About This Resource
Building a successful construction business requires managing your workforce for maximum efficiency. For every project, you need to carefully schedule workers to achieve the right combination of skills. Moreover, once you have work schedules in place, you need to stay on top of working hours and overtime so that labor costs don’t eat into your profit margin. And that’s all before you encounter delays caused by bad weather, late material deliveries and a global pandemic.
When your business faces rising costs, late-paying customers and a declining number of skilled workers, it is essential to budget for each project down to the dollar. Although spreadsheets may have worked for you in the past, you now need a more flexible solution for collecting and managing workforce data to improve your budgeting and see how each job site is performing at any moment in time.
Fully integrated workforce management technology provides tools that can help you create a dynamic schedule for each job site, including full-time, part-time and seasonal work crews. This technology provides a clear perspective of the resources required to complete each project and where you need to deploy workers to ensure safety and productivity year-round.
