CRANFORD–Remedy Intelligent Staffing’s new office located in Cranford is up and running, after having their Grand Opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday. It was presided over by officers from the Cranford and Greater Elizabeth Chambers of Commerce. Doors opened three months ago, and now the office is busy filling their clients’ vacancies, both temporary and permanent, serving businesses in Union County and surrounding areas
Office Manager Gabriela Rodrigues puts this early success down to their rigorous candidate selection process. “What sets us apart from our competitors is the integrity and safety consciousness that our employees bring to the positions. All candidates go through two tests, one that screens for integrity, uncovering any predisposition to fraud, drugs or violence and the like,” she says. Remedy says that nationally 28 percent of applicants fail this test. “Next they must pass a safety test, after undergoing safety training.” Every applicant is then interviewed. “We accept about 60 percent of people who apply, ensuring a high caliber associate for our clients.”
Franchise owner Jenny Monteleone says “Using temporary staffing is a great option in this economy. The associate is employed by Remedy, so we take care of payroll and taxes. We also have health insurance and benefits available to the associate. The employer avoids direct and indirect costs such as medical and vacation, and administrative costs. You also avoid ‘risk’ costs such as a bad hire and unemployment. Some employers looking for permanent staff also use ‘temp to perm’, where the candidate works a three month probationary period as a temporary employed by Remedy, before transferring permanently to the employer’s payroll.”
Remedy Cranford offers temporary, temporary-to-hire, and direct placement positions in the clerical, industrial, marketing, sales, purchasing, health care, logistics, and technical fields.
“With hands-on business experience as Director of International Sales and Marketing at blue-chip companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble, Jenny offers a first-hand perspective of what businesses need to be successful,” says Irwin Much, President of Remedy’s Franchise division. “Developing short and long-term business strategies and finding creative ways around unexpected obstacles is in my DNA,” adds Monteleone.
