We May Not Yet Be Able to Deliver the Most Contract Trades, but

We Will Always Deliver Employees Who Rank Among the Best Overall Crafts on Your Job Site.

Contract Trade Group

Our construction-experience recruiters focus on attracting and retaining employees who are consistently Safe, Reliable, Productive, And Take Pride in Their Work.

The construction staffing industry is packed with numerous competitors, all vying for the same craft professional who enjoys the flexibility of contract work.  Through more than 100 years of combined experience – working for some of those competitors – our management team learned that the key to building a strong brand isn’t about having a large sales team or processing a high volume of orders.

Instead, Kodiak has taken a different approach in the construction staffing arena.  Our brand will thrive based primarily on the number of highly skilled recruiters we employ and rewarding them – not on how many hires they make – but on the quality of individuals they onboard and retain from assignment to assignment.

The Industry’s Best Recruiters. Hands Down.

We are equipped with a team of recruiters who have specialized in the field of construction. They understand the importance of supporting each craft colleague assigned to them in the best possible way. The number of employees assigned to our recruiters has been limited so they can take the time to learn about those individuals, even on a personal level. They get to know their families, hobbies, and work preferences. By communicating with them on a project-by-project basis, they learn about the types of projects they enjoy working on. Whether it’s grueling outage work in the power sector or long-term travel work on LNG terminals, our recruiters ensure that the work assigned to each craft is fulfilling.

Each craft has a designated “go-to” recruiter who is available around the clock. This recruiter can quickly resolve any issues or answer any queries related to payroll, new site orientation, site safety concerns, project scheduling, housing, travel, and more.

The Recruitment-Focused Result:  We earn the loyalty of our craft professional employees. Our YOY retention percentage continues to grow well beyond what we know of other staffing firms.

The Benefit to Our Commercial and Industrial Contractors:  Our crafts will rank among the best overall workers on the job site as compared to other contract workers and our contractor’s full-time employees. We Guarantee It.

We can dot the “i” on that by sharing with you that our pipe weld test pass rate, as just an example,  typically exceeds 80%.

Our recruitment and service personnel stand ready to level your work-to-worker ratio at all points in the project lifecycle. To learn more, call Jake Stover, our Contract Trade Sales Manager, at 317.349.3531
