It’s easy to get comfortable doing the same processes that have been working for your staffing agency for years. But how often do you stop and think about whether it’s the most efficient process? Even if you think that your recruiting, sales or back office processes work just fine, it’s always a good idea to periodically review internal processes to make sure they’re appropriately aligned to growth strategies and company priorities.
If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to assessing efficiency and productivity at your staffing agency, TempWorks Software can help. Our productivity analysis service is a multi-phased approach to increase the efficiency of your staffing software usage and, as a result, improve your staffing agency’s productivity and profitability. Here are three reasons you might want to consider conducting a productivity analysis.
1. Unbiased assessment of your current status.
What are you doing right? What could use improvement? With a productivity analysis, our product expert conducts staff interviews, analyzes the system database and observes operational processes to understand how you’re leveraging the software system onboarding, fulfillment and payroll functions.
2. Customized solutions to fit your needs and maximize productivity.
Based on the information gained in the initial assessment, TempWorks will tailor an action plan to fit your staffing agency’s needs for improvement. Some recommendations for improvement might include creating a consistent process for assigning interest codes or user roles across all branches of a staffing agency. Other recommendations may include customized workflow or reporting suggestions or additional modules to help increase efficiency internally.
3. Assistance in executing the improvement plan.
Once the plan is approved by the staffing agency, TempWorks will help your team to execute the elements of the plan. This may include one-on-one training with users, small group training, custom reports and custom workflow enhancements.
Once the productivity analysis improvement plan has been implemented, TempWorks also follows up with a management report that recaps the findings and recommendations of the analysis to help you stay on track with the suggested changes. A productivity analysis will help your staff optimize their use of the software system by delivering a roadmap of exactly what to work on to improve efficiency for day-to-day operations.
Here’s what one of our clients had to say about their recent productivity analysis:
