Smart Solutions for your Business Growing Pains

In today’s marketplace, business is booming. One outcrop of this healthy-growth environment, however, is companies feeling the pinch on production capacity. Business leaders need to optimize operations, and one way, perhaps, is by bringing on new production workers.

But, with the official unemployment rate at an 18-year low, blue-collar workers are in high demand. That means good, motivated workers are hard to find and are taking home higher wages. According to LinkedIn, the average wage for a production worker today is $21.50 per hour. Add to that 30%  to cover benefits, and one assembly worker, for example, can command up to $52,000 annually!

Outsourcing can be your lower cost, higher-quality solution

If you find your business is growing faster than you can manage with your in-house staff, outsourcing could be the answer. Here are a few smart reasons to take a look at outsourcing with third-party business service providers like Ohio Valley Goodwill.

  •      You can maximize your investment in skilled employees. When tedious tasks like assembly, kitting or fulfillment are outsourced, more quality time can be focused on customers.
  •      Your company can focus on continued growth. Outsourcing lets you concentrate on your core business, business expansion, your best customers and acquiring new ones.

At Ohio Valley Goodwill, our Industrial Services Division helps your business manage growth and continue to expand and succeed.
