January 2023 Snapshot Report: Working Remotely: In recent years, the adoption of remote work has become increasingly popular across various industries, including the home services sector. However, the home services industry faces unique challenges when it comes to working remotely, such as the need for hands-on work and in-person customer interaction. To understand how contractors are navigating these challenges, we conducted a Snapshot Survey of contracting business owners across the country in January 2023. In this report, we present the findings of our survey and offer insights into the ways in which remote work is transforming the home services industry.
Where to Find Talent for the Busy Season: The busy spring and summer seasons are typically a vital time to hire for most contractors, who all of a sudden have more leads than their current staff can handle. But if you wait until the busy season to start hiring, it’s already too late. And if you look for new hires where you’ve always looked – and where your competitors are looking – you’re setting yourself up for failure. So what can you do? In this webinar, you’ll learn about the crucial hiring strategies that can push your business forward this busy season – and all year long. We’ll cover how to identify the attitudes, aptitudes and, in some cases, even the skills you need in order to effectively build your team. You’ll walk away with an understanding of how to hire outside the industry and fast-track the learning of hard and soft skills, so that industry newcomers can start providing elevated consumer experiences and generating sales and profits immediately.
