This workforce success story highlights how Doherty successfully utilized our employment expertise to help provide payrolled contingent workers during a corporate hiring freeze for a powersports manufacturing company in multiple facilities throughout the United States.


This organization is a prominent powersports vehicle manufacturer. Their company is comprised of over 16,000 employees with multiple facility locations throughout the United States. Doherty Staffing Solutions (Doherty) partnered with six of their manufacturing facilities in different states to implement our comprehensive and customized payrolling solution for their light industrial contingent workers.


Faced with a corporate headquarters hiring freeze that put a halt to expanding direct hiring on their internal production teams, the powersports vehicle manufacturer was at a critical juncture. The internal HR teams found themselves in a predicament, unable to fill vital positions despite the clear need to ramp up production capabilities to meet rising demand. Specifically, the manufacturing facilities in Minnesota and Wisconsin were in dire need of additional manpower, including skilled Forklift Operators, Material Handlers, and Machine Operators, to sustain and enhance their production output to meet rising demands without compromising on efficiency or safety standards.


Doherty was able to partner with all six facilities acting as the Employer of Record (EOR) and thereby enabling the manufacturer to navigate around the corporate-mandated hiring freeze effectively. This strategic partnership entailed Doherty putting workers on its payroll as contingent workers rather than direct. Because these workers were pre-identified and selected by internal HR teams, Doherty offered our services at a reduced rate, thereby alleviating the financial and administrative burdens associated with direct employment. By handling all onboarding, background check administration, co-employment assessments, payrolling, benefits administration, and offboarding, Doherty facilitated a seamless integration of much-needed workers into the manufacturing processes, ensuring that the facilities remained on track to achieve their production goals without high employment costs associated with a full staffing agreement.


The implementation of Doherty’s payrolling solution has been nothing short of transformative for these manufacturing facilities. Since the inception of this partnership in 2021, over 90 payrolled workers have been successfully integrated into the company’s workforce across six manufacturing facilities. This influx of talent has significantly bolstered the operational capabilities of these sites, enabling them to meet and exceed production targets while adhering to the highest standards of quality and efficiency.


Key results include the placement of over 90 payrolled workers since 2021 and a partnership with six manufacturing facilities across five different states.

As illustrated in this workforce success story, Doherty is familiar with the challenges of navigating corporate hiring freezes and knows how to apply our 40+ years of employment expertise to craft a custom payrolling solution that can work for your business.
