Headlines across the web announce the challenge of a labor shortage, while truck service shops across the country say: “Welcome to the party.” While we have more company in the battle to find the right people with the right skills, the challenges remain. But remember: many of the benefits you offer a technician to join your organization will be the perks to keep him or her employed long-term. Remain up to date with the latest tools, practices, and trends to maintain a comfortable shop environment with the tools and knowledge to succeed.
The shop must also be an environment that promotes an ability for technicians to do their job well with a minimal amount of stress. Prospective employees will likely want to know they are entering an environment that empowers them to perform optimally. Have processes and policies in place to maintain a clean and organized work environment that promotes workplace safety.
