4 Factors to Consider Before Deciding on the Right Staffing Agency
Finding the right labor placement company requires a lot more than a simple Google search and online application. If you want to find a staffing agency that will work with you to give you the best labor job opportunities possible, it’s important to do your research properly.
Here are 4 things to keep in mind when choosing the right temp agency for you:
1. Company Culture
While it may not seem so important to know the core values of a staffing agency that mostly sends you out to work with other companies, understanding their philosophy can influence your decision.
We take pride in creating an exceptional experience for all our employees
While some temp agencies are built on the idea of transient staff, at Matrix, we are focused on building long-term relationships. We boast low attrition, high retention and accurate labor placement.
Regardless of ECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS and SEASONAL CHANGES, we have developed a structure that provides long-term, consistent employment as well as opportunities for career development.
More and more temp agencies are offering traditional employment perks including health care, direct deposit and paid vacation days. In fact, at Matrix, 84% of our costs are attributed to wages and benefits.
While some people won’t care about anything more than who pays best, when selecting the right staffing agency, it might be well worth making a little less on each job as a tradeoff for other important benefits.
3. Opportunities to expand your skill set
One of the most challenging aspects of being competitive as a job seeker in an economy with a lot of people looking for new work is discovering that you are the least qualified because of a lack of experience.
When selecting an agency to help place you in the best labor jobs, make sure that they offer opportunities for you to enhance your skill set, be it through continued education or training courses.
4. Safety Ticket Program at Matrix
Matrix runs a Safety Ticket Program out of our state-of-the-art training facility. This ensures that all of our employees receive the necessary safety training before applying for a labor job in Edmonton or Calgary.
This has allowed us to build a community of skilled, knowledgeable and experienced workers who can advance their careers in a safe and healthy work environment.
Even if a staffing firm is very reputable and has good reviews, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the right one for your unique skills and requirements. A temp agency that works within your niche is more likely to have a greater network of potential employers who are looking for qualified candidates with your specialized skills.
In addition, such specialized agencies will understand the local ins and outs, as well as the unwritten rules of your industry, and can help tailor your resume and prepare you for the interview so you are sure to get the labor job you want.
At Matrix, we specialize in labor placement in the following industries:
- Industrial/Commercial Construction
- Oil & Gas
