COVID-19 has changed the way businesses work around the world. Companies are trying their best to renew their operations and maintain an income while ensuring their employees’ and clients’ safety.  

This is easier said than done. But there are a couple of ways these effects can be mitigated, one of them is: outsourcing. Although many companies had to scale down their operations and others were forced to shut down, with the benefits of outsourcing, that doesn’t have to be the case.    

Outsourcing companies are still able to provide services to alleviate the repercussions during these unprecedented times. For instance, Lean Staffing Solutions, has over 10 years of experience in the logistics and transportation industry, providing clients with staffing, tech, marketing, and sales solutions, delivering cost-efficient reliable services.    

Advantages of having a satellite office

Handling a more significant number of customers due to eCommerce’s growth is a tough task. But this becomes easier by outsourcing some processes of your business.    

Lean Staffing Solutions’ business model requires remote work, the usage of technological features to ensure workflow, and motivated professionals that quickly adapt and are ready for any necessary change in their work environment.    

1. Remote work: Home office  

For many companies, having their employees work from home has become a significant issue. Most employees are not used to working out of the office. Mixing work-life with family life is challenging; stress levels can increase, and overall performance is affected.    

At Lean Staffing Solutions, our employees are familiar with working remotely. Being an extension of a US-based company’s office requires us to operate from a distance, and to guarantee a constant and efficient communication with clients and responding to their needs. Our Quality Assurance teams are there to ensure the same measure of productivity, whether working remotely from home or the office.  

Currently, 90% of Lean Staffing Solutions’ employees work from home while still maintaining excellent results. Their outstanding performance is what keeps our clients satisfied.    

2. Use of technologies to communicate  

Technology has become a key ally for companies as it supports their workflow. For many companies, migrating to a tech environment can be tedious and complicated. But for us at Lean Staffing Solutions, working from a distance is our normal.    

Emails and virtual meetings have always been the norm at Lean Staffing. Since day one, our employees have interacted with the parent company and the company’s clients from a remote location.    

3. Motivated and skilled professionals    

At Lean Staffing Solutions, there are more than a thousand young professionals eager to learn and adapt to any environment. Managing and understanding technology is something that young adults are experienced in, which helps enhance their performance.    

Feeling part of a great team and forming a stronger bond, is the first step to having employees stick through the hard times and relish on the good ones. At Lean Staffing Solutions, we care for and understand our employees’ needs and always ensure their well-being.    

“At Lean Staffing Solutions, we have experienced continuous growth and we’ve been able to keep our productivity up by providing our staff nationwide with all the tools and support they’ve needed which has brought us amazing results. This has been possible because of our employee’s hard work. It’s been several months since we have been able to share our offices and work side by side but rest assured, we feel like an even stronger family now more than ever before.”
Daniel Agamez, National Director of Operations and Implementations.

Overcoming a pandemic is not an easy task. The global economy has been affected, and many companies had to close their operations. Although these are challenging times, the only way companies will thrive is by adapting to the new way of life. Having a positive mindset, motivating your employees, and taking advantage of technology, will make your company succeed and will help you to continue providing the best solutions for your clients.
