Placing High-Volume Entry-Level Talent

Dahl Consulting (DAHL) offers a wide range of customizable employment solutions to meet each company’s hiring needs, whether it’s helping with large-volume temporary staffing, payrolling your contingent workforce, or finding the right professional to complete your team. We work alongside human resources managers, leadership team members, and other hiring professionals within your organization to ensure an efficient and timely process. This workforce success story highlights how DAHL successfully utilized our employment expertise to implement a tailored solution for an employer in the supply chain industry. 


This company is a leading provider of multimodal transportation services and third-party logistics. They partner with organizations of all sizes to solve logistical supply chain challenges to “go further, faster.”


The primary challenge for this company was filling all the seats for their high-volume entry-level positions. Finding and retaining the right people for these roles became a struggle due to the nature of the role, where candidates would need to work hard to learn the business from the ground up in order to move up in the company. The hassle of trying to keep these roles filled with quality candidates became a very expensive and time-consuming process. To try to fix their problem, the HR department first tried to hire permanent candidates. Unfortunately, there was still a high turnover rate. The second solution they attempted involved creating an internal HR team to help source talent for these roles at a flat fee per permanent placement. Sadly, it garnered the same results.


DAHL presented the opportunity to bring in candidates under a temp-to-hire employment arrangement instead of placing permanent employees. This way, both the company and the candidates would have a 3-4 month “trial period.” This solution would help to keep roles filled, while also finding candidates that were the right fit for the role.

Key Results

DAHL helped the HR department come up with a solution that resulted in a much higher retention rate and overall better filling of roles. In fact, in the past seven years, DAHL has filled over 250 roles for this client. The client shared that “the peace of mind that DAHL will deliver qualified candidates is immeasurable.” Additionally, DAHL was able to help with other aspects of HR, effectively streamlining the entire interview, onboarding, and payroll process.

As illustrated in this workforce success story, DAHL is familiar with the talent management challenges within the supply chain industry and knows how to apply our 40+ years of employment expertise to craft a custom solution that can work for your business.
