Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 19, 2006
Staff Management, a leading provider of vendor-on-premise staffing and management solutions, announced that it has been selected by LEGO Systems, Inc., a world leader in manufacturing creative play materials for children, to support all contingent labor requirements at its Enfield, Connecticut operation.
As a leader in the toy manufacturing industry, the LEGO Group provides play materials to more than 130 countries. The company holds high standards for its products, making it the shared responsibility of all employees to meet or exceed all international quality and safety requirements for children’s toys.
LEGO Systems wanted to re-engineer the way it managed contingent labor to create a highly operationally-integrated labor program. In response, Staff Management designed a program that would support the company’s strategic goals while maintaining its operation and culture. LEGO Systems chose Staff Management because of its expertise in managing vendor-on-premises programs for clients in the manufacturing and distribution industry, its precision recruitment and selection process and proprietary management software designed for high-volume staffing applications.
After conducting a Needs Assessment in late 2005, Staff Management’s New Business Development (NBD) team arrived at LEGO Systems in early 2006. To initiate service delivery, Staff Management’s NBD team completed a six-week customized implementation plan that included the creation of standard operating procedures, the development of a targeted recruitment and selection process and the design of comprehensive orientation programs. Staff Management began delivering service on February 13, 2006 and despite a 25-inch snow fall the previous day, fulfilled 100 percent of LEGO Systems’ contingent labor requirements.
“Our Global Procurement and Manufacturing groups partnered to select a provider of contingent labor that would create the most value,” said John Kelley, Global Category Manager-Operation Services, LEGO Systems. “Maneuvering the challenges of demand and supply levers relating to contingent labor is not easy, and we selected Staff Management because of their ability to deliver a greater total value and lower total cost of ownership – two key factors in our decision.”
“Staff Management is extremely appreciative of the support LEGO Systems has provided to our team through this process and for the spirit of partnership and collaboration that they have brought to our relationship,” said Caroline Storey, Director of Business Solutions, Staff Management.
