Temporary labor companies offer considerable advantages to construction businesses. Filling out your staff with temporary - and qualified - people can help you meet a number of mission-critical goals:
Flexibility for Growth
You may think a certain job is simply beyond your business's current capacity. This isn't always the case. Many construction companies are able to expand rapidly and safely by using temporary construction labor.
Entrust your search to a company with extensive experience in the field, and you'll see a range of qualified candidates. This allows you to grow your workforce quickly and as needed.
Minimizing Labor Costs
Your temporary laborers are not committed outside of the current job you've decided to take on. You can grow your business's capabilities quickly, and then shrink your workforce when the project is finished. Workers will know this from the outset, so they won't be surprised or upset when the job is concluded.
This helps you find the perfect balance between permanent and temporary labor that works for your financial picture.
Trying Out for Permanent Positions
Hire for a permanent position and the candidate may not work out. Then you've got a sticky situation where you have to fire someone and figure out the benefits picture that results. Beyond this, it can risk giving your business a reputation for not sticking by its workers or coming through on promises.
If you hire a worker in a temp-to-hire position, it's understood that they're trying out for the position. This gives you an opportunity to work with them and assess how well they fit your work environment before hiring them permanently.
Working with temporary labor companies means that their connections are open to you. Temporary construction labor can often find training and certification opportunities that aren't available elsewhere. For instance, Labor for Hire offers OSHA certification for its temporary workers, as well as connections to a range of other training opportunities. This can take the perfect candidates for skilled and unskilled positions and get them qualified for you quickly.
The construction industry moves fast; now your business can too.
