As part of continued process improvement executives in the metalworking sector are examining hiring practices, training practices, and poor employee retention rates as their enterprise wide lean initiatives finally arrive at the Human Resources department. The process implementation is familiar since those organizations are already using lean technology, and other methodologies including Six Sigma. Generic placement or staffing organizations which can place a last-minute temporary worker are detrimental to the lean hiring process and actually prove more costly and wasteful than the few staffing organizations that recognize the specific personnel requirements and nuances of the metalworking sector.

Ãâ‚ÅMany placement firms are too generic according to the leading metalworking firms and suppliers down the supply chainÃâ‚, according to Julie Maydew, vice president of ResourceMFG, who is finding great demand for placing highly trained technicians within the sector. When a staffing company places people in unfamiliar environments, the time to learn the expectations of the industry, company expectations, skills or experience requirements complicate the recruiting process. When a specialist is used, many of the delaying factors are eliminated as they are already recruiting in the right places for similar positions eliminating the Ãâ‚Åstarting from scratchÃâ‚ syndrome. Reviewing dozens of placement firms claiming manufacturing specialty reveal that most were recruiting for carpenters, plumbers, journeyman electricians, construction, bookkeepers, file clerks, and a myriad of skills and positions that were not directly or remotely related to manufacturing companies.

According to manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler in the March issue of Metalworking Production & Purchasing, Ãâ‚ÅGeneric personnel placement organizations are failing to meet the specific employee requirements of industry segments including automotive, electronic, machining, sheet metal, fabrication, and many other specialized producers. There is increasing staffing segmentation. Few organizations are involved with the total spectrum of manufacturing positions including production, quality, maintenance, supervision, and all levels of management. Skilled manufacturing recruiters must be able to deliver the right person, with the right skills, at the right time.Ãâ‚

In an era where lean manufacturing is normative and the standard, it is remarkable that how much waste still remains in the hiring and training of manufacturing employees. ResourceMFG maintains relationships with leading manufacturing trade organizations and associations to help clients eliminate wasteful practices, and experience real continued process improvements.
