Workforce Planning


A managed workforce solution involves far more than
just projecting labour requirements for the life of a
project or across a set time frame. It is a process that needs to be strategic and focused on ensuring you
have full control over the cost of labour. That is, the
real cost of labour, which is much more than the
hourly rate of each employee.

At Blue Tongue we partner with our clients and develop a strategic approach that builds the capability and capacity of the workforce, improves workplace culture, increases productivity, increases retention rates and provides training for the future whilst maintaining control over the cost of labour.

We offer an extensive range of options from Up-skilling local Australians through to accessing the best international talent via our On-Hire Labour Agreement negotiated with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. At Blue Tongue, we are not consultants that charge a large fee and walk away. We provide assets, unique IP and we share in the risk with our partners. By providing our clients with a superior managed workforce solution we achieve proven results in improving productivity and controlling labour cost.

Our philosophy is centred on the employment lifecycle and creating career paths for employees, not just jobs for today. By creating a career path with mid and long term incentives and goals for our employees we establish an improved culture within the workplace. This drives productivity and introduces a fresh and motivated approach into the workplace in which our employees are placed.
