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.
Having necessary resources and expertise on-call is difficult when your workload continually fluctuates. Employing full time staff in-house is not only expensive but it doesn’t make sense with the project based nature of the industry.
THE COMPLETE SOLUTION
The secret to managing the complexity of a mining and construction business is simplicity and we can offer a broad range of services under one roof.
We employ over 500 mining and construction workers under our outsourced employment model with mobilisation and facilitation requirements.
