Benefits of Subscription Recruiting for Manufacturing Professionals 

The growth outlook of the manufacturing industry looks promising, but new hiring challenges come with the evolving market. With the rise of advanced technologies used in manufacturing processes, required skillsets are shifting and labor shortages are changing recruiting strategies.  

Problems and Challenges:

  • Labor shortages and increased hiring competition: 
      • Labor shortages are difficult to navigate with inexperienced recruiters. 
      • Skillsets are shifting due to advanced technologies.  
      • Aging and retiring workforce. 
  • Fees based on salaries and high temporary worker fees:
      • Recruiting firms charge fees ranging from 15-20%+ based on the candidate’s salaries. 
  • Recruiting disconnects
      • Outsourced recruiters will turn their attention to easy to fill roles or ones with higher salaries to generate the highest commissions for themselves.   

We eliminated this approach to build a cohesive relationship with the client that focuses on every role equally and to drive a cost-effective solution.
