Strategy 9: Cut Costs by Hiring

Since labor is probably the largest item on your business’ P&L, hiring to cut costs may sound counter-intuitive. Consider this: Capacity constraints are a significant source of cost. Constraints may affect the throughput of a plan or the productivity of an executive. To eliminate the bottlenecks, consider adding temporary or full-time staff.

PSG specializes in temp and temp-to-hire placement. Our candidates can cover vacation, medical leave, special project needs and address unexpected last-minute needs. If you need to staff up for projects or find people to provide special skills, office support, customer service, call center, and help desk temporaries, we can help.

Abandoning traditional staffing firm models, PSG created the ProApproach Recruitment Model for Temp, Temp-to-Hire, Direct Hire and High Volume needs. It starts with having the right people on the Team.

Our screening process and ProApproach to hiring ensure that our candidates are prepared to handle most any administrative support needs in our specialty areas or general office support. And our try-before-you-hire give you flexible solutions for full-time hire needs and allows you to spread hiring costs over time, ensures a good fit before you hire and reduces potential unemployment costs.

Bringing in administrative support frees key personnel to focus on core job duties (not only do you get a more productive employee, but the administrative work gets done for significantly less cost). Add labor to relieve process constraints and improve productivity. Use technical and professional temps to keep projects on track.

By adding the right people, work will get done more efficiently, with less administrative headache and for less cost. PSG can help you find the right people for your team, reduce costs and increase efficiency. Our Specialty Recruiters are HR professionals with a thorough knowledge of the local labor market.
