Rapid Retention Recruiting: Transforming Industrial and Manufacturing Staffing

Staffing challenges can have far-reaching consequences in the manufacturing and industrial industries. When a prominent Commercial HVAC/Manufacturing company found itself grappling with critical managerial vacancies, it quickly realized the staffing gaps were severely hindering the company’s growth prospect. Read on to see how Premier Staffing Solution implemented rapid retention recruiting to resolve this issue. 

The Situation
Stalling Growth and Supply Chain Woes

Our client, a Commercial HVAC/Manufacturing company, found itself struggling with limited growth. The organization was grappling with critical vacancies in key managerial roles that included Category Managers, Buyer/Planners, Senior Directors, SIOP (Sale, Inventory, Ops, Purchasing) specialists, and SQDE (Supplier Quality Development Engineer) professionals. These subject matter experts were vital to the company's supply chain operations, and their absence was hindering throughput.

Furthermore, the company's plant expansion efforts were grinding to a halt due to the inability to keep up with customer demands. Supply chain issues were exacerbating the situation, and the need for fast resolution was paramount.
