Construction Project Management
Does your team have the right experience to tackle your new construction project?
According to recent statistics, one of the most commonly outsourced services is construction, with 53% of respondentsindicating that they are outsourcing this service. The way of the future is in outsourcing your project work to providers specifically tailored for your construction solutions.
To obtain the most experienced team in the field, consider placing contractors alongside your employees to get the most reliable results that are not only on time, but also within budget too.
Here are 6 reasons why you should hire technical staffing contractors to work on your construction project.
For any construction project, you need a team of people who are well-trained in highly technical fields, and an outsourced technical staff can possess the necessary knowledge your project needs. With an in-depth knowledge of important technical aspects, your outsourced staff becomes an essential part of business and can fill the gaps your construction staff may have.
Unless you have a dedicated team devoted to specific construction projects, the likelihood of your staff having an extended amount of experience on similar projects is minimal. However, outsourcing this work to experienced contractors who do this work daily means that they already know the details involved to be able to complete the job properly, inside and out.
If your staff is already involved with a number of company-wide projects, then they will have less time to dedicate to a specific construction project. They may also be focusing on other more pressing tasks at hand. With contractors, you know that 100% of the time that they are billed is going to working on the construction project that you have stipulated.
Having contractors working alongside your team members allows for greater knowledge transfer. Because they have learned various things from other companies’ projects, they are able to bring this knowledge to your project and to your team. This facilitates a greater learning process for your team members, all without getting involved in expensive external training courses.
Rather than bringing in new staff from the outside and then training them (a costly process), hiring a contractor means that they are prepared and ready to go with your projects. Teaching someone about company values is a far less costly process than teaching them the skills needed to be competent in a workplace position.
Don’t have full time employee hours to dedicate to a new position? Why waste money trying to find extra jobs to do for a salaried employee when you can get in a contractor at half, or even a quarter of the hours that a full-time employee would cost.
