Finding good workers isn’t like it used to be.
Most of us are all too familiar with the challenges presented by the constantly evolving labor market that has been thrust upon us by a wide range of factors beyond our control: supply chain issues, the remote work phenomenon, shortages in skilled labor, inflation, and more. New and changing factors are consistently forcing organizations in all industries to reconsider how they address labor and recruitment. Organizations need to be more nimble and flexible in their approach to fill gaps in production, meet increased demand that an opportunity may produce, or find more qualified candidates to better balance costs with productivity.
How do you defy the skilled-labor shortage?
Our experienced team has spent years developing an expert craftworker pool of qualified carpenters, welders, electricians, pipefitters, machinists, and engineers, many of whom have followed the labor market in becoming more comfortable with adjusting to seasonality and location in an effort to stay busy with more right-fit jobs that keep them challenged, earning, and developing. Discover more candidates by dipping into this pool of qualified tradespeople that are capable and willing to make the journey for good jobs. Adding contract labor to augment your full-time roster will give you another lever to pull when demand requires, time is critical, and a particular skill set is needed. There may be more resources at your disposal than you imagined.
Match the talent to the task.
A major part of leveraging traveling, contract workers is the ability to match the right experience and skill level to job requirements every time, everywhere. You may find that adding the high-performing talent of a truly skilled craftsperson can allow your team to focus on tasks better suited to their role, or keep their focus on the core business while adding short-term fire-power for special projects. By having a perfect-fit player in the job you will be assured of the results without additional training or stress.
Reduce your stress and risk.
When you have an experienced, qualified craftsperson on the job you can rest a little easier and have confidence in hitting your objectives. You also have the added benefit of limiting your risk. This route is ideal for projects and companies needing temporary employment, short-term labor and/or back-office support. Limit your exposure, time demands, and costs associated with finding the perfect tradesperson.
