5 compelling reasons to outsource your workforce

Many large-scale manufacturers are considering whether to outsource their industrial maintenance work or hire new staff members. When done right, with the appropriate expertise in place for each job function, many benefits come from hiring contractors on a short- or long-term basis. Here are five compelling reasons to outsource your workforce.

1. Leave the planning and recruitment up to the experts

Save time and hassle by leaving the industrial maintenance labour planning and recruitment to the experts—enabling you to focus on what you do best. An experienced electrical and instrumentation workforce provider knows the ins and outs of the industry, giving them the know-how to select and screen workers with the right skills and experience to deliver exceptional quality service.

2. Get the best specialists for the job

By partnering with a reputable workforce provider, you can be assured that they’ll match you with the most highly skilled, qualified and hard-working electrical and instrumentation specialists for your unique needs. Workers will arrive on site fully trained, briefed and ready to perform their role to the highest standard. A trusted workforce provider will also provide staff training and regularly check in with their workers and your management team to ensure you’re satisfied with their service.

3. Get staff on demand

Whether you’re looking for expert support in peak production times, scheduled maintenance or cover when a staff member resigns unexpectedly, outsourcing can be a great way to get the right people for your job when you need them most. This gives you excellent flexibility and can help you save money by only paying staff during periods when their services are needed—not all year round.

4.Consolidate the safety culture with a third party

By outsourcing your industrial maintenance work, you’re investing in the workforce provider’s culture. They’ll have the values, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours towards making safety a priority. This means you’ll receive a well-established work culture fully aligned with the ultimate vision for safety.

5.Feel assured that all the right safety protocols are already in place

Many factors go into making sure you have a safe operation, including appropriate training for your employees, safety equipment and a job plan. Hiring contractors from a reputable company with extensive experience in your field means all these protocols will already be in place. They’ll also have full public liability insurance, work cover insurance, and manage the potential risk of any incidents relating to their staff. So, you don’t need to worry about unexpected safety breaches happening in your facility.
