Hydrodec North America

Workforce Challenge

Hydrodec North America is a one-of-a-kind oil reprocessing facility. With a capacity of 8 million gallons per year, the plant recycles spent transformer oil and converts it into new transformer oil which can be used and reused by utilities across the country with virtually zero emissions. The Employment Source (TES) was part of the team of local, state and federal officials that worked together to bring this company to Canton, Ohio. It was the company's first location in North America.

Workforce Solution

Then and now, Hydrodec utilizes The Employment Source's job screening services for all their job orders. The company also uses TES's JobFit system, an online assessment tool designed to help employers hire and retain employees. Prior to opening the plant Hydrodec used the TES facility to interview potential employees, and then upon hiring, conducted employee orientations there as well. Five of the employees recruited for the company were dislocated workers. Because of the close connection and partnership between Hydrodec and TES, these employees began working at Hydrodec on the Monday following their layoffs with no gap in employment. It was a seamless transition to new employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

TES has had 14 job orders and 15 placements from Hydrodec with an average wage of $56,000 per year. In addition to job recruitment and screening, TES was able to assist the company with creating an employee handbook and providing them with wage and benefit information. As they began their business in Canton, The Employment Source was helpful in getting them off to a successful start with a qualified workforce.
