Sales are starting to Boom! The construction / remodeling industry is on the upswing. The consumer demand is growing every day. Will the labor shortage continue to be a problem? The answer is YES. Unfortunately, as technology has increased and the internet has taken over recruitment efforts. We are left wondering “How do we find the work force we need?” The days of using a newspaper “help wanted ad” is done. The postings on “Craigslist” pull less than desirable responses. The recruitment sites on-line focus on individual job applicants and not crews. The job postings very rarely get viewed by the people we are trying to reach. How many applications do we need to get from unskilled, inexperienced individual workers to realize these efforts don’t work? This usually is discovered when we need the crews the most.
In some cases, we find ourselves taking a chance on someone that we don’t know and doesn’t have a reputation that can be verified. This leaves our reputation at risk. Let’s face it, if the crew does a bad job we are left picking up the pieces and paying the price with bad on-line reviews or BBB complaints that stay with us forever. The cost is almost unmeasurable and the sub-contractor doesn’t have any consequences other than you not giving them any other work. The “SUB-SOURCE Network” puts an end to this. This is a network that is a private closed network that is viewable only to it’s members.
The membership is comprised of sub-contractors that have created a profile so that you can verify their credibility and labor skills. They will have the ability to post work samples, recommendations and reviews from other companies, generals and builders. The network is private and the reviews can only be viewed by other members. Their profile will provide you with important information such as equipment, insurance, crew size and work schedule. Your job postings will be directed to your desired audience and you or your HR department can take control by viewing, researching and only reaching out to the Subs that meet your project requirements. Make sure that your keeping the production schedule on track and the cash flowing with the SUB-SOURCE NETWORK – TAKE CONTROL AND FIND THE RIGHT SUBS
CONTROL YOUR WORK SCHEDULE
Controlling your work schedule can be complicated and frustrating. However, your production schedule effects your cash flow and customer satisfaction. The two challenges you have on a continual cycle are 1. jobs not being completed in the time frame desired due to weather or material delays 2. existing crews not being available due to vacation, illness, or other work being done. Both of these challenges are always confronting us. We take actions by trying to add crews or we contact customers to apologize for the delay. Neither of these actions are usually good for us. We have a tendency to add unknown crews that don’t meet our expectations or we have an upset customer because in both cases we are not fulfilling the promises given by our sales department.
The SUB-SOURCE NETWORK will provide you a directory of qualified and experienced crews to fill your labor needs. This allows you to contact the desired members that you wish to hire according to their profile, skill set, and calendar availability. Great Subs even have schedule gaps. These are great opportunities to build a lasting work relationship now and in the future. We also know that sometimes it is difficult to recruit a sub that you can’t guarantee a consistent flow of work to or that you would use temporarily.
Sub-Source.com creates a network that all parties can help one-another. Subs don’t like down time and many times they have schedule gaps due to job start delays with their main general. They feel they can’t ask for work from another general because it would be temporary so they sit and get frustrated. This networking can help both parties. Some Subs would like to grow by expanding their crews but are scared there isn’t enough work. Your future demand can help them grow at the same time filling your demand. LET THE SALES DEPARTMENT SELL!
GETTING PAID – KNOWING YOUR SUB
One of the most important aspects of your business is assuring that you get paid and get paid the full balance. Unfortunately, the sub-contractor and the crew your using might be interfering with this. Either the crew isn’t getting the project completely finished or their work is not up to the customers expectations. This leads to non payment or discounts for the sub-contractors deficiencies. This reduces your bottom line – PROFIT. The “SUB-SOURCE NETWORK” allows you to research the subs you are using and holds them accountable for their work and work habits. The review system allows the general to post work experiences that holds them accountable for their actions. They not only need to maintain their reputation but this makes them desire that reputation that provides them more work and more income. This means awarding the project to the sub that meet your requirements and understands importance of making sure your customer is happy and satisfied.
THE WRONG SUB MEANS LOST REVENUE
BUILDING A REPUTATION THAT SUBS WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH
This might not seem that important but the fact is that with the labor shortage you need them more than they need you. The right sub or crew can be instrumental in your companies continued success and future growth. You need them to fulfill what your sales department has promised. These fulfillments lead to great reviews that you benefit from forever. Great crews want to know they are going to get paid, get paid in a timely manner, and get paid what they are worth.
They don’t want to have deductions applied to their invoices for work they have done and you have approved. Unfortunately, many companies, generals, and builders have taken advantage of subs over the years. The sub-contractor wants to know who they are working with. They want to be proud of who they do business with. They want to be respected for their abilities. They want to know that they are going to get paid and paid in a timely manner.
The “SUB-SOURCE NETWORK” allows you to build a profile that all “sub” members will be able to see. There will be a direct contact link so they can seek you out. This is a private network of only members so your information and messages can be directed to the sub instead of the general public. You will be able to search for subs, post available jobs, and create a flow of interested subs. These are subs that want to work with you because of your great reputation. Remember you are now competing with your competitors for labor crews not just sales.
SUBS THAT WANT TO WORK WITH YOU
Companies, Generals, and Builders need labor services provided that might not be demanded of them all the time. You need subs that have unique skills that you might only need filled every now and then. The “SUB-SOURCE NETWORK” helps provide and maintain a long lasting relationship with the sub. You are able to find the right sub for the job and the sub appreciates the work for what it is. You also don’t want all your eggs in one basket, meaning you need to have options, Labor Options! What happens if you have a crew leave, get hurt, or your not happy with their performance. These relationships are started and created through networking. That sub might seek you out for more work because of the experience you provided. The sub might select you as their main general. The relationship you build today is like planting a seed in a garden. That garden, if nurtured, will provide for you in the future.
GROW A GARDEN OF SUBS TO HARVEST WHEN NEEDED

However, most skilled tradesman and crews are difficult to duplicate or add. The “SUB-SOURCE NETWORK” can provide a directory of quality subs to fulfill those labor demands.
