Staffing is acknowledged worldwide as the industry’s burning
issue as companies are not able to staff sufficiently to meet project
requirements. The staffing crisis also creates large risks
in bidding new projects. Today, staffing is the first subject
addressed by E&C Industry associations, government departments
and major corporations. Some of the staffing issues we address
- Gaining Access of E&C firms to global candidate
pools through Visilent’s large E&C database and

channels including hiring managers, internal recruiters, external

to address your immediate E&C staffing needs today,
and create stability in staffing for the future.
Just as staffing is a key challenge for the Engineering and Construction
Industry, similar is the case for Owners and Operators, particularly
in the Energy, Transportation, Telecommunications, Health and Services,
and Resort and Casino segments. During the 80’s and 90’s
there was very limited construction activities in many of these markets, causing
a decline in the need for engineer and construction staffing for
owner/operator companies. Increased design and construction combined
with the need for engineers to operate the new facilities
in each of these markets results in a significant increase in
the need for direct and/or contract hires. This need is further
inflated by the large numbers of engineers for these owner/operator
company’s that are retiring.
Visilent helps Owners and Operators with significant engineer staffing
needs by utilizing similar services. With Visilent owner/operators:
- Gain access to the Industry's most robust talent database of
- Can utilize Visilent’s innovative professional services
teams for creative ways to find local or international talent through

recruiters and candidates on a robust technology platform.
- Increase the overall efficiencies of the recruiting process by
