Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers, launched the company in December 2015 and initially focused on project-based work for automation manufacturing professionals. FactoryFix’s focus quickly expanded to include contract-to-hire and direct-hire roles, and also expanded its candidate pool to include machinists, engineers, maintenance technicians and more.
“I wanted to jump into technology pretty much my whole life, and this was the perfect opportunity. I knew this idea would solve a real problem right away in an industry that tends to be slow to adapt to the digital world,” shared O’Rahilly.
Finding skilled talent in the manufacturing industry is not easy and FactoryFix solves the problem. The company handles all time sheets and payment. The goal is to provide the best aspects of an online job board — affordability and the ability to reach a wide audience — with the hands-on approach of a staffing firm. O’Rahilly added that FactoryFix further differentiates with its subject matter expertise and focus on data.
FactoryFix’s platform purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Access to the best manufacturing candidates is ensured with more than 180,000 manufacturing workers that have joined the network. Companies that engage with a subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles.
Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.
The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:
- At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
- 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
- 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board
FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process. TalentText is an SMS messaging feature that connects applicants with managers via a text conversation, helping managers to engage directly, ease conversation flow, and ensure candidates actually show up to interviews. It allows a connection with candidates five times faster with straightforward, comfortable, and immediate access to messages via mobile devices.
