Unlike most staffing agencies, which do not follow a consistent screening process; our SureFit™ process utilizes DiscoverFit, SkillFit and QualityFit steps to provide our customers access to a broad array of skilled and knowledgeable craftsmen and safety professionals ideally suited for client projects.


SureFit

RP Skilled Services understands that projects are not the same, neither is the type of skilled resource required for every project the same. Our SureFit process assists us in conducting a project and technical needs analysis for projects our clients seek assistance on. This analysis helps ensure we provide you a skilled laborer that possesses the exact skills you desire

  • Conduct a Project Analysis: Determine the reason for the resource need, how long the project is projected to run.
  • Determine Qualifications Analysis: What are the specific skills, certifications, and years' experience required.
  • Discuss how soon resources should be presented, travel and other job specific expectations and feedback on completed assignments.
