Cost Management in Environmental Staffing


Aerotek’s environmental staffing segment provides personnel to support environmental management and remediation. Aerotek is the number one U.S. provider of technical and engineering staffing.

Business Pain
Our customer, an environmental remediation firm, was facing challenges recruiting within a niche technical skill set to staff projects. Temporary projects requiring frequent increase and reduction in workforce was causing them to incur unnecessary high costs. They needed a staffing partner to help manage costs associated with a temporary labor force.

Environmental Staffing Solution
• Aerotek provided a flexible workforce solution
• Contract staffing allowed our customer to add personnel on an as-needed basis
• Aerotek managed all associated costs, such as timekeeping and unemployment expenses, reducing the customer’s overhead

Results
• Placed 17 personnel in two locations since 2009
• Over 80 percent of the customer’s projects had a duration of 1-5 days, and Aerotek’s successful placements provided temporary solutions
• Increased project win ratio and increased revenue and profit
