When facing significant strains on your warehouse operations, you need a labor solution fast. Staffing never stabilizes, and you don’t have time to train temp workers or onboard a partner to your processes. You need someone who can hit the ground running and help you right your ship so you can continue providing quality customer service and focus on growing your business.
At FHI NOW, this is our speciality. We pride ourselves on Hard Work Done Right® without any added headache for your organization. Other companies might claim something similar, but there are 5 aspects of our service that set us apart.
1. We Deploy a Trained, Experienced Team
Many temp agencies will send workers with little or no warehouse experience. That means you have to train them, not only in how your warehouse works, but also the appropriate safety measures. This wastes time that you don’t have.
On average, FHI team members have more than one year of warehousing experience. This means they can be up to 75% more effective than your run-of-the-mill temp worker.
We can get the job done with fewer associates than temp agencies because our team already knows their way around a warehouse and can work in multiple roles. They come into your company ready and capable of making an immediate impact on your operation.
2. On-site Leaders
Our on-site leaders take away the stress of managing outside workers. They accompany our team, manage them throughout the engagement, and are accountable for their performance. So you never have to worry if our team is getting their job done.
Team leaders have an average of 5 ½ years of experience managing a warehouse team. They’re dedicated to each project and will work hard to help you get your operation back on track and create efficiencies that help things run smoothly, even after we’re gone.
When facing labor shortages or missed deadlines, you can’t wait for help. You need someone who can send a team right away to help you get control of your operation and put things back on track.
We can assemble and deploy an experienced team in less than 72 hours to reinforce and realign your operation. We know you can’t spend weeks in the lurch, so we show up with a plan and a team to execute it.
4. Successful Track Record
For over thirty years, FHI has built our reputation on service, productivity and safety. We don’t just get the job done, but ensure we do it the right way. . In fact, two-thirds of our customers have come back to our services when facing recurring labor issues. These return engagements and continued belief in our services as a solution are the best testament we can receive to a job well done.
We all know how important safety is in a warehouse. That’s why FHI NOW maintains a DART score of 4.1, well below the industry average. This demonstrates our emphasis on safety in the workplace and dedication to adhering to OSHA safety guidelines in all we do.
Ultimately, we’re here to make headaches go away, not create more. Our commitment to safety is just another way we make your life easier.
