This workforce success story highlights how Doherty successfully utilized our employment expertise to implement a tailored solution for an employer in the food production industry.


This company is a leading organization with 25+ years of pasta production experience, focusing on sourcing durum directly from farmers, milling semolina, and creating premium quality pasta. Doherty Staffing Solutions’ (Doherty) partnership was successful at their New Hope, MN manufacturing facility, which houses 200-500 employees.


This facility was struggling to find qualified talent they could retain. Their candidate retention issues led to the current employees having to participate in mandatory overtime. With this facility not being at maximum talent capacity, this led to slower or shut-down production lines. With all of these challenges working against this facility, they couldn’t provide their products to stay on top of client demands.

Their Production Manager said, “We were so short-staffed that production lines even had to shut down on occasion.”


Doherty partnered with this facility using a direct hire employment model, allowing recruiters to utilize their brand and full compensation package to deliver quality talent quickly. Our recruiters’ actions were so effective that the facility’s internal hiring team paused their employment efforts several times due to an abundance of talent. Halting the recruitment efforts was an excellent problem to have, as this allowed the facility’s internal hiring team the time to onboard and train all new employees properly.


By depending on Doherty as this facility’s employment partner, they enjoyed having qualified people in their open positions, which included extruders, material handlers, and machine operators. These essential roles demanded a speedy response, which was realized within four months of starting their collaboration with Doherty. Our recruiting support allowed this facility to regain full production capacity and earned us access to additional employment areas within the company.

Their Production Manager said, “We’ve experienced less employee burn-out due to not requiring overtime since being 100% staffed.” The initial success Doherty had at the company’s Minnesota facility led to a solution expansion within North Dakota facilities.


Due to the initial success at this manufacturing company’s MN facility, we were able to expand our solutions to their ND facilities as well.

As illustrated in this workforce success story, Doherty is familiar with the talent management challenges with recruiting direct-hire talent for employment success and knows how to apply our 40+ years of employment expertise to craft a custom solution that can work for your business.
