State of the Industries: Employers often want to ensure that new employees have the physical capability to perform their job duties. Because of the labor-intensive nature of these positions, employers then have financial costs associated with injured workers, insurance, and worker’s compensation. Between the costs of testing potential employees’ physical ability, protection against employee injury, and training employees in important safety procedures, the total cost of hiring can add up. Employers also rarely have several weeks to search for new workers, due to tight building or mining schedules. This can prove to be counterproductive or even hazardous, especially if employers hire workers without the desired skills out of desperation. Who do you think makes the most mistakes on the job? That’s right – new hires. Employee turnover affects project deadlines, project quality, and the often overlooked indirect expenses of negligence and inexperience. The high turnover rate, cost of hiring, and cost of hiring the wrong people are three reasons it is essential to retain the best people in construction, manufacturing, and mining.
