What Are Contract Workers? Why Do You Need Them?

If you visit a rail or civil construction or maintenance project site you are mostly likely to encounter a whole range of different labour workers. This includes provisional placement workers, permanent placement workers and contract workers. All of these workers are crucial to delivering successful projects in the rail or civil construction or maintenance industries. But what exactly is a contract worker? Do you need them for your project? How can you find contract workers? The Specialised Labour Hire team will be answering these questions and more in this new SLH article.

What Are Contract Workers?

Contrary to employees who work directly for your business, contract workers are independent workers that own and operate their own business, opting to sell their services to other businesses. There are a number of names for contract workers that you may be familiar with, such as “independent contractors”, “sub-contractors” or “subbies”.

Why You Need Contract Workers

There are a number of reasons why you should opt to hire contract workers for your rail or civil construction or maintenance project. Here are just a few of the many reasons:

  • Quickly fill temporary labour shortages in your rail or civil construction or maintenance project
  • Fill skilled positions that are lacking within your workforce or project
  • Reduce your overall labour and day-to-day operation costs
  • Achieve greater flexibility for your workforce
  • Hire temporary workers for short term jobs and projects

Ultimately, hiring contract workers is a necessity for modern rail or civil construction or maintenance projects to maintain flexibility, profitability and the timely completion of your projects.
