Archer Solutions is not a security company. Archer Solutions is not looking for direct security contracts with venues and therefore is NO threat to your security company. Archer Solutions is a workforce management company that provides a suite of services to assist security companies manage security workforces in compliance with all Commonwealth workplace laws.
Archer Solutions offers a range of services that allow security companies to improve efficiencies and get back to their core business functions including traditional labour hire, specialised payroll / HR services, recruitment and even invoicing.
Why, you may ask, the interest Archer Solutions has with the security industry?
Today the security industry is omnipresent in everyday life and is in a state of rapid growth and dramatic transformation. Large security companies are downsizing their workforces to achieve lower costs and greater flexibility, giving rise to a rapid proliferation of temporary staffing providers, with some agencies providing guards for as little as $18.00 per hour (well and truly below the legal minimum rates of pay).
The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has partnered with The Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) to create and maintain fair workplaces and a level playing field for businesses within the security industry. The partnership has approached this undertaking by signing a three-year Memorandum of Understanding.
Put simply, the FWO has the security industry in its sights and is determined to stamp out misclassification, importantly the underpayment of wages which has been rife throughout the industry for many years.
With the FWO now claiming ‘accessorial liability’ against parent companies and host employers that engage subcontractors in breach of workplace compliance laws, no longer can a security company claim it didn’t realise ‘subbies’ were trading illegally and under paying guards.
With pressing industry reform, security companies are in desperate need of professional assistance with their non-core business functions, especially something as complex as workforce management… a field Archer Solutions specialise in!
