If a Staffing Coordinator can assign a high percentage of associates and keep a greater number of associates working longer, the results are increased revenue, reduced recruiting costs, and better service to clients. Clients appreciate and come back for quality service. It is the Staffing Coordinator who takes the job order, assigns the associate, and follows up to ensure client satisfaction. It is the quality of service that causes a client company to select one staffing service over another. Service is based on people, and people are never perfect.
