All of them guarantees to provide the perfect and best labour. However, the main question comes which usually come in mind is, “Which one is telling the truth?” or “which one will suitably deliver their potential?”, “Which some is the best one to choose?” But do you have time for answering these types of questions? Yes, you should. To prevent damage in future invest a little bit of your time in answering these types of important questions which will provide better insight into those agencies.
So here are some questions you may ask yourself or look into, to pick one of the best labour hire agencies from the big pool.
Experience matters. Sometimes startups without any doubt work wonders too... However, if you are not willing to go down that road then do check the amount of experience hiring agency has under its belt.. Very often, experienced service providers would have faced challenging or tough situations and also break-through in their career path which will be of great help to you. Make use of their experience to run your work smoothly.
Satisfied customers are the best way to test the quality of the workforce offered by the hiring companies. You already have a group of professionals in your HR team, ask them to make certain that the number of satisfied customers is good before selecting the labour-hire agencies. Online testimonials are good, however, but direct discussion or interviews are still a good choice. You might get helpful feedbacks which will make the decision easier.
Just like any other company, your work might also see diversifications which require a different kind of skill sets. Always check the company portfolios and skill sets they are offering before negotiating a deal with them. Having a single company with a diversified portfolio is better than having multiple companies having single skill set. It will help you to hire labour of any skill set at any moment of time, without starting the search again and again. Plus managing multiple companies is equally tiring and costly as managing multiple labourers.
What’s their labour pool? Should be the first question for which you need to get an answer while selecting the labour-hire agency. Here the term labour pool is defined as the number of employees they have in every skill set you require. Do they have employees/ labourers as stand-by all the time or not? When you are planning to recruit hiring agency it means you need labourers in bulk. Lack of pool or numbers will not help you, so checking the agency’s strength and weakness should always be your priority.
A lot of the states in Australia has implemented the labour licensing scheme to secure the benefits of both labours as well as host companies. Several other states are in the process of implementing one. So, if you are operating from any of those states ask the labour-hire agencies with whom you partnered with about the valid license and other documents that are related to your work contract. You can achieve better efficiency and productivity when you partner with agencies which have a valid license. Also, you can trust the competency levels of the labourers when you tie-up with best labour agencies.
Business always uses this particular format in their processes and tasks allotment. You can also follow the same footsteps? Make a list of labour-hire agencies in your area. Evaluate them on the basis of the above questions and some which you have in your mind. The company with the maximum number of yeses or positive replies is the winner and you get to have the quality workforce in no time.
