West Valley Staffing Gets the Job Done
By Tina Hansen
Finding the right person for a job can be a challenge; it is a time-consuming process with consequences. If a company hires someone who is not a good fit, it can end up costing them a great deal of money while the right candidate might be hidden under a stack of resumes.
Hiring the right candidate affects more than the company’s bottom line, it has a positive impact on morale in other employees, it reduces turnover, and most importantly, the right hire can help attract other talented employees.
For many organizations, because of the time it takes to hire the right person, outsourcing this complex task is necessary. At West Valley Staffing Group in Hacienda, they understand the importance of hiring someone who is not only technically capable of doing the job, but who is also in sync with the values of the organization.
West Valley Staffing, which has grown into one of the largest privately held staffing organizations in northern California, is a comprehensive agency that specializes in four highly competitive sectors: engineering, IT, accounting and administration.
According to the California Employment Development Department (EDD), California’s unemployment rate fell to 4.9 percent as of March, and according to data from two surveys, with March’s job data, the state has gained a total of 2,507,400 jobs since the economic expansion began in February 2010.
"An uptick in the economy is always encouraging," said Charlie Allport, Executive Vice President of WVSG, "and the fact that, according to the latest "Manufacturing ISM Report on Business," the manufacturing industry is growing, especially in electronics, only serves to increase optimism."
West Valley Staffing has been in business for more than 45 years, and they have been a big part of the staffing in Hacienda. They have seen the outsourcing of hiring become a global endeavor as companies specific hiring needs become more complex.
