Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2011
18X The labour hire industry has experienced dramatic growth over the last 20 years and the benefits of using a recruitment company for your temporary and permanent staffing requirements are many and varied. The commencement of a new century introduced us to the dot-com boom and saw us navigate the perils of Y2K and the global financial crisis. A mobile phone now fits easily into your pocket, online shopping means that the local supplier has to compete with the rest of the world and the Internet has invaded every aspect of our lives - including the fridge. Businesses have had to adapt to changing market conditions with greater responsibility of meeting onerous legal obligations as an employer. In short, elasticity and agility are key factors when it comes to managing a labour force in the 21st century. Recruitment services are a significant operating cost for businesses and it is important to get hiring right – retaining good workers is not just a matter of skill-set, it is also about fitting in with the company culture. Seasonal peaks and troughs only compound the problem of balancing labour supply with the services required on any given day. Outsourcing business functions such as permanent recruitment, temporary labour hire and payroll starts to make sense when faced with all of these challenges. As companies expand their operations, it is important to engage a national recruitment provider, such as APS Group, who has representation in every major capital city in Australia. The experienced team of recruitment professionals at APS Group can quickly implement seamless recruiting solutions for your company and also replicate successful recruitment solutions across multiple sites nationally. A well-balanced mix of permanent employees and temporary labour hire solutions allows companies to streamline workforce expenditure and turn fixed labour costs into variable costs. An effective relationship with a quality recruitment provider can also minimise the cost of administering payroll, WorkCover and superannuation requirements, enabling your staff to focus their time on growing your business. APS can craft customised solutions that address specific needs whilst remaining flexible to accommodate your changing requirements. APS has also taken an innovative approach of offering elite candidates employment security which means our candidates stay loyal and our clients benefit by having trained staff available when required. Managing a flexible labour pool is a peripheral area to your core business and it is best managed and maintained by a professional and experienced recruitment provider - leaving you free to focus on your core operations. As a company certified to ISO9001:2008 and AS4801:2000, APS Group is committed to providing quality staff and services to all of our clients and candidates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. APS is also a member of the RCSA and is bound by the RSCA Code of Conduct. At APS Group our goal is to be the premier national supplier of recruitment solutions in our targeted vertical markets of transport, logistics, industrial, retail and commercial recruitment.
