As The Skill Xchange is launched to the industry, we thought it was a good time to share more insight into who The Skill Xchange is, and why we’re here for you.
Who is The Skill Xchange?
The Skill Xchange is an Australian business resourcing network catered for industry specific demands.
We’re a business-to-business networking platform made by experienced building business owners, for business owners. Here at The Skill Xchange, we’re proud to be the first platform to seamlessly connect businesses to resources and opportunities in an industry-focused environment.
We’ve had an overwhelming response from businesses in carpentry, concreting, plumbing and more so far, and are here to help others reap the same rewards.
The importance of connectivity
One of the core goals for the platform was to meet the skill shortage with existing businesses through better connectivity. Everyone has experienced a council hold up, scheduling issue or one of the ever-growing list of external factors that can lead to unplanned downtime. On the other side of this, we also have governments often looking to meet a perceived skills shortage with an influx of apprentices or an imported workforce.
The results of overestimating that need can be devastating for existing businesses, leading to the driving down of wages, unemployment or work shortages and even a lack of personal funding from banking lenders seeing self employed construction workers as unstable income earners, which was a big issue in the ‘90s.
