Running a business is costly, especially for the skilled industries in which a business counts on its workers to be expertly trained in their trade. Working with a staffing company, such as LEAD Pacific Northwest, can provide a flexible workforce, improved efficiencies, and great savings to the bottom line.
When projects take longer than expected, and the holdover costs start mounting, there are a number of risks to everyone involved, from going over budget to the reputational damage companies in the industrial, marine, and construction suffer when things don't go according to plan.
Behind every successful business is a leader who motivates every team member. LEAD Pacific Northwest Regional Manager Michael Lennox does just that. He follows the sports psychology method to achieve success for the LEAD and the skilled trade workers they employ and place with client companies. “Motivation leads to increased productivity and builds leaders,” says Michael.
