environment. These agencies are working their best to facilitate businesses/organizations with their recruitment needs. Businesses be like a startup or a multi-billion corporation, all can benefit from the services offered by staffing agencies. So, if you are looking to hire new employee/s, save your time and have Staffing agencies to assist you.
