Dulsco plans 25pc increase in recruitment
Dubai, October 14, 2009
Dulsco HR Solutions (Dulsco), a top human resource outsourcing company, plans to increase its blue collar manpower pool by at least 25 per cent.
Dulsco recently brought in more than 1,000 recruits from Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar and India in response to growing demand from numerous companies to outsource their manpower needs in order to gain greater operational flexibility while reducing liabilities.
Dulsco's outsourced manpower covers various categories such as general helpers and cleaners, semi-skilled manpower and skilled manpower.
The latter category includes plumbers, masons, electricians, carpenters, fabricators, drivers and many more. The company also outsources forklift operators, office assistants, and security guards, among others.
“The onslaught of the global economic crisis has seen a lot of companies shift to manpower outsourcing,” said Valerian D’Souza, GM, manpower services, Dulsco.
“The outsourcing model has evolved from being mainly a cost-saving strategy to being a powerful tool for maximizing operational efficiency,” he added.
“The practice is particularly gaining popularity in active Arab economies. This recent expansion of manpower will enable us to meet the growing demand for outsourced workers of this category throughout the region.”
Workforce outsourcing offers numerous organisational benefits, such as reducing planning costs covering seasonality; easing manpower recruiting and planning; having a reliable expert to carry out manpower formalities; and increasing productivity due to a lower head count.
Outsourcing allows companies to focus on core business activities, to reduce time, effort and financial costs, and to address new hiring on temporary jobs.
Dulsco’s comprehensive manpower services include candidate selection and sponsorship/visa, medical insurance, payroll and attendance, accommodation, transportation and other benefits as per UAE labour law, according to the statement.
The manpower specialists provide continual training to its standby workforce in areas such as skills, languages, hygiene, health and safety, the statement said.
Dulsco also provides its employees with accommodation facilities, sports spaces, recreational events and medical services to ensure their physical and psychological fitness. – TradeArabia News Service
