Does your organization need a welder, electrician, plumber, janitor, or other skilled worker? Try these skilled labor staffing solutions to find the right person for the job.
Use Social Media to Reach Out to Skilled Laborers
Social media isn’t just a distraction or a tool for connecting with customers. It’s also a great way to recruit potential candidates for jobs.
Consider posting your job openings on your company’s Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, or other social media pages. Then ask your employees and friends to share these posts with their communities. You may be surprised at the return you get!
Incentivize Referrals From Your Current Employees
One of the best sources for talent may be your current employees’ networks. Hardworking employees often know other hardworking people from previous jobs or trade schools, and it’s quite possible that at least a few of them are open to work.
In some cases, you can find a quality candidate by simply asking your employees if they know anyone who could fill an open position. If you want to increase the chances of an employee encouraging their talented friend or family member to apply, you can create a referral bonus program to provide extra incentives.
Hire a Skilled Labor Staffing Agency
If you’re on a tight time frame or want to broaden your talent pool, the most straightforward staffing solution is usually to hire a skilled labor staffing agency. These organizations have access to a wide pool of qualified talent, many of whom are actively seeking work and available to start right away.
Working with a staffing agency means far more than just gaining easy access to qualified candidates. Staffing agencies usually manage the entire sourcing, interviewing, hiring, and training process for temporary employees, including most of the paperwork. Your temp staff will technically be employees of the staffing agency, so the agency will handle payroll and benefits for you.
Partnering with a staffing agency can save your company substantial time and money on hiring. In addition to finding skilled labor in your time frame and budget, your organization will be able to flexibly adjust your temp workforce based on evolving needs. Staffing agencies can help with all of your hiring needs whether you need temp, temp-to-hire, project-based, or permanent staff.
