And how Remedy Intelligent Staffing franchise owners are meeting the challenge in ways no other staffing agency franchise could.

As eCommerce continues to gain ground as the fastest-growing segment of retail sale, more people are spending and more products are moving. That requires an exponential amount of labor to keep up with that demand, and Remedy Intelligent Staffing franchises are poised to sell solutions that efficiently and expertly address those challenges.

“I’ve been in this business for 26 years, and there is an unprecedented level of competition for labor right now along with a chronic, sustained shortage of workers available,” says Keith Wisner, Vice President of Customer & Workforce Insights for EmployBridge, Remedy’s parent company.

While it might seem counterintuitive, eCommerce is more labor-intensive than traditional brick-and-mortar retail — and it’s growing three times as fast, Wisner says. That presents a growing opportunity that Remedy franchise owners are poised to benefit from.

“Now you have the perfect storm. It becomes an all-out competition for labor.”

How Remedy can out-compete staffing agencies

Staffing companies will go to all sorts of lengths to compete for that labor. During the Christmas season, for instance, pay rates are often temporarily inflated, and it’s not unusual to see offers of gift cards, free product, flexible schedules — companies will do just about anything to fill the jobs at warehouses and distribution centers so they can keep up with demand.”
