Where Have All the Good Technicians Gone?

Posted on May 25, 2016

On May 25, 2016 Charles Brand from HireBetterNow and Chris Compton from HVACRedu.net spoke at the Eastern Energy Expo at Foxwoods Resort and Casino.  The Program was described as follows:

It is well documented that there is a national shortage of technicians in the HVAC industry and other major trades. Yet, time after time, companies in our industry continue to actively look for experienced technicians. The truth is, that any good technician with experience is already working for another company. The ones, who are not working, are generally not worth hiring. If they couldn’t make it with one of your competitors, what makes you think they can make a positive contribution to your company?  There is a logical step by step solution to the manpower shortage in our industry. The first step is to stop trying to hire experienced technicians. They just aren’t out there. Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The only logical answer to the technician shortage is to attract new people into the industry, people who have the aptitude and attitude necessary to be successful and train them to do the job.  In this program, we will walk you through our step by step approach and show you how to find, hire and train as many quality HVAC technicians as you need.
