We are headed towards a crucial labor shortage in the building trades industry. In fact, it is already apparent in many parts of the country—but there are things that can be done to combat it, and it starts with a shift in your mindset on how to tackle recruiting.
Forward-thinkers Tim Herbert, UA Lead Organizer, Washington State Pipe Trades and Josh Windy, UA Organizer, Michigan Pipe Trades, will be joining us in Huntington Beach, CA at this year’s MSCA18 educational conference to share the steps they’ve taken to address this issue in their area in a creative and successful way. This talk will include new perspectives on ways to find and contact potential recruits as well as the importance of creating and fostering long-term, on-going relationships with those considering a career in the HVACR industry. You will learn about a new interactive database they created to help track and maintain contacts; and how local contractors are involved and engaged in the process. This session will provide you with a fresh outlook on recruiting and provide you with the tools you need to ensure you are attracting the best talent to fulfill your manpower needs.
