How Valuable Is A Skilled Trades Recruiter?

How Valuable Is A Skilled Trades Recruiter? | Skilled Traded Partners

There has always been a debate over when it makes the most sense to use a recruiter in the world of construction and skilled trades.

So why would construction companies and other employers of skilled tradesmen need a recruiter? Are we in a tight labor market right now? 

What the Experts Say

A recent article from For Construction Pros states, “There are many unfilled jobs in the U.S. today. Home improvement projects and a competitive housing market have driven the increase in demand for skilled workers. Filling these available jobs is the first step, but the deeper answer lies in training and retaining talent once they have been hired, leading to longer standing employment and a true new workforce to replace the workers that have retired. Regardless of what’s on the 2022 horizon, one thing is for sure: things will evolve and change and the ever-resilient construction industry will continue to pave the way to the future.”

That’s an excellent summary of the need for ongoing skills training. And we always advise our partners to engage in long-term employee retention planning. At STP, we understand this competitive market, and we know where to find top-shelf skilled tradesmen and women to help get your projects completed—on time and on budget.
