What A Construction Worker On Your Payroll Really Costs


Are You Thinking About Adding Workers To Your Payroll?

In Some Cases - You may be better off outsourcing to a temporary labor service especially when you consider the cost of a bad hiring decision.

Our Construction Clients - Who have used temporary labor services have been satisfied and from our experience providing back office support for our contractor clients.

In Addition To The Costs - Of advertising, reading lots of good fiction (resume's), interviewing candidates because just like a seeing a brand new car on the showroom floor; job-seekers are the best they will ever be during the interview. After that it is all downhill and the only question is how far and how fast.

We Have Interviewed - Hundreds of construction workers for our past construction businesses that we owned and operated and found most of said they could do the job. Some could, some couldn't and it was always a surprise.

Human Resources - Is an area I will not even discuss here. For the smaller firms with annual sales volumes under $5,000,000.00 I strongly suggest you work with an employment attorney to develop your employment agreements. 

Fully Burdened Construction Worker Cost - Simply means what it will cost you to hire someone including the company portion of the payroll taxes and all those little costs that only an accountant like me would think about. The example below shows a full-time construction worker at $25.00 an hour working 40 hours a week. Notice this poor soul does has very fee benefits and they still cost the company $44.81 per hour!
