Whether you are a construction recruitment agency or a construction firm itself looking to hire the best of talent industry has to offer, here are a few important tips to help you in this quest.

Hire in the off season:

Conventional wisdom has it that you must never go grocery shopping while you are hungry. You tend to buy whatever you get at the earliest and that’s almost never a good bargain. Employing tradespeople on-demand has the same benefits.

So the best time to look for a tradesman is when you don’t require one. If you use it, you can find the kind of employee you’re looking for by scanning a wide range of skills. To save even more money, shop during the off-season when many construction workers are unemployed.

Pay the market rate:

A monkey is all you get for paying peanuts! Firms who pay below-market wages not only have the least-qualified and least-productive employees, but they are also the ones always in need of new workers. Why? As soon as a more lucrative opportunity arises for a competitor’s tradesmen, they will leave your company. Is it necessary for me to point out how detrimental it is to productivity as a whole?

Provide a safe work environment:

Workplace health and safety cannot be overstated when it comes to employee retention. Too many workers falling sick on site might force others to look for a safer option. Hiring managers may be reluctant to make a hire if a serious accident occurs on the job site.

Create a positive working environment:

There is something more than a good salary a qualified and talented tradesman look forward to. Bonuses, paid leaves, company outings, work-life balance, and retirement programmes are some of the perks that entice the best of talents. Quality employees are easier to recruit (and keep) if there is a greater desire to work for your company.

Invest in your workforce:

I haven’t met a tradesman who doesn’t like adding on new skills or getting a pat on the back for a job well done. So it’s a good idea to invest in your workforce. To help your business succeed, give your employees the opportunity to learn and grow. Workers’ productivity and product quality both benefit from training. Using this method, you can see who in your organisation has the potential to move up in the ranks. For more information click here:

Be in step with time and technology:

A company’s ability to attract and retain a younger, more tech-savvy workforce is enhanced when it embraces new technologies. You can also use it as a USP to entice customers to purchase your goods or services. For more information click here:

The character of a new hire is more important than his or her abilities:

Characters can’t be built, skills can be. A person’s character determines how much they get out of their education and training. These employees are more likely than those who only have skills and potential to stick with you in bad times.
