Absenteeism is a constant cause of stress for most employers here in Australia. Whether someone isn’t feeling well and have called in sick for the day, a couple of days or the week. Or perhaps you have staff that are taking full advantage of a holiday entitlement at a busy time for you, having your employees missing can make a big difference to your business and there is very little you can do about it. Or is there something you can do?
How labour hire can help
You may or may not have considered labour hire as an option for your projects in the past, but if you are having trouble with absenteeism amongst your team then this might be an option for you to consider. Labour hire agencies can provide you with skilled, experienced and qualified workers when you need them, whether it be for a day, a week a month or a year.
5 reasons why you should consider labour hire
Replace your team quickly
As a labour hire agency we have hundreds of potential candidates for roles, so if you’re looking somebody quickly we can tap into our resources and find you the right person for the job. Traditionally the recruitment process for replacing an employee takes significantly longer. A labour hire agency is only a phone call away from quickly replacing a missing team member.
If you have an employee that is going to be off sick for the week or has taken a holiday at a particularly busy time for you, then labour hire can provide a great short-term solution for you. You can hire someone to replace your regular employee for the exact duration of their time away from work.
Hassle free solutions
The labour hire agency will take care of all employment contracts, payroll and insurances. You simply identify what you need and when and your labour hire agency can take care of the rest. You don’t have to worry about contracts, full time employees or what to do with them when you don’t need them anymore.
Whatever the role, there’s a candidate
Labour hire agencies don’t just provide labourers, we have potential candidates for your project across a massive spectrum of trades, with different levels of experience, qualifications and skills. So no matter what role you need to replace temporarily, the chances are we have several potential candidates for you.
You still have control
As the client you are still fully in control. You can decide exactly which candidates you are happy to have working on your project, and if you’re not happy with the candidate they can be easily replaced on your instruction.
Can labour hire remove the problem of absenteeism?
We certainly like to think so. Not only the reasons we have mentioned above as to why to consider labour hire for your project when your team members are missing in action, but also in general. Using a labour hire agency ensures that when you require workers they are provided, and if someone doesn’t turn up (which very rarely occurs) then they can be easily replaced the same day, a luxury employees of permanent staff would love to have.
