Patrick O’Rahilly of FactoryFix Discusses Industrial Talent as a Service (ITaaS) in Evolving Enterprise Magazine

Patrick O’Rahilly, CEO and Founder of FactoryFix, an online platform which matches vetted manufacturing workers with companies seeking specific skill sets, was recently profiled in Evolving Enterprise magazine. Manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler, spoke with O’Rahilly about Industrial Talent as a Service (ITaaS) as a single-source approach freeing up human resource professionals for onboarding new staff members and ensuring regulatory compliance.

The labor market, according to O’Rahilly, is beyond tight. “It’s as bad as I’ve ever seen, and manufacturers have this unique problem because they are unable to offer hybrid flexibility work from home options. So, there is an inherent disadvantage of attracting talent, especially for more entry-level positions. In addition, manufacturers operate on thin margins and cannot simply raise wages, raise prices, and everything will be handled.”

The Evolving Enterprise is the new digital magazine bringing real-world applications for headline technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

About FactoryFix: 

FactoryFix is a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers. The platform’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.

O’Rahilly explained, “The result is a tremendous time and cost savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.”

Companies that engage in an annual subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles.
