Prologistix Vp Addresses Retention Issues in Logistics Staffing

By: Thomas Cutler

According to Brian Devine, division vice-president of ProLogistix. "The staffing industry was doing a poor job servicing the logistics industry with talented employees. At ProLogistix, we created the most comprehensive application process for logistics employees in the industry. We use our selection process to evaluate a candidate's specific knowledge and experience, and we then match qualifications to the positions for which we are recruiting."
Unlike other staffing organizations, 100% of ProLogistix recruiting efforts are logistics centered. Branch staff is trained in logistics, and they understand the intricacies of the industry. Staff is not spending time testing and interviewing bookkeepers, data entry clerks, and construction workers. ProLogistix is fortunate to have built a reputation in the communities served as the "go-to" company when seeking a job in a warehouse or distribution center.

Retaining Good Workers is Central to Logistics Success

"The increase of the plant production has had a terrific impact on the growth of ProLogistix over the past few years. We are seeing increased competition for the skilled workers, and companies are finding they have to stay competitive to attract and retain productive workers. Pay rates are often the first element that hourly employees look at when considering a new job, but other factors play an important role in the "retention" of employees. These include: the work environment, the shift, the way employees are treated by their supervisors and benefits," asserts Devine.

ResourceMFG, the sister division to ProLogistix places manufacturing specific positions. Devine explained the differentiation between the two organization by noting, "The way we differentiate between which clients are best served by ResourceMFG or ProLogistix is to ask what the company does. If they manufacture products, then they are best suited to ResourceMFG; if they distribute products, then ProLogistix is the right staffing solution."

The types of positions ProLogistix fills include:
&bullLoaders and Unloaders
&bullOrder Selectors
&bullWarehouse Associates
&bullShipping and Receiving
&bullForklift Operators
&bullQuality Assurance
&bullSupervisors
&bullWarehouse Managers
&bullOperations Manager


The combination of an exclusive focus on logistics, screening tools utilized in the application process, and the experience of branch staff makes ProLogistix the leading provider of logistics talent in the country.
