Employed vs. sub contract labour
You might not know it, but the people you let into your house to carry out your new window or door installation might not actually be employed by the home improvement company you’ve chosen to conduct the work! Here’s a quick guide to employed vs. sub contract labour and what this means for your home improvement.
Employed vs. sub contract labour: what you need to know
At Majestic, we employ every one of our staff members directly. This isn’t the norm across the home improvement industry though. In order to cut down on costs, many home improvement companies across the country don’t actually employ their own staff. Instead, they hire out local builders, plumbers and window fitters to carry out installations on their behalf: this is called ‘sub contract labour’.
Why we employ all of our staff
Sub contract labour is bad for a number of reasons. Here at Majestic, we employ ALL of our own staff. Here’s a few of the reasons why:
Better quality control
Companies that employ sub-contractors can never be sure of the standard of their finished installations. By employing each and every one of our craftsmen, we can ensure you installation is of the highest quality possible. Effectively, employing all of our own staff means that we can have better control over the quality of our installations.
Not using sub-contract labour also speeds up the installation process. Employing our own workforce means that there are less companies involved in the installation process, and not as many ‘fingers in the pies’ so to speak. This means that we can eliminate irritating bureaucratic delays and install your window or door faster than ever.
Exceptional customer service
As well as having better control over the finished quality of our installations, employing our own staff also means that we have more control over the standard of customer service that we provide. Sub contract labour can often fail to live up the the demands of high customer service. Here at Majestic, we have strict customer service expectations that we expect all of our staff to deliver. This means that you can ensure Majestic installers will be trustworthy, polite and prompt. We’re committed to providing exceptional customer service.
