There was once a time when you found your “job for life”; you found an employer that ticked all of your boxes and you would stay loyal to them until you were ready to throw in the retirement towel. These days have been and gone, with employees constantly looking for the next best thing, a change of scenery, building new skills and meeting new people.
What does this mean as an employer?
Well it’s not to say that you can’t find those long-term, reliable employees anymore, but to ensure job satisfaction you really do have to go above and beyond. Offering new experiences, consistent training as well as ensuring they have plenty of “perks”.
Labour hire agencies can be useful for an employer as they can cover all of those bases for you. Why?
- As labour hire employees they are used to working on different projects and different worksites, keeping the job interesting and challenging for them.
- They need to be up to date with the latest skills and qualifications to remain competitive against other candidates, so your workers will be skilled and qualified, and if they’re not you can request someone that is!
- As they’re not your direct employee, the labour hire agency is responsible for ensuring that they are happy within their job, not yours.
- You can still have long-term employees using a labour hire agency, they can provide candidates for the duration of your project as well as shorter projects.
If labour hire isn’t something you’ve considered maybe it’s time to start thinking about it… you can save time looking for the right candidate, the labour hire agency does this for you. You can save money, as you won’t have to worry about the process of recruiting the candidate or worry about the administrative side of recruiting new staff. Another way of saving money is only having those employees working at the key times for your business, and not having to worry about someone on the payroll when you have little or no work for them.
