ACCU STAFFING recruit people in new places. At times, they even held hiring events. From that idea has sprung true, modernized, mobile staffing vehicles. A key area of focus for ACCU Staffing is the reduction of turnover. This helps not only ACCU Staffing but also their clients and employees as well: • For ACCU, it reduces costs. Placing people in the right positions the first time brings costs down across the board and also helps ACCU’s reputation. • For employees, it saves the time and energy of having to retrain themselves for different positions. Finding the right fit from the start is always going to be better than having to shift around from position to position looking for the right one. • For customers, the same thing is true. Time is saved, money is saved on training, and satisfaction is improved by having the right people in the right roles from the beginning. How is turnover reduced? By education, to start. Companies will explain their needs and then proper training will be created for them, whether that is through dedicated rooms for specific tasks, filmed videos of workplaces and environments, or going through safety training and appropriate attire. By preparing employees for what they will actually encounter in the workplace, it significantly improves the chances that they will better fill positions that they are placed into. Another way that ACCU sets themselves apart is their biannual barbeque. During these events, the family pitches in to purchase food and cook for all of the employees that work for them. It’s a way of giving back. Half of the employees will run the office for one day while the other half attend, then the two switch the next day. In the modern work environment, small things like this set the company apart and allow employees to feel like they are actually cared for. Sadly, Doris passed away 2 years ago. Her daughter Elaine M. Damm is now the CEO of ACCU Staffing. For more information about ACCU Staffing, you can visit them online at accustaffing.com or contact them at 888-437-ACCU. 5
