ACCO needed to bring back order fulfillment to 100% to manage the increase in demand of their products.

Pay Rate Study
We did a pay rate study in their ZIP code to determine what pay scale would get them to their employee goal.
Based on analysis of that data, we advised them that pay should be increased from $11 to $20 per hour.
We posted the job, then followed up over the weekend to encourage every applicant to complete the application process and be ready for screening on the Tuesday after the holiday.
We handled the smallest details, organizing the lines for orientation paperwork, drug screening, employee badges, parking passes — even providing a pen for paperwork.
After working with us, the client saw these outcomes:
A total of 117 positions were filed over a holiday weekend.
New hires were fully equipped and orientated
The fill rate soured from 55% in May to 100% in June.
