You started your Construction Company, Handyman Business, House Builder, Specialty Contractor or another form of contracting because you wanted to be your own boss, make a lot of money and enjoy some personal freedom.
Most construction workers are good decent people who enjoy working with their hands making, building, repairing, remodeling and fixing homes and commercial buildings.
Good construction workers will not tolerate chaos or unfair labor practices. They will try out a lot of contractors until they find a contractor with a system. Preferably with documented processes and procedures.
Good Construction Workers Have These Five Traits In Common:
#1 High Self
#2 Strong Work Ethic
#3 Always Learning
#4 Loyal To Family And Friends
#5 Law Abiding Citizen
Know The Fully Burdened
Cost Of A Construction Worker
Fully Burdened Construction Worker Cost - Simply means what it will cost you to hire someone including the company portion of the payroll taxes.
Considering The Cost Of Construction Worker on your payroll including taxes and overhead will be 1.3 to 2.0 times the hourly salary you are paying them is why labor is your most expensive cost in running a construction company.
#1 Ask them to fill out an application in person and give them a pen with blue ink. You can learn a lot about a person including if they follow directions. Their handwriting, spelling, and grammar speak for itself.
Make certain the application clearly states you have the right to run a background check, and you will ask for a drug test before considering them eligible for hire.
#2 Subscribe to a service that will run a background check including as much detail as possible
#3 Ask them to get a copy of their driving record. This is huge! If there are any DUI, Reckless Driving or other serious offenses perhaps it would be best to pass on them. If they are not respectful or men and women, who carry guns and are licensed to kill, law enforcement officers they will not show you, your other employees or your customers and clients any respect.
Offer Probationary Period 30 days Or More. Most people will get comfortable and show who they are within 30 days.
