Why do Welding contractors use Construction Staffing Companies

Posted by Grus 8/1/2017 12:00:00 AM

In the welding industry, a shortage of skilled hands on your jobs can completely halt productivity. With there being so many niches in the welding world, finding help for the tasks at hand can also be quite time consuming. These situations are ideal for hiring a construction staffing company. 

 

Consider the following advantages: 

 

  • Save time - The fact of the matter is, finding qualified welders for your projects takes a lot of time. On average, a typical U.S. employer takes between 21 - 30 days to onboard a qualified employee, and that is if they show up. Recent recruiting statistics indicate it can take companies as long as 90 days to find qualified personnel for their positions. That is all time that eats into budget in the form of overtime, delayed projects, inability to bid on future projects, and administrative costs to review resumes, conduct interviews, and train new employees. 

 

  • Save money - Any contractor will tell you that a skilled welder can make all the difference on the job site. When you are in a bind, and need additional staff quick, it can be tempting to hire on anyone with a set of tools to keep the job running. However, as we have seen on many occasions, this can be problematic, when unskilled welders create more work due to lack of quality, or slow production. Grus has access to more than 150,000 skilled workers, and can usually get them to your project within a couple of days. Clients we work with are often impressed with the skill levels of our welders, and have been able to finish jobs ahead of schedule. 

 

  • Eliminate risk - In most states, Grus is able to put skilled workers on our payroll, eliminating the risk for contractors to have to pay out things like workman’s comp and unemployment. This is also a boon to welding contractors, as they can easily send skilled welders to their projects for a set duration, and cut them loose as soon as the project has been caught up, or concludes.
