As the price of oil and rig count gradually increase, we see the demand for well qualified and low-risk labor steadily follows in sequence. However, when ramping up personnel to stay in stride with operations it is essential to ensure your company is hiring an experienced, compliant workforce.
One speed bump in this process is that operators are typically restricted to hiring vendors only from their approved vendor list. But what exactly does that process look like?
Years ago, we learned that the majority of the industry is managing vendors through winded spreadsheets or clunky out-of-date software. This led corporations to pay thousands of dollars for a glorified filing cabinet that spit out a letter grade for each vendor. The red flag with these systems is that vendors are being graded on a company scale, but the work is being performed on an individual basis. So, how does a supervisor ensure that each individual of a contract workforce is properly vetted?
With RigUp, the solutions are automated and simple. Contract labor sourced through the RigUp platform ensures a full 100% compliance with operator specifications. RigUp users are empowered to oversee and ensure that each individual approved to work on location has the most up-to-date training and certifications. And never miss a step with our proprietary automated workforce updates. Rest easy knowing that every hire is the right hire.
Certification tracking also provides advantages for hiring managers looking to onboard experienced, certified personnel. For example, a hiring manager on RigUp has the ability to filter the marketplace by specific certifications, such as well control certification, Safeland, SafeGulf or RigPass. The RigUp Contractor Marketplace ranks and promotes only the most certified individuals in your labor search.
At RigUp, we provide the best experience for hiring managers by populating our marketplace with A+ service providers. In this environment, service providers are empowered to get greater visibility through highlighting their qualifications and certifications on the RigUp platform. The individuals who boost their profiles through this medium are the same ones who are getting the calls, interviews and new jobs.
