While she serves a range of corporate clients, Hubiak also specializes in serving small-and medium-size business that can’t afford to maintain their own human resources departments to recruit, screen, and train personnel. Hubiak knows how critical it is to make the right hire.
“Putting the right team together is crucial for any business,” Hubiak says. “We’re able to step in and devote the necessary amount of time in pre-qualifying and matching the right candidate up to the right job. It’s a process that a lot of business owners may not have time for and only need to do occasionally, but it’s important that it be done successfully.”
In 2005, an average of 2.9 million temporary and contract workers were employed every day in the American marketplace, according to the American Staffing Association’s quarterly employment and sales survey. Industry sales reached $81.9 billion in 2005, a 10.5 percent increase from 2004 and three times the last year’s rate of growth for the overall economy. One reason for the industry’s continued growth is flexibility in services. Hubiak’s company showed just how a personnel staffing service can be when she made the decision for HR Solutions to acquire VandyMeds from the Vanderburgh County Medical Society earlier this year. VandyMeds was created by the medical society after their members complained of how difficult it was to find qualified and experienced employees specializing in medical and dental care.
Caren Whitehouse, executive director of the Vanderburgh County Medical Society, says doctors and dentists have increasingly found themselves dealing with a complex range of human resource issues, spurred in part by the complicated funding formulas of insurance providers. Yet few doctors and dentists have the time or the knowledge to run a small business. “With any business, you spend a lot of time trying to get the right people on the right bus going in the right direction,” Hubiak says. “That’s what we do best.”
