Australia’s construction, mining, oil and gas industries have always been at the forefront of political agendas both nationally and on the global stage; however it has received even more attention since world stocks fell again this earlier year, leaving China in a four-year low bringing into question the state of future of Australian industries and the possibility of a recession.
In the current economic climate, and with so much uncertainty in the air, how can Australian businesses protect themselves from the negative impacts of a possible economic downturn? Planning for recession is the last thing that businesses want to have to do but it’s becoming unavoidable for some. One way to future-proof your business is to become innovative and work with what resources are available in your own backyard.
Skilled labour hire could be crucial to your core business objective especially if there is a potential threat of a recession. Using a labour hire agency to source your workforce is a cost-effective action that could save your business a substantial amount of money and resources, both short and long term. If you are running a project in a major capital city, like Sydney, you have the advantage of tapping into a large pool of local skilled labour hire candidates, which means that you can have ‘hands on deck’ fast saving you time and ultimately money.
From a fiscal point of view, hiring local skilled tradesmen through labour hire will save an exponential amount of money in the budget that would otherwise be spent on full-time permanent staff. This extra savings could be injected into other areas of the business to counteract the negative impacts a recession would bring. From a business point of view, using labour hire employees means that you are getting the best people for the job just faster and without the distraction of the recruitment process, or being tied down to having to employ them full time despite there not being a need in the business. Essentially, you can bring in a labour hire team when you need extra staff, and not have to worry about covering their wages when you are going through a “quiet patch”. You can spend more time focusing on the delivering on your contractual commitments with a team of qualified and skilled employees.
