The Benefits Of Hiring Through A Staffing Agency 

Construction jobs are a different beast in comparison to your standard 9-to-5 office jobs. But what makes construction jobs special also plays in favour of staffing agencies, which are exclusively equipped to consistently find reliable skilled workers.

Here are 4 reasons as to why staffing agencies are great for hiring construction jobs:

An abundance of temporary workers: Unlike other sectors, construction is teeming with temporary openings. Seasonal limitations, paired with the per-project nature of the work, make construction jobs malleable to temporary positions. The problem is that your average candidate surfing online job boards tends to look for permanent employment. 

On the contrary, workers seeking temporary employment prefer turning to staffing agencies. They know that a well-connected staffing agency can get them on a lucrative project much quicker than an in-house HR department can. As a result, staffing agencies usually have a stable pipeline of willing and proven temporary workers waiting for their next assignment. 

If you need to hire temporary staff for a special contract or to simply replace other workers on leave, hitting up a staffing agency is one of the most efficient ways to do that. 

A shorter recruiting process: How many times was a project delayed until the year after because the hiring process took longer than expected? For a sector with so much fluctuation and reliance on seasonal climate conditions, assembling the workforce needed for a given project as efficiently as possible is crucial. 

Staffing agencies will focus their time and resources solely on attracting and recruiting the right talent. Furthermore, a staffing agency that specializes in the sector has an expansive network of applicants, both active and passive, to draw from. 

Multiple purpose workers: It can be challenging to sell a multi-position job on an online job board. Yet, workers who can do a little bit of everything are the lifeblood of the construction sector. Workers who can haul heavy material one day and build something out of them on the next are just as important as your carpenters and welders.  

Staffing agencies excel at supplying employers with highly versatile workers. When a staffing agency receives a candidate’s application, it automatically assesses all the roles the applicant can do. Consequently, staffing agencies are usually filled to the brim with workers with a diverse skill set.

No training needed: Construction projects are time-sensitive; sometimes, you just do not have the time to train a new recruit. Would it not be nice that a talent pool consisting solely of experienced workers existed? 

A staffing agency is exactly that. When it comes to temporary workers, the staffing agency takes over the entire hiring process for you. It will find, interview, and assess the candidate for you. Not only does that save you a lot of time, it also ensures that all personnel provided has already been vetted for experience and competency.
