MINING & CONSTRUCTION

Employment Innovations has a workforce​ management​​ solution​ that is​ perfect​ for​ mining,​ civil​ and​ construction​ industry​ contractors​ with​ between 5​ and​ 100​ staff.​ Why?​ Because​ the​ ups​ and​ downs​ of​ project​ based​ work​ are​ difficult​ to​ manage.​ Workloads fluctuate​ and​ human​ resources​, ​payroll​​ and​ compliance​​ can​ be​ different​ from​ one​ site​ to​ the​ next.
