It's nearly impossible to overstate the importance of the manufacturing and logistics sectors to the health of the U.S. economy overall. Just for starters, consider the fact that every dollar spent in manufacturing adds another $1.89 to the overall economy — and that's a higher rate than any other sector.
It's good news for everyone, therefore, that these industries are primed for growth. In Randstad's recent survey of select manufacturing and logistics clients, for example, the vast majority (68%) indicated they expected performance to increase in the year ahead.
But all of that growth won’t be realized unless distinctive challenges are overcome — talent shortages, skills gaps and a growing retention crisis chief among them. In this context, best-in-class manufacturing and logistics companies are increasingly turning to strategic partners for help.
Ready to move the needle on key metrics like talent, safety and more? Here’s a look at Randstad’s core service areas, how we can deliver value — and what sets us apart from the competition.
our core service areas
Talent is your most valuable asset. It's what drives your business forward each and every day, but it might not be your area of expertise. Fortunately, it's ours. And no matter how complex or niche your needs may be, we can deliver. Our core service areas include:
These are only a few examples of how we're partnering with and supporting leading manufacturing and logistics companies today. Ultimately, with our large network of qualified candidates available on demand across the country, together with our deep domain expertise in the manufacturing and logistics industries, we can solve for virtually any talent-related pain point, no matter how large or small.
what differentiates randstad from the competition?
Unlike most other staffing partners, we understand the connection between talent and operational KPIs around safety and compliance — something that can make all of the difference for manufacturing and logistics companies. Our recruiters are experts in the latest industry best practices, and they’ll work with you consultatively to answer questions like:
Another differentiator is our high-tech, high-touch approach to staffing. While all of our recruiters are empowered by the latest and greatest hiring technologies, they’re also constantly in touch with talent, and they leverage those relationships to source candidates who are uniquely qualified to meet your needs. That way, you’ll get candidates who aren't just ready to contribute value from day one, but also possess the intangibles that make someone a great fit for your organization’s culture, too.
Finally, there’s our in-depth pre-employment screening process, which we can customize to meet your business objectives, no matter how complex or niche they might be. While Randstad's recent survey revealed a sunny outlook among manufacturing and logistics companies today, finding skilled talent to support demand remains a major concern — and when you partner with Randstad, we can always step in to help you scale.
