Alternative Staffing: DCCS Fills 17 Open Lab Positions



In a recent engagement, our client needed to fill 17 open laboratory positions that were either being covered by expensive travelers or excessive staff overtime.


Working collaboratively with the client’s Human Resources executives we were able to develop and execute staffing fully credentialed, English-speaking Medical Laboratory Scientists from the Philippines. The organizational impact was significant.
