How to Keep Up with the Changing Labor Market
Despite Amazon being the nation’s second-largest private employer, they have quite high employee turnover rates. This is good news for contractors who are concerned about how the constant stream of new Amazon warehouses will affect the labor market, especially during a time filled with HVACR workforce shortages.
Contractors competing with Amazon for employees have an opportunity to capitalize on their high staff turnover rate and make the case that a career in HVACR is more lucrative, creative, and stimulating. Communicating the things that make your company special is a great way to bring in new recruits. For example, ACCA Member and ACHR News’ Best Contractor To Work For winner, Huft Home Services in Elk Grove, Sacramento, and Yuba City, CA, has its own in-house HVAC trade school. There is no experience necessary, and students are paid to take the 12-week course. Once completed, they can start working at Huft.
Now is the time to think about what makes your company special, and why someone should come to work for you.
