Increasing your pool of qualified crew or what we call “having a deep bench” of talented labor at your fingertips was seen as the #1 industry challenge according to our recent survey. This was followed by understanding crew availability and determining the quality of that available crew. The chart below sheds further light on the labor management challenges companies face in the event industry today.
As costs rise, competition becomes fiercer, and clients continue to expect more, it’s clear that those that service or staff live events have a lot on their plate. Not having a deep enough bench of qualified labor has become more of a concern in recent months as it impacts all three of these items – from costs (and bottom lines) to how competitive you can be, to the success of the event and happiness of your client.
We often hear companies talk about not having enough people, or even the right people in place to scale their business or project as fast as they would like to scale (without busting their budget at least). Continuing to build a strong on-demand workforce of quality crew is essential when you need to ramp up quickly. Also, it’s important that these people can be on-boarded, scheduled, communicated with, tracked and managed quickly and easily, as that can set one company apart from the next.
Through streamlining labor management processes with workflow automation and dynamic technology solutions, you can be confident that you are crewing the right people, at the right costs, in the right places, at the right time.
The contingent workforce is growing rapidly, but unfortunately pulling together all of the labor processes involved from the time you say “Hi, nice to meet you,” to the time you are paying for quality work is extremely manual and fragmented. That is we created LASSO. Through streamlined labor management tools to workflow automation, actionable data and the ability to communicate across multiple platforms and integrations, LASSO has your back.
