Acquiring great talent can be difficult under normal circumstances, and as businesses work to emerge from the economic disruption caused by COVID-19, filling critical roles has become even more challenging. It’s a recurring theme we’ve seen over the last six months – getting the right people in the right roles to return operations to balance and profitability is more important than ever.
Our team includes experts in staffing, trained to quickly assess critical needs and swiftly fill roles with the right candidates to help a business run more efficiently. With talent demands even more acute right now, at CCO we’re acting on the need to expand our staffing solutions to include entry-level and hourly roles – especially as manufacturers battle to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
That’s why we recently acquired Chicago-based Interim HR Consulting. Founded in 2004, Interim HR Consulting is a nationally recognized staffing, recruiting and executive search firm providing staffing solutions for companies of all sizes and geographies, including multiple Fortune 500 companies across various industries.
The firm will be a subsidiary of CCO and start a new operation called Premier Staffing Solution (PSS), which will open a new corporate office in Toledo, Ohio later this year. In Chicago, where Interim HR built its brand and is currently headquartered, the company will continue to operate under its current name.
CCO and Interim HR Consulting – and now the Premier Staffing Solution team – are a great fit, as demonstrated by the results we’ve achieved since getting together. In the six weeks before our acquisition became final, we placed over 170 hourly employees around the U.S. – often within hours of activating a recruitment assignment. Here are just two examples:
- In July we received a call from a company desperately searching for hourly labor to support high production demands. Within 72 hours we had 10 certified CNC operators working in the plant.
- In August a company was in urgent need of assemblers and welders to clear a backlog of customer orders. After identifying and submitting 66 prospects within 48 hours, we worked to ensure the company was fully staffed within nine days of their initial call.
Whether you’re in need of direct placement, staff augmentation or temporary to permanent conversions, our unique search process allows us to move at speeds faster than other staffing companies to meet your needs. We operate seven days per week, focus on outbound recruitment and have already identified a large community of candidates from which to rapidly recruit the talent you need.
Finding the right people to accelerate manufacturers’ emergence from pandemic-related business disruption has become a priority, so we made it CCO’s priority to grow our resources and create even more value for our clients. As you work your way back to balance and profitability, we’re ready to do even more get the right talent in the right roles to help make it happen. And we’ll help you find quality candidates faster than you ever thought possible.
