CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tradesmen International, a national construction staffing firm, will host a webinar with Associated Builders and Contractors on June 23, 2020 titled: Proven Workforce Strategies to Protect Contractors During Ramp Up. The topic was inspired by the labor strategies adopted by construction contractors during the 2009 Great Recession that are now being successfully implemented as COVID-19 restrictions loosen. These strategies were shown to reduce labor costs in ways that boosted profit margins for contractors.
As the previous recession demonstrated, construction staffing in times of uncertainty can be challenging and costly. Tradesmen is applying the lessons learned from the Great Recession on how to protect profit margins by training contractors nationwide how to adopt a CORE+Flex™ staffing strategy. This staffing method enables them to control expenses while concurrently sustaining optimal workforce productivity and reducing labor related costs and risk exposure. This is accomplished by running a leaner full-time workforce, comprised only of top craft professionals, and supplementing that core craft workforce with contract skilled craftsmen on an ‘only as needed’ basis.
“Contractors who adopt and stick with CORE+Flex regularly reduce labor costs between 11 and 24%,” said Mike Christiansen, COO at Tradesmen International. “The CORE+Flex approach creates a core staff level, so contractors can avoid costly spikes and dips as workloads fluctuate. This translates into saving thousands of dollars over the long term.”
A panel of ABC contractor members will discuss their experiences with this tried and true staffing strategy and how it can be used to protect businesses and position them for short- and long-term profit margin gain.
All webinar attendees are eligible to receive a custom Labor Productivity Analysis that, using client data, enables contractors to implement the CORE+Flex staffing strategy.
