Goodwill Staffing grows pipeline of temp-to-hire talent

Dec 10, 2018 No Comments by

Looking ahead to the new year, Alliance member Goodwill Staffing Services in Middle Georgia is positioned to focus solely on making temp-to-hire and direct hire placements with external employer clients. Internal staffing services for its Goodwill parent, formerly a sizable portion of business revenues, have been shifted to Goodwill’s Human Resources Department.

Vice President of Career Services Susan Dunseth and Director of Employer Partnerships Lonnicia Maxwell have led the staffing business’s change in strategy, including a detailed analysis of costs to manage recruitment and placement in its three key industry sectors – manufacturing/logistics, healthcare, and hospitality. Susan notes that health care placements have much more stringent and costly screening requirements compared with light industrial positions, for example, and mark-up rates reflect those differences. Goodwill’s temp-to-hire services include no-fee conversions after 60 days of employment.

With two new Employer Partnership Managers on board, Goodwill Staffing has begun developing new accounts in Macon, Augusta and the Lake Oconee resort area and expects to increase its average weekly workers on assignment by 50% in 2019, from 160 workers currently to 240 next year. We wish Susan and her team success as they grow a valuable pipeline of talent for Middle Georgia businesses and connect job seekers with stable employment.
