The ‘Challenge’ With Managing Labour

The ‘Challenge’ With Managing Labour

Organising labor effectively and across multiple sites is one of the greatest challenges faced by construction business owners in the building industry. It chews up profit and hours very quickly when not managed effectively.

When you’re responsible for 30+ employees, simple tasks can turn into a nightmare. It’s your job to make sure that each site has enough labour to complete a job. Get it wrong and it can be a costly mistake that cuts into your margins – and leaves you with a headache!

It’s not uncommon for business owners to store data and problems in their head. At best you might use a combination of spreadsheets, white boards and scribbled notes in order to schedule labour. Notifying each employee job details by text, cuts into valuable time and energy that could be better used elsewhere. Working in this way is mundane, and can create a lot of stress and uncertainty.

Even when you think you’re organised things rarely go to plan on a construction site. Things constantly change due to weather, employees calling in sick, or mistakes by other contractors. Throw in a last minute cancellation and all of your hard work goes out the window. All you want to do after a long and challenging day is to relax and unwind with your family.
