Your Operation Is Only as Good as Your Workers
Strom provides our partners with the best of the best.
The core factor of successful contingency plan execution is the temporary workforce. As a leading temporary recruitment agency for 60 years, we are committed to qualifying all employees based upon our clients’ stated requirements.
As a union contract nears its date of expiration, you must respond quickly and effectively by exercising a reserve of bargaining tools that will give your company more leverage in negotiations. A contingent workforce provides one of the most effective sources of leverage, often forcing unions to abandon the uncompromising strategies they may employ. Strom utilizes a multi-step worker recruitment process developed over decades and fine-tuned for assembling a highly mobile workforce. Strom offers a variety of recruiting options, including utilizing our own database as well as job fairs and local, national, and on-site recruiting.
The Strom Process
Step 1: Defining Success
We begin our process by taking a truly client-specific approach, understanding worker descriptions and requirements to meet your specific needs. Our temporary work recruiters then scour our existing database of experienced employees for candidates with the skills and abilities to benefit your company. We screen calls and resumes received from employment ads we place when necessary in order to supplement and build our database.
Step 2: Interviews
After conducting initial interviews and verifying references, we conduct second interviews with appropriate candidates after reviewing project-relevant work history and relevant qualifications and certifications.
Step 3: Candidate Verification
When our list of final candidates is complete, we make job offers, releasing project information as desired by our client. We then conduct a series of checks:
- Client-specific background checks
- Criminal background checks
- DOT background checks
- Execute additional client-specific requirements
- Verify Work History
- Reference Checks
Step 4: Conditional Job Offer and Predeployment
During this final step, the candidate receives a conditional job offer that is dependent upon the results of a pre-employment drug screen and the completion of various other requirements that may be mandated by the government or site-specific programs.
To meet these eligibility requirements, we offer customizable options that include but are not limited to:
- Working with clients to complete any necessary advance training
- Performing on-site job shadowing
- Obtaining any necessary licensure or certification
When a major player in the food manufacturing industry needed 200+ workers to step in during a 4-month strike, Strom stepped in to deploy a workforce quickly. While negotiations continued, our temporary staff joined their team to ensure production was maintained without any loss in productivity.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“Strom made me look good. This work stoppage came up very quickly, and they were able to turn around on a dime and get the replacements in within two days. Our local facility was initially quite resistant to bringing in “outsiders,” as they may not “fit in” from a cultural standpoint. This concern quickly evaporated and the general manager observed that, in many instances, the Strom employees were superior to (the union) workforce. Because we were able to ramp up quickly on production and quality, it sent the right signals to both customers and employees.”
