The Top Benefits To Attract The Best Skilled Trades Workers In 2022

Skilled tradesmen, and women, deserve great benefits. Construction hiring managers and HR teams know that they have to be competitive in the current candidate-friendly job market. 

But how important are additional benefits to your workforce? We went to the HR professionals at BetterUp for some answers. Here’s what they had to say in a recent article:  

According to the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) employee benefits survey, 92% of employees consider benefits an important contributor to their overall job satisfaction.  And a third consider their current benefits to be the main reason they plan to search for a new opportunity in the next year (2022).

The survey found that benefits packages that include more than financial compensation are more likely to provide companies with a competitive edge.

This post will discuss the most important skilled trades benefits and how you can go above and beyond the bare minimum without breaking the bank. 

So what are the bare minimum benefits required by law?

Every state requires these benefits at a minimum:

  • Unemployment insurance
  • Social Security and Medicare
  • FICA payroll taxes
  • Workers’ Compensation Insurance
  • Note: Certain states require some additional benefits    

At STP, we also feel that companies owe some intrinsic benefits to their workforce, like employee trust and a safe work environment.

But what are some additional, tangible benefits that companies can offer their skilled trades workers, over-and-above the bare minimum? 

We’re built on blue-collar respect at STP. We feel that skilled tradesmen and women are owed some additional and richly-deserved benefits. To name a few:

  • Paid Vacation
  • Paid Sick Days (PTO)
  • Holiday Pay 
  • Medical And Dental Insurance
