Large regional direct mail business was using eight different staffing companies when Titan Staffing began working with them more than ten years ago. With peak seasonal work and project-based work, contingent staff was a necessary part of their business. Theirs is a deadline-driven business with an extremely time-sensitive environment.
A national distribution center was doing all its own hiring for hundreds of product builder positions, while at the same time trying to maintain a temporary pool of up to 100 people who could work on a moment’s notice. During peak business periods there were too few employees to meet production demands. During slow times, there were too many people on staff. The turnover rate was 35%; one in three employees left within the first six months. Revenue suffered and costs were out of control.
