Understanding Contractual Manpower

Contractual manpower refers to the hiring of temporary or contract employees to fulfil specific roles or tasks within an organization. They are not permanent employees but are engaged on a fixed-term basis or for a specific project.

  • Contractual manpower is often used when an organization requires additional staff for a limited duration, to cover for permanent employees on leave, or to meet peak workloads. (you can read more on the importance of Contractual Hiring here)

Facility management is a part of the business function that involves the management of an organization’s physical assets, infrastructure, and the environment which in turn improves the quality of life of people and the productivity of the core business.

  • It includes a wide range of services and responsibilities related to buildings, equipment, and support services.
