Imagine a typical construction worker. What do you see?
Are you picturing a man in a hard-hat, holding a power tool at a construction site?
You might find it surprising that laborers make up only about a quarter of the construction workforce – the rest is filled up by tradespeople, managers, and back-office administrative staff.
In today’s world, being a subcontractor is not just the work, but all the other tiring parts that make up a business: IT, HR, sales, payroll, just to name a few. To juggle everything, you need a group of employees to support you that is as diverse as the day-to-day problems the world may throw at you.
