Meet Express Employment & Nichols Tillage Tools

Workforce Challenge

Express Employment Professionals is a staffing provider that has worked with the Sterling Workforce Center and has provided employment staffing services to a specific Sterling area employer, Nichols Tillage Tools, for many years. The company manufactures a large variety of tillage tools and farm implement repair parts, and the company sells its products through U.S. dealers. The company generally ramps up production in late summer to early fall and needed to fill several production laborer positions.

Workforce Solution

During the months of August and September, the Sterling Workforce Center scheduled and held two on-site hiring events that provided Express Employment representatives with private offices for interviewing candidates, resource computers for completing on-line applications, and employment paperwork and facilities to conduct drug screenings.

Outcomes & Benefits

Thirty-six candidates were interviewed at the hiring events held on August 18 and September 8. Seventeen candidates were hired from those pools and have begun working. Liz, with Express Employment, left this voicemail in early September: "I wanted to talk with you about setting up another hiring event in your office, possibly this week. Mr. Steve Brown with Nichols Tillage Tools was very happy with how the August 18 event went and contributes it to our partnership with the Workforce Center and staff."
