To cover an extra shift, you’ll need 65 people. Peak season is approaching, and you want to increase your line without adding any additional unemployment or workers’ compensation insurance. You want a dependable on-site manager who can oversee all aspects of your seasonal labor, from onboarding and safety training to payroll and cost control. With APS’s on-site staffing, you may increase production while decreasing overall expenditures. We expertly manage all key aspects of your seasonal workforce, such as employee turnover, overtime, on-boarding, safety and skill training, time keeping, and payroll.

Any workforce’s effectiveness can be judged in terms of direct expenses and time to fill. APS is dedicated to measuring more. The “quality” of a workforce can be measured, but so can the quality of each individual worker—specifically, the time and expenditures required for a worker to become completely productive.

APS can also assist in lowering turnover through position-specific recruiting and an on-boarding procedure that ensures consistent job performance, hence improving the quality of finished products.

Payroll management relies heavily on measurable time and costs. The time-capture, time-approval, and back-office technologies linked by APS significantly minimize the time and energy necessary to manage weekly payroll. At the granular level, attendance management and worker productivity can also be measured. Overtime expenditures are frequently reduced (where applicable). At APS, we hire and schedule employees based on hours rather than headcount.

Before adopting an APS onsite staffing program, quality measurements can be assessed and analyzed. This establishes explicit expectations for mutually agreed-upon key performance metrics to be reviewed and tracked on a regular basis throughout the engagement. Quality measures also facilitate the program’s implementation phase.
