Hodes offers employee leasing services in the fields of metalwork, assembly and professional work and warehousing and logistics. The workers mostly originate from Latvia and Ukraine, but some are also from Estonia.
ARE THEY QUALIFIED TO DO THE JOB?
All the employees leased by Hodes pass field-specific tests and a personal interview to evaluate their qualifications and aptitude for the job. However, in the unlikely event of an employee being unable to complete their tasks, there are no risks for your company. The unqualified employee will be replaced as soon as possible. Cases of non-qualified employees have been extremely rare in the long operating history of Hodes.
WHAT ABOUT CULTURE SHOCK?
The new employee originates from a different cultural background and presupposes that his/her cultural identity and customs shall be respected. Sometimes, new employees may experience a culture shock. However, our experience shows that when the new employee is treated well and with respect, they have high motivation to succeed in their work and will adapt quickly.
WHAT ABOUT COMMUNICATION BARRIERS?
Employees leased by Hodes mainly originate from Estonia, Latvia or Ukraine, and their languages are Russian and/or English. Based on our experience, we can say that the fear of communication barriers is rather unrealistic, as it is very likely there is someone at the company who is able to speak either of these languages. Our experience shows that having an employee from abroad usually results in a beneficial language practice for local employees as well.
GENERAL FEAR Of people OF othEr nationalities
Your company’s staff may experience a general fear of people of other nationalities joining the company. Our experience shows that 95% of enterprises rate the experience of having leased employees from abroad as positive. The reality is that the employee from abroad is coming to help your company in a busy time, so that you can manage staff according to your needs. Leasing employees is a solution for your company in situations of increased staff needs that also enables your company to offer more stable jobs for local workers.
Hodes ensures that the education and experience levels of foreign employees are compatible to the requirements of specific fields and positions. Our experienced recruiters conduct aptitude tests, interviews and practical skills tests on the potential employees in order to ensure that the selected employees are qualified and ready for working abroad. Hodes will source the employees for your company according to your needs and the qualifications of the employee.
Using leased employees enables your company to grow and develop, to focus on finding new clients and being more competitive in order to cope with situations like an increase in production volume and special orders.
Using leased staff helps your company minimize staff related risks by employing staff according to production needs – you can increase the number of employees conveniently and quickly when production volumes grow, and minimise the number of employees in low production periods.
