Spotlight: Temporary Staff
When it comes to construction staffing, temporary labor is not only a good option; it is a necessary one. Granted, construction companies and foremen might have particular skilled laborers in mind who can save them time when they are going through the staffing phase of a new project. But what about the support staff who may not need specialized skills? Every job site needs clean up and staff to work in assisting roles. We all know that the craftsmen would not get the job done without backup.
That’s where we come in. We provide unskilled workers for any job site with as little effort as a phone call. You do not have to spend time interviewing candidates or worry about paying the various costs associated with full-time employees, like insurance or payroll services. We can send workers in right away who are ready to help your more advanced guys get the job done. Interviewing is a main focus of our business, so we know how to spot a good candidate and then make sure they work out in the field. You also get to choose how many workers you need and on which days, so every job stays within budget.
We know that experience is essential. Even unskilled workers need to know their way around a jobsite. Our temporary staff goes through safety training courses to ensure that they are aware of how to react in any situation. After that we place them in the field where they gain they experience they need to perform. Between training and time in the field, our workers evolve into assets in their position. They need less supervision and micro-management than employees hired fresh off the street. They are often cross-trained as well. Our guys can clean up job sites and equipment, unload materials and back up skilled workers like carpenters and electricians. This is really all that you can ask for from an unskilled worker.
One last point to make is preparation. How many times have you seen laborers show up without the proper equipment and wondered how they intended to work? You can’t get a job done if you don’t have the material–it’s that simple. We get it, and that’s why we make sure that our laborers are ready to work before they get to your site. If the job calls for it, we supply:
- Back Belts
- Dust Masks
- Ear Plugs
- Hard Hats
- Safety Boots
- Safety Glasses
- Safety Goggles
When you call us, you’ll have no headaches first thing in the morning because a low-level guy showed up unprepared. We make sure of it and so should any agency that works with you to staff your project. We advise that you make sure anyone who sends you staff has thought these things through in advance, you will see the difference in the quality of the work.
