Lots of different industries rely heavily on the labour hire industry, especially in construction where there is a massive shortage of skilled workers for new and ongoing projects. With such a high demand for skilled workers, you will find a long list of potential labour hire companies to hire your workforce from. But what should you be looking for in a labour hire agency? What would make one stand out from the rest?
Although this seems like a pretty obvious point, often when looking for skilled workers and working to tight deadlines it can be easy to get distracted by cheap rates and promises from sales people without doing proper research into a company’s reputation. At BriX Projects we have a fantastic reputation within the construction industry, which we’ve built (pardon the pun) over the years by providing exceptional workers for our clients and fulfilling our promises every time.
Commitment to Safety
Working in the construction industry means that you have to be committed to safety first, although unfortunately not all labour hire agencies take this as seriously as they should when supplying workers for projects. At BriX Projects safety comes first; our workplace health and safety systems are certified against AS/NZS 4801:2001. Our Workplace Health & Safety Manager works with our employees to minimise safety risks, ensuring they arrive well trained in the latest health and safety practices and with all of the necessary PPE from day one. Our practice of regular safety checks on site reinforce this commitment. Don’t be caught out by a labour hire company that doesn’t commit to safety for their workers on site.
You’ve probably heard the term “people hire people” before, and this couldn’t be any truer than when you are selecting a labour hire agency to work with. You have to put trust into the person that is going to find you the right candidates for your job, you need to trust the candidate supplied and then trust that the labour hire agency will fulfil their end of the bargain when it comes to fulfilling wages for your workers. At BriX Projects labour hire you have access to our team of very talented people; from our Resource Managers who will source the right candidate for your specific needs, to our Client Managers who you will work with directly, to our admin staff who complete the tricky ins and outs such as payroll! It is the relationship that you build with your point of contact here at BriX that will set us apart from the rest; our team are dedicated, resourceful and will go above and beyond for all of their clients.
