Although gaining popularity in the construction industry, temporary labour is a concept that many have questions about. It’s important to ask these questions so you can ensure that temporary labour is the best decision for you as a client or an employee. Today we’ll go over some of our most frequently asked questions. Many of these questions are similar for both clients and employees, so we will explore most of the questions from both perspectives.

How Does Temporary Labour Work?

For Clients

Clients seek out temporary labour or seasonal work through a staffing agency to help reduce costs to their company and maintain a high volume of work. After meeting with an agency to explore the needs and expectations of the client, the staffing agency matches the best employees for the client. The staffing agency then sends the employees to the client’s worksite to aid them with their goals while fulfilling the role of Human Resources for the temporary staff.

Asking these questions gives an idea of what hazards there are to help prepare for the work environment. We’ll be looking at the top four environmental hazards.

Employee turnover is a huge challenge that many businesses and industries face.

During Alberta’s oil boom and the subsequent population swelling in Calgary and Edmonton, Constructive Solutions Group spent almost as much time educating our workforce about their rights and responsibilities as we did getting them placed and hired. Out of respect for all those individuals, our current readers, and those who might call us for work tomorrow, we’d like to share today’s post about how to prepare yourself for employment as part of a temporary labour force.

Focusing on the issues of ‘hireability’ and ‘keepability’ (we know – not really technical terms but relevant all the same), is a point that more temporary labour agencies should acknowledge. As a temporary worker employed by Constructive Solutions Group, you represent our company on every job you go to. Therefore, looking professional and knowledgeable about our processes and your role in it is in everyone’s best interest.
