  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) January 21, 2015 - The logistics and transportation industry has been experiencing exponential growth and as a result the hiring potential is increasing every year. Making the right hiring decision is now more important that ever.

    As the booming growth within the industry continues, companies can make a splash in 2015 by recruiting top talent into positions with the greatest potential for success. Stepping in to help hiring managers within organizations find the most qualified applicants for integral openings, is the logistics and transportation recruiting firm, CS Recruiting. This specialized recruiting firm has been applying their wealth of industry connections and knowledge of hiring trends to match talent with the best opportunities.

    "We're anticipating a very active and diverse hiring landscape heading into Q1," said Charlie Saffro, co-founder of CS Recruiting. "Many of our clients are starting to see the value of hiring a recruitment firm that understands the trends within the industry and the potential of the talent that is out there."

    CS Recruiting is providing the steps logistics and transportation companies can take to prepare their organizations to retain the best level of talent heading into the New Year:

    - Take A Look Back: As the year-end books come to a close, look back at the past year's recruitment efforts and correct any missteps before starting the hiring process. Identify whether the company's needs were met and what those needs may be for the future.

    - Evaluate Hierarchy: A thorough audit of where the company stands in relation to meeting its goals for the past year will give an indication of what the organization's employment needs may be heading into the New Year. When evaluating current talent in the organization, take a look at their likelihood of staying with the organization over the course of the year. Among many other data points, companies should start by analyzing things like the average age of their staff, how long they have been in their positions and if they are due for promotions.

    - Define Growth Potential: Between 2012 and 2022, jobs in logistics are projected to grow by 22 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. This sets the stage for aligning an organization's growth potential with hiring in the right positions in order to meet 2015 projections. If your business is expected to grow exponentially, then you can expect that your hiring needs will be higher than normal.

    - Understand The Process: On average, it takes 128 hours - that's more than two weeks-and thousands of dollars to hire an employee in the logistics industry. Before beginning the hiring process understand how much time the company is able to devote to recruiting talent and whether the process can be outsourced to specialized recruiting firm. Many times the time and money that goes into the interview and onboarding process can be diverted with the help of a recruiting firm.

    "The best thing an organization can do, and which we suggest to all our clients, is to put the moving pieces into place so that a new hire can jump into their new position with confidence," added Charlie.
