PrintStaff and Printing industries of New England (PINE) Partner in Staffing

Press release from the issuing company

April 12, 2002 – PrintStaff, Boston (MA) and Printing Industries of New England (PINE) Southborough (MA), have completed an agreement to offer PrintStaff’s flexible staffing at a discount to PINE member companies. This discount program enhances the existing program that reduces the conversion fee to members of PINE. The existing member program has been in place since January 2001. This new member benefit is especially valuable now with the increased move toward the use of flexible hiring practices. As the market is still unsteady, using qualified, temporary production personnel meets delivery needs and preserves a lower fixed expense objective. Core Staff - Each company has a group of dedicated employee's that they protected at all costs. These workers each have in common certain attributes: A rare skill set, a great work ethic, excellent knowledge of your client base and your internal processes. The success of any company depends on these people. Letting one of them go or losing one of them to your competition can be a disaster. Especially since the only thing that differentiates your company from another is your people. By offering PrintStaff’s flexible staffing services at a discount to PINE members, PINE has allowed member companies the competitive edge in core staff retention augmented by skilled flexible staff personnel. PrintStaff is the largest print staffing agency in the country. They supply skilled personnel for short term or long term flexible staffing, trial to hire, and direct hire placement.
