A network of small contractors is low cost, yet a big part of the machine that keeps the business running.
Unlike hiring clients, small contractors and sole proprietors often lack robust internal structures to manage their compliance effectively. Small contractors in your network have less competency around issues like safety best practices, professional standing, ESG considerations, and the policies and procedures necessary to mitigate risks.
As businesses face mounting pressure to demonstrate their commitment to more than just commerce, creating a safe and ethical contractor network is critical to ensure business stabillity and an enabler for business growth.
In our new guide, we explore key insights to help you:
- Nurture relationships with smaller contractors and help them understand the role they play in safe working practices, and how they can incorporate ESG into the business.
- Showcase your dedication to safety and ESG, and guide contractors on a collective journey towards these shared values.
