What to Look for When Staffing Your Warehouse
Warehouse staffing is crucial for effectively operating distribution centers and storage facilities. It involves the recruitment, management, and organization of personnel responsible for various tasks within the warehouses. The key to finding the best people is developing a plan that includes the following principles.
1. Diverse Roles
Warehouses require a diverse workforce with specific responsibilities, so getting the right person for the job is crucial for ongoing success.
2. Skills & Training
Staff members need adequate warehouse safety training to operate equipment safely and abide by protocols and inventory systems.
3. Labor Efficiency
Managers must optimize staffing levels to meet demand without overburdening the workforce.
4. Safety Measures
Ensuring worker safety is paramount. Supporting this principle requires ongoing training, safety plans, and compliance with regulations.
Effective communication is vital for coordinating tasks and addressing issues properly in all areas of the warehouse.
Warehouses must adapt to seasonal fluctuations and changing demand. Fortunately, Allegiance offers flexible industrial staffing solutions that can get workers into your facility immediately.
Which Positions Need Filling?
We know there are a lot of different roles within the warehouse. To create a productive atmosphere and get things done on deadline, you need a well-organized team that communicates and complements each other.
We can support your staffing effort by filling these types of critical roles to make your warehouse run more efficiently.
Inventory & Quality Control
Whether tracking items and making sure things are in the right place or testing and assessing products for defects, workers need experience in inventory management and quality assurance. We can source the right workers that are dependable and precise.
Driving a forklift or other large machinery inside a warehouse takes skill. Not only that, it takes specific certifications to operate a forklift. Being able to unload and move goods around stacks of items, people, and other machines is vital to a functioning business. We can help identify qualified and certified talent to fit key roles in your warehouse.
Workers & Clerks
Workers are the heart of the operation, and clerks ensure everything is where it should be so orders go out on time. The process of processing and loading orders needs to be smooth and efficient, so having people you can rely on is paramount. Allegiance is prepared to source the right talent for these critical support roles.
Shipping & Receiving
Bringing goods in and shipping goods out is a constant at any warehouse facility. Making sure all the records are up-to-date and correct will make your operation run without a hitch. Let’s work together to find talent to place into these front-line roles.
Order Pullers & E-commerce Fulfillment
Once an order is made in person or online, pullers and fulfillment workers scramble into action to meet shipping deadlines with precision and haste. We understand that time is crucial, so we can help identify talent with a keen understanding of how to meet deadlines.
