It’s not news anymore that warehousing and logistics operations are struggling to attract, hire, and retain associates. It was a difficult task pre-COVID that’s become next to impossible in some regions of the country where multiple facilities are located in close proximity to each other.
To help these warehousing operations catch up—and catch their breath—there is a solution: contingency labor services. This approach deploys teams of experienced associates and managers who help stabilize an operation by supporting rapid growth temporary needs, or seasonal volume. Engaging a contingency team, such as those provided by FHI, to augment an existing workforce allows an operation’s management to refocus and address other issues.
