When you find yourself in need of labour, you can send out a posting looking for the specific skill needed. You send this to either the entire network or to one, a few or all trusted partners, to see if they can help.
If you have idle/available labour capacity, you can offer that to other users on the network that are looking to find additional help by contracting that labour capacity to them.
When work exceeds labour capacity, firms are often tempted to make do, sending fewer trades, the wrong trades or pulling trades from sites to meet conflicting demands. This all costs, especially when it comes to efficiencies and the last 5% of a job.
If it is possible to hire during peaks, it may not be the best choice of personnel. Also, when sites are not ready or there is a downturn it may add to overheads or force layoffs, which can be hard on crew.
Finding and cultivating trusted partner networks allows flexibility and cost management by reaching out confidently when additional capacity is needed.
Alternatively, by creating a trusted partner network, when business is slower, surplus capacity can be contracted to a trusted relationship, reducing overheads and ensure that good trades are profitably retained.
