Making sure you have the right people with the right skills at the right time for your project site can be an ongoing challenge for construction contractors. It can be particularly tricky with skilled trades, who are often over-booked due to high demand. A contractor facing skilled trades labor shortages has two choices: either gear up for the lengthy task to locate, vet, hire, and onboard needed skilled trades, with all the paperwork, taxes, and other red tape, expenses, and risks associated with it, or simply lease the labor you need.

Why leasing labor makes sense

Leasing skilled trades labor from an established commercial construction staffing company like Power Labor can resolve these problems. Here are several reasons leasing skilled trades labor could make sense for your next project.

Project-specific expertise. Construction projects often require specialized skills that may not be necessary for all ongoing operations. Leasing skilled labor allows companies to bring in experts with specific experience relevant to the current project, ensuring the best job results and staffing efficiency.

Flexibility in workforce scaling. Construction projects can have fluctuating workloads based on project phases, deadlines, or unexpected changes. Staffing companies provide the flexibility to scale the workforce up or down according to project demands, helping companies avoid the costs and complexities of maintaining a constant, in-house workforce.

Cost Efficiency. Leasing specialized labor can be a cost-effective solution for commercial construction companies. They can avoid the long-term costs of hiring and retaining full-time employees, such as salaries, benefits, and training expenses. This is particularly advantageous for projects with a defined timeline.

Reduced administrative burden. Hiring and managing a skilled workforce involves a variety of administrative tasks, from recruitment and onboarding to payroll and benefits administration. By leasing labor, construction companies can offload much of the administrative burden to the staffing agency, allowing them to focus on core project activities.

Access to a ready pool of talent. Staffing agencies maintain a pool of pre-screened and qualified skilled labor. This provides construction companies with quick access to a diverse talent pool, reducing the time and effort spent on recruiting and ensuring that projects can start promptly.
