Hiring qualified and competent construction executives is a time consuming and expensive task. Here is where a construction staffing agency can help you. These agencies play an integral role in helping construction organizations find the right talents and hire them. They save your valuable time & money.
Construction staffing agencies can significantly increase your chances of attracting the best talent in the industry. Here’s how they can help you:
1. They have an extensive network for locating the best talent
From executives to managers, construction staffing agencies have an extensive network of candidates. They have thousands of resumes of skilled professionals in their database. This gives them the advantage of finding the right talent quickly.
2. They Save your time
The entire hiring process is pretty time consuming. From interviewing the candidate, checking their skills to verifying the references, there are a number of steps that can eat up your valuable time. Construction staffing agencies handle all these time-consuming steps for you. Moreover, they always keep improving their staffing solutions to present A-list candidates to you.
3. They Manage the Administrative work
From writing a good job description to prepare interview questions, a construction staffing agency takes a lot of administrative tasks off your hands. This helps you concentrate on other important organizational tasks.
4. They Reduce the Turnover Cost
A 2016 study conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management found that employers spend about 6-9 months of an employee’s salary to hire and train a replacement. Which means, the cost can be around $45,000. Staffing agencies save you this cost by eliminating the chances of a bad hire. The experienced recruiters have a good idea whether the candidate will be able to match your standards or not.
5. They are Well Aware of the Job Needs
Staffing agencies have experienced recruiters who know about the work culture of the company and understand the needs of the job. If you have any special requirement then inform them about that and they will find the right candidates for you.
Working with a construction staffing agency can alleviate the stress from your shoulders both in terms of time and cost.

Job recovery progressing slowly in most states
Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 at 2:40 pm
Three years ago, the United States lost nearly 8.8 million job positions in what is now called the Great Recession. Today, many states are still trying to recover from this severe economic downturn.
Only four states have returned to their pre-recession employment rates: Alaska, Louisiana, North Dakota, and Texas. The reason for this success is largely attributed to the global energy boom. Additionally, Washington, D.C., has seen an increase employment as well. However, 23 states are not expected to reach these pre-recession levels until 2015 or later.
Areas where the housing market crashed completely (Arizona, Florida, Nevada, and California) are facing an uphill battle in increasing their employment rates. This is in turn affecting the construction industry, in which many payrolls were cut in half. These construction jobs have yet to return to pre-recession levels, but hopefully other industries, such as travel and tourism, can help these states continue to increase jobs.

Construction spending falls by 0.1%
Posted on Friday, March 2nd, 2012 at 6:27 pm
Spending in the United States construction industry fell by 0.1 percent in January 2012. This is the first time that the spending has dropped in more than six months.
The overall spending in January, adjusting for seasonal changes, was recorded at $827 billion. Although, the spending in January had declined, the December spending in the industry rose by 1.4 percent. The drop in federal and nonresidential construction are two reasons why the amount of spending in the first month of 2012 saw a decline.
Even though the spending is down, employment in the construction industry is rising. In January, there was an increase of 21,000 job opportunities. There are slow signs of improvement across the board in the industry, with residential real estate markets on the incline as well.
The construction industry needs able-minded executives to implement successful strategies. Please contact the executive search and management consulting firm of Construction Hunters by calling 214-989-6846 if you are interested in executive recruitment services and their benefits.
