Miami Dade County – Administrative Staff Support

About Miami Dade County

Home to thirty-four incorporated cities and serving a population of more than 2 million, Miami-Dade County is the 7th largest municipal government entity in the United States. The government agency is made up of 25 active departments employing hundreds of temporary and permanent employees each year.

Why Miami Dade County Partnered with Alpha1 Staffing

In 2011 Miami- Dade County requested bid responses for temporary employment services for five years. Following the results of the bid, many of the 1st tier companies could not adhere to the requirements of the contract due to lack of staff, effective processes, and capital. Miami – Dade County needed a staffing partner that could supply qualified candidates in a timely manner, manage candidate selection and assessment, onboarding, and compensation of temporary workers within the county budgetary constraints.

The Need

Miami- Dade County needed an experienced, reliable staffing partner with the financial and human capital resources to hire and compensate temporary employees to support 25 service departments.

The Plan

  • Evaluate the job descriptions of Miami Dade County’s most common administrative titles: clerk, office assistant, administrative officer, accounting clerk, and receptionist
  • Develop rubric to assess admin/ clerical candidates based on most common technical, human and conceptual skills and aptitudes
  • Actively market our services and opportunities to administrative professionals via social sites and digital strategies to expand our pool of qualified, administrative professionals
  • Streamline our process ensuring we could contact, assess, and submit candidates to job orders within 72 hours

Competitive Analysis

Offering Miami-Dade County vetted candidates within their budgetary constraints was important to us. While their staffing partners were supplying candidates that met the requirements of the job description, none were assessing their technical, human, and conceptual aptitude. Additionally, our competitors were not supplying opportunities for ongoing training throughout the length of the assignment. Our findings presented an opportunity to add value beyond the original scope of services.

A Proven Successful Partnership

Because of our analysis and value-added service offerings, Alpha1 became Miami-Dade’s prime supplier of clerical professionals. We were gradually awarded a larger percentage of job orders throughout the length of the 5-year contract.
