This week on the Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Tony McGrath, the president and CEO of OndeWork, an on-demand service for workers and employers in the construction industry.
The firm is a “social enterprise”, McGrath said, with an aim to provide a pathway for those who haven’t traditionally had access to the construction industry to get a first step to employment with an on-demand “unskilled’ position.
With OndeWork, McGrath said, employers can get a “trial run” with temporary workers, and added the firm is assisting recently arrived workers from Ukraine who have trade skills but lack Canadian qualifications to get them into the industry.
