Jonathan Gaspard is the president of Restoration Roofing based in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas metro. Restoration Roofing is rapidly growing, and this means that finding labor quickly and easily is crucial. That’s why he has been using Labor Central.
Labor Central is one of the leading online marketplaces for connecting contractors and crews. The service helped Jonathan find a local, Northeastern crew for one of his jobs. This helped him save on costs, as he didn’t have to pay for housing or transportation. Connecting with this crew ended up being a match made in heaven. “The [crew] in the Northeast was fantastic,” says Jonathan. “We actually have brought them in as a longer-term sub.” The crew now travels with them, doing a variety of different projects.
Labor Central is most convenient if you’re in an area with a substantial labor pool. In a quality market for construction work, you can’t go wrong by using their marketplace.
One of Jonathan’s favorite aspects of Labor Central is that you can search for crews using a filter specifying if they are insured or have worker’s comp. “[We need] the ability to filter the crews on their insurance basis,” Jonathan explains. “We do a lot of Defense Department work, and so that's absolutely required. It's not a luxury.” The convenience of not needing to have multiple conversations with different crews, only to discover they are uninsured, is a huge benefit for Jonathan.
If your company is struggling to find an efficient way to recruit labor, look no further than Labor Central. It has all the tools you need to find good-quality labor, and it will you save you time and money in the long run.
