Staffing for Manufacturing

Production demands can be unpredictable and yet the quality of your workforce shouldn’t be.

Manufacturing is one of the largest industries in the U.S. generating over $2 trillion in revenue. After all, the U.S. produces more than 18% of the world’s goods. With these numbers, it’s easy to see why it’s vital to have a top-tier manufacturing team. Like many other fields, however, there is a lack of available talent. Employers struggle to find the skilled workers they need to fill key roles on their teams.

At FootBridge, we find the people you need to meet the challenges of cyclical demand and time-sensitive production schedules. We work closely with you to attain a thorough understanding of your business needs, recommend strategic solutions, and give you the tools you need to succeed in today’s competitive environment. Providing the right people who will blend seamlessly with your current team is what we do best, and together we get the job done. 

Our talented team of specialized recruiters will find qualified candidates for all your projects, including:

  • Capital Equipment
  • Robotics / Automation
  • Life Sciences

Frequently Asked Questions

Can hiring contract workers help to reduce long term fixed costs & avoid layoffs?

Yes, it does!

Our contract workers are full-time employees of FootBridge. As long as they are working 30+ hours per week, they are provided with our comprehensive benefits and covered under our insurance policies.

This allows our clients to forecast costs on an hourly basis for the duration of a project. If project length is uncertain, hiring a contractor reduces your risk of adding a long-term fixed employee cost.
