Construction And The Need For Labour Hire

Construction And The Need For Labour Hire

The construction industry’s use of labour hire has soared in the past decade.  Previously, labour hire was predominantly used to fill staff shortages when employees were sick or taking leave. Labour hire was also used to replace employees for small and simple positions that did not require too much experience such as data entry and filing officers. In recent times, labour hire has become an increasingly popular way to fulfil staffing needs in many industries. 

The Construction Industry has become a frequent user of labour hire due to the ‘project’ nature of the industry. Most construction work is completed in projects. Projects are run on a specific time frame and therefore is temporary in nature. Few companies have neither employee numbers or skills on hand to perform this work. Most of the full time workers are on hand to complete tasks of their own and thus outsourcing labour is the solution!

When you choose to hire temporary employees through labour hire companies such as Labor Solutions, you are hiring workers to work on all parts of the project without committing to them permanently. Permanent staff have long term cost associations. Projects are constantly changing. Employee skills and numbers constantly evolve on projects. It is therefore imperative  that you have the flexibility to hire temporary employees as you see fit and necessary. Whilst achieving this you also do not want staff on full time wages while they are waiting for the next project to start.
