Construction Staffing Solutions to Get the Best People on the Job

Finding the right industry professionals and staff for your construction projects is not always easy. Construction employment agencies can lighten your load and make staffing run more smoothly from start to finish.

Think about the challenges you typically face when hiring. Are your best people retiring? Do you struggle to find construction industry specialists in the current job market? Do you have too many employees left on the payroll once the job ends? Not to mention all the time you’re spending posting vacancies on job boards and combing through resumes that don’t fit your needs. 

A construction staffing agency can alleviate the burden of recruiting and hiring for your internal needs as well as your construction project’s needs. 

Construction Employment Agencies Find Staff on Your Terms

You know what you need when it comes to hiring staff for your upcoming project. It’s just not always easy to find it. Whether it’s extra field supervision for a months-long project or a crane operator to come in for just a week, a staffing agency can help you find the best construction industry talent for the job.

Wide Talent Pool

One of the biggest challenges in construction hiring is finding the right industry experience for the job and your project specific requirements. Your job posting may not reach every potential candidate. Construction employment agencies with nationwide talent pools can recruit from a much more extensive selection of people- including both active and, more importantly, top passive construction industry candidates. 

Passive talent includes those who may not be actively searching for a job, but who can be recruited for your project specific or staff level hiring needs. Employment agencies also tend to attract recently retired workers who are looking for some temporary contract work during construction season. These employees are a boon to a busy construction agency because they have years of experience in the field.

Options to Fit Your Needs

Another benefit of using a staffing agency is the flexibility to hire someone for the exact length of time that you need them. You can choose from various options:

  • Contract
  • Contract to hire
  • Direct hire
  • Payrolling Services 

This ensures you are only paying for work when you actually have work being done. In construction, you need a much larger crew during the busy season when projects are running, but all those employees become unnecessary during the off-season. Short-term contracts solve this issue. 

With a staffing agency, you can also choose to outsource your payroll services to the agency, which is great for contract work in particular. 

When you are looking for new permanent employees, construction staffing agencies are available to vet a diverse pool of applicants to find the most qualified construction industry talent for your company and project. 

Specialized Skills

If you need a construction professional  for a specific project, it may not make sense to hire one on full-time. You need a project-specific contract that allows you to ramp-up and ramp-down your headcount as needed and specifies the amount of work to be completed. 

A staffing agency can help you find the experienced professionals you need when you need them. 

Save Time and Money

You’re busy. Juggling multiple staff contracts and constantly seeking out new talent can be a drain on your productivity and cut into your budget. You need staff dedicated to recruiting, interviewing, hiring, onboarding, and training your new hires. When this process needs to repeat for every project every year, the time and money costs can add up quickly. A construction employment agency can be the solution. 

One Point of Contact  

When you hire through an agency, you have one point of contact. This means no more dealing with various job posting platforms and contacting a slew of candidates yourself. Your agency will recruit and narrow down your applicant pool for you.

New Hires are Ready to Work

When you handle the hiring process yourself, you need to complete a lot of onboarding and paperwork before your new employee can start working. With contract-based hiring through a staffing agency, you can avoid many of these time-consuming processes and focus on your core business demands. Your new staff will come to you ready to start work on day one.
