Archer’s Labour Hire Model

As security companies continue to grow and struggle to meet the ad-hoc manpower demands of their clients, a growing percentage of their workforce is now made up of contingent labour – temps, independent contractors (very risky) and labour hire.

The security industry has changed over recent years – from new business requirements and technologies to compliance with additional regulations. However one thing that hasn’t changed is how crucial it is for a security company to have access to a quality contingent workforce, their operational lynchpin.

Notwithstanding increasing regulatory pressure, the security industry is made up of a significant number of companies that continue to supply labour to other security companies that are in breach of workplace relations laws (with price rather than compliance being their focus).

Archer Solutions focus is on compliance and future growth rather than a quick buck. On the back of this philosophy, Archer Solutions has spent a tremendous amount of time, money and energy to establish a workforce of skilled security specialists, which your security company now has access to.
