Batting Average (AVG)

One of the oldest and most universal tools to measure a baseball hitter's success at the plate, batting average is determined by dividing a player's hits by his total at-bats for a number between zero (shown as .000) and one (1.000). In recent years, the league-wide batting average has typically hovered around .260. From MLB.com

On occasion, a few hitters of the (MLB) Major League Baseball surpass the averages and hit .300 maybe .340% mark for an entire season.  Or in other words, for every 10 times at-bat, the player hits the ball and gets on base roughly 3 times.  This batting average is one of the many useful tools to help measure a hitter’s performance.  What this batting average won’t tell you is, how many times do the better players end up on base due to being walked, or hit by a pitch. Furthermore, this batting average does not tell what type or quality of hits have happened.  Were they singles, doubles, home runs, or did they end up on base due to an outfielder failing to catch the ball?   To keep things in context and aligned with this analogy, I will stick with the simple definition of baseballs batting average. 

The Reality of an 8% Difference

I find it crazy how much more money is offered to these “better” hitters vs. your average hitters.  Let me say it this way.  If you hit the ball and get on base 26% of the time, you will be considered average.  However, if you hit the ball and end up on base 34% of the time, you get MORE, WAY MORE!! 

Bigger paycheck, more time at the plate, larger endorsements, TV and Radio commercials, pictures on magazines, and possibly your own shoe.  An 8% hitting increase will take you from an everyday baseball hitter to a God.

Bringing Baseball Back to Staffing

The staffing world works similarly to measuring baseballs hitting averages.  How?

If Your Employment Solutions (YES) wishes to be seen as a top staffing agency, have our picture on magazines, and maybe even our own shoe endorsement deal (“THE YES220 special edition”) our fill ratios, speed, consistency, quality and overall performance must all prove to be better than the average staffing agency. 

There are 30 times more staffing agencies in the United States than there are MLB baseball players.  What sets you apart from the rest?

In baseball, you have a stat sheets, videos, live practices and tryouts all before an offer is made to a player.  In the staffing world, do you have a stat sheet, measuring mechanism, or a visual of some kind that proves you bat better than your competitors?

Quit selling service, price and quality. Everyone does that. That makes you average.

YES Bats Better Than Average

Your Employment Solutions is not average, we have our stat sheets, we fill our jobs better and therefore bat better than any other staffing agency, and we are ready for our “YES220” shoe deal.
