The Flex-Team Difference for Temporary Staffing
At Flex-Team Inc., we’re aware that there are other temporary staffing agencies available in the northeast Ohio marketplace, which is why we are always appreciative of our customers and work hard to repeatedly and consistently earn and keep your trust. We take your business seriously, and strive to deliver quality temp-labor manpower who help you to meet your production goals with each and every job placement order.
Below are some reasons why we believe that Flex-Team offers excellent workforce solutions and management for light industrial and office admin needs in the Akron and Canton regions. What do YOU think?
⊕ Experiential Success for More than 30 Years
In business since 1986 – 31 years and counting – we’ve had the privilege of developing a deep understanding of the labor needs in our region and a vast network of recruiting outreach. While many temp agencies have come and gone during our existence, we’ve weathered the ups and downs of business life in northeast Ohio and kept our word and our integrity to clients and employees alike. And we did this BEFORE the Internet, job boards and cellular technology made such work a simpler process.
⊕ Hands-On Industrial Management
Not every temp firm can boast of a CEO with direct manufacturing experience, but we can! CEO Rick Pollock has decades of experience managing increasing responsibility in manufacturing environments, eventually becoming president of his own company before taking the helm of Flex-Team. Rick’s understanding of the staffing demands of industrial operations comes in very handy from a consultative aspect on a weekly basis as he speaks with business owners about their labor needs.
⊕ Staffing Certification
Education and training will always prove valuable in the long run. For this reason, every account specialist at Flex-Team must study and pass their certification testing from the American Staffing Association to become Certified Staffing Professionals (CSPs) who are trained in the legal aspects of human resources. Knowledge is power, and our CSPs are a powerful team to be sure.
⊕ Costs to Hire
Speaking of the “time and expense” involved in acquiring new employees – between advertising costs for recruitment, interview sessions that occupy the time of HR teams and other managers, drug-screening costs and background checks, and paperwork for wages and taxes … an estimate of approximately $1051 per new employee for acquisition is not unheard of. Flex-Team does all this work for you – saving valuable time AND money in the process. We become your adjunct HR team.
⊕ 4-Hour Work Performance Guarantee
We screen and diligently place our employees in company environments where they will fit well and be a contributing factor for production success. If, however, a placement is glaringly wrong, a supervisor can contact us to cancel that placement within the first four hours of work and your company will not be charged for that employee’s time at your facility.
⊕ Multiple Workforce Solutions for Flexible Labor Needs
Oftentimes, our clients are seeking more than basic temporary labor for their needs. Flex-Team responds with multiple workforce scenarios depending on the needs of our client companies. Our Temp-to-Hire solution enables a client to “test-drive” a new worker for 90 days before then hiring them for a permanent full-time position. The advantages of this “trial” period are numerous. Flex-Team’s Direct-Hire recruiting service places us in the driver’s seat to recruit, screen and test potential employees with specialized skills for permanent roles within our client companies – saving their HR departments much time and expense in the process. These flexible solutions make us a valuable HR partner for growing companies across northeast Ohio.
⊕ Proactive Employee Motivation Policies
We want our temporary associates to succeed on-the-job for our clients, and for their betterment as well. Our CSPs regularly communicate with our employees to check on their morale and performance at work, as well as to make sure they are treated fairly. We offer health insurance options for our workers, and even vacation and holiday pay after a length of employment with us. Our Employee of the Month program encourages our associates to do their best at work, for which they are rewarded and compensated. We appreciate our temp staff very much – where would we be without them?
⊕ Core Values that Encourage Dignity and Honorable Work Ethics
The former chairman of Flex-Team – Jacob Pollock – was a successful businessman and industrialist who believed that everyone deserved a “fair shake” and mutual respect. Besides sponsoring youth league sporting teams and doing philanthropic work in the community, Jacob advocated for our core values of Respect, Compassion, Teamwork, Excellence, Integrity and Accountability as a way of keeping all employees mindful of a higher level of working and living. We live and work that standard today in his honor.
⊕ A Tight Focus on Light Industrial and Clerical Admin
Some temporary agencies place their workers wherever needed, regardless of their lack of experience in a particular field. Flex-Team has opted to focus on light industrial and clerical office admin needs so that our customers get temp employees who know how to work and what work needs to be done. We don’t see much value in placing employees where they are ineffectual – either for themselves or for our valued clients.
