Looking for staff? FAQ’s

How does your pricing work?
At People 2U, our pricing is transparent and straightforward. We pay our workers according to awards, EBA’s (Enterprise Bargaining Agreements) and industry agreements, and then we bill out a charge rate on top of that. This ensures that you receive a competitive and fair rate for the services provided by our quality employees.

What is your attitude or policy for workplace safety?
Safety is our utmost priority at People 2U, and we take it extremely seriously. As part of our client onboarding process, one of our friendly operations team members will visit your site to inspect working conditions and ensure they meet safety standards. Before our employees are placed on your site, they will receive a comprehensive briefing about the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required for their job. On day one, they will arrive fully equipped with the correct PPE, ready to work. While People 2U typically provides the necessary PPE, some agreements may require clients to provide it as part of the arrangement.

Is there a minimum number of staff I need to hire?
There is no minimum number of staff required to hire from People 2U. We offer flexibility in our services and are here to provide people for various roles, whether you need one employee or an entire team. We provide people for here… there… anywhere!

Is there a minimum amount of time I need to use People 2U employees for?
Yes, we do have a minimum hiring duration of 4 to 8 hours, depending on the specific job requirements and the relevant award or industry agreement. This ensures that our employees have adequate time to contribute effectively to your business operations while maintaining efficiency and productivity.

Do the employees on site work for my business or do they work as employees for People 2U while on our site?
As a leading labour hire and recruitment service provider, People 2U employs, onboards, and takes responsibility for our workers. When you use our services, we are the employer, and our employees are placed at your site, and your business then become what is known as the host employer. However, while on your site they remain employees of People 2U throughout their time at your business. This means we handle all their HR requirements (pay, leave, communications etc), allowing you to focus on what you do best. Should your business wish to undertake a permanent placement with one of our employees, the HR responsibilities will transition to your business, along with a permanent placement fee which is negotiated.

How do we ensure People 2U employees are correctly ticketed and qualified?
At People 2U, we pride ourselves on finding the right fit for every role. Our dedicated team ensures that the workers we provide match the required qualifications and hold valid licenses for the job at hand. We take care of all relevant background checks and screening processes, ensuring you receive qualified and skilled professionals who can seamlessly integrate into your workforce.

Depending on the type of work and any specific requirements outlined in the Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) or industry agreements, we supply workers with shirts or vests. The EBA generally specifies what PPE an employer is obligated to provide, and we ensure compliance by providing the necessary equipment to our employees.

What level of ongoing support is required once an employee is hosted by us?
Once a People 2U worker is hosted on your site, they will be treated as part of your team. Our workers seamlessly integrate into your workforce, adhering to your policies and procedures to maintain consistency. However, all other aspects related to HR management, payroll, leave, and other administrative tasks are handled by People 2U. We are here to provide comprehensive ongoing support throughout the employee’s tenure, ensuring a smooth and productive working relationship for both parties.
