5 Ways Hiring a Subcontractor for Your Labor Needs Empowers you to Achieve More

Subcontracting is a great way to build and grow your business. Partnering with an AV labor services provider can be a power move, expanding your ability to excel at serving your customers. Here are 5 ways you can achieve more by partnering with an AV labor services provider.

Scaling your workforce to fit your business’s needs through a trusted subcontractor is a powerful advantage. You can staff up for the project you have without worrying about keeping the team busy once the project is complete. You can tackle more business without acquiring additional, permanent employees, saving you time and money.

Like many businesses, you don’t always have the capacity to hire or train full-time employees for specialized skills required for some jobs. Subcontracting can bring additional skills to your team when you need them. From lead technicians to technical AV service personnel, subcontracting can bolster your team with the skills needed for the job.

Who doesn’t want to be more efficient? Let your team focus on mission-critical projects and subcontract day-to-day work or projects, allowing your full-time employees to focus without getting pulled in a multitude of directions. More focus on the right projects helps you not only be more efficient but more effective as well. Hiring a contractor can also be faster than hiring and training a new employee so you can get right to work.

Hiring a full-time employee is neither quick nor easy. When you hire a subcontractor, there is simply less paperwork. Subcontracting means you won’t have to file workers comp, payroll taxes, or unemployment insurance for your new resource(s). With the right subcontractor, you won’t need to spend time on training either.

When you take into consideration all of the costs of hiring a full-time employee, subcontracting can be a cost saver. Consider the following expenses you are paying in addition to salary:

• Benefits (Insurance, 401K, vacation, holiday, sick -leave)
• Workers compensation
• Vehicles and tools
• Full utilization of the employee
• Recruiting costs

These are all expenses you do not incur when subcontracting labor.

As an AV integrator, you can achieve more and grow your business with the right AV labor provider who can support you when a job is larger than you can staff; seasonality occurs; or a different skill-set is needed.
