Edison, NJ (PRWEB) November 3, 2010
One of the 'newest players' in the temporary staffing industry, KO Staffing Services, is quickly making a permanent mark on this growing business sector, recently opening a second office in Dover, New Hampshire, to service the needs of companies in need of temporary staffing in the New England area.
The Dover New Hampshire office will be spear-headed by Staffing Industry expert Christopher Petruccelli, who is affectionately known in the Industry as 'The Doctor of Employment.' Christopher brings over 20 years of staffing experience with him to KO Staffing and is aiming to show the industry why KO Staffing differs from the many other staffing companies that are in business today. 'We look at our customers as partners' said Chris, 'Every customer has different needs and our goal at KO Staffing is to individually identify the needs of our clients and provide solutions that enable them to concentrate on their core business operations, making them more productive and in turn more profitable.'
KO Staffing Services has been in operation since January 2009. Since opening its doors, the firm has placed nearly 500 employees with more than 50 client companies. The company's early success reflects its business philosophy of placing equal importance on both clients and employees, unique within an industry that generally focuses on low-cost placement and high fulfillment rates, according to KO Staffing Services President, Robert Criscuolo.
"Our formula for becoming a successful and permanent player in the temporary staffing business is to ensure a good fit between employer and employee," Criscuolo said. "This results in the placement of qualified and reliable personnel with our business partners and quality employment for our people. That, in turn, leads to repeat business and a continuing inflow of quality employees."
There are more than 6,000 temporary staffing agencies in the United States. Temporary and contract staffing has gained popularity among employers in today's competitive business environment because it offers savings, flexibility and administrative convenience. In the fiscal quarter ending August 30, 2005, U.S. staffing firms employed an average of 2.7 million temporary and contract workers per day, and American businesses spent $16.9 billion during the quarter for their services, according to the American Staffing Association.
As a rule, temporary workers remain employees of the staffing firms. This offers businesses savings in employment costs, including benefits and administration; the flexibility to quickly retool staffs; and administrative convenience, as temporary staffing firms do all the leg work of searching for and screening employees, and often offer payroll services.
Companies are attracted to KO Staffing Services by its variety of services, Criscuolo said. These include:
Reliability - Qualified, reliable personnel for all staffing needs.
Flexibility - Temporary staffing - from one to 100 - through a variety of contract options.
Convenience - Payroll servicing and outsourced administration.
Cost-Savings - Elimination of the costs relating to full-time employees.
Security - Background checks and credential reviews.
Industry Knowledge - In-depth understanding of client industries and individual positions.
"At KO Staffing we do not simply fill orders," Criscuolo said. "We become business partners with our clients, providing reliable personnel who fit their needs and quality service that creates a lasting relationship. We understand their businesses - we've had the calluses. We do not always provide the lowest-priced staffing; we aim to provide the most reliable."
According to Criscuolo, workers are attracted to KO Staffing by the firm's commitment to its employees and the quality opportunities the firm offers. These include:
Competitive Wages - Competitive wages to attract quality employees.
Permanent Employment Opportunities
Quality Workplaces - Clients committed to maintaining professional workplace standards.
Quality Coworkers - Coworkers determined to be reliable, honest and committed.
Quality Employer - An employer that invests resources in its employees.
"Every KO Staffing employee is an ambassador of our organization," Criscuolo said. "Therefore, we must attract and retain quality people by providing them with an atmosphere that proves rewarding for their career development."
This business strategy of placing equal value on client and employee is working for KO Staffing because it is unique in an industry which often views filling openings quickly as the end-all and considers employees bulk commodities, Criscuolo said.
Criscuolo further stated "That (filling openings quickly as the end-all and considers employees bulk commodities) is not an approach that leads to maintaining relationships - neither between our clients and our employees, nor between our clients and employees and our business," he said. "And we intend to be a permanent player in the temporary staffing industry by maintaining relationships."
