Meet RGIS Inventory Specialists

Workforce Challenge

RGIS Inventory Specialists had a hard time filling vacancies for part-time inventory positions. They posted advertisements on various websites but were unable to secure the number of qualified candidates to effectively operate their business.

Workforce Solution

The Jefferson County American Job Center staff first ensured that RGIS was active on the state employment website,, and that current openings were posting correctly. Next, RGIS was invited to participate in several “Now Hiring” events in the Career Center in which any job seeker can walk up, fill out an application, interview, and potentially be hired on-the-spot.

Outcomes & Benefits

During their first "Now Hiring" event, RGIS interviewed 15 applicants and hired eight people in four hours. They had similar results in the subsequent events and now have a steady stream of applications. RGIS was extremely happy with the outcome and plan to hold more events in the future.
