The roofing industry hasn’t been attracting as many people to the work force as it has in the past. Perhaps it’s because younger people are gearing themselves toward other, less “physical” professions as they enter and pass through college. Perhaps it’s because the career isn’t being marketed as well as it could be. The latter possibility is being addressed, at least, by roofing professionals who are working to draw in new blood to the jobs.
New Ideas Needed to Promote Roofing Industry
“All sectors of the industry” need to fill jobs with hardworking individuals who foster a desire to learn more about roofing and to find their place within this particular work force. Roofers aren’t the only ones who are finding a lack of people moving within the job: the entire construction industry has been experiencing a lack lately, but no less of a need. Therefore, these men and women need to determine a better and more effective way to draw in new workers.
With this in mind, the National Roofing Contractors Association has created and launched a website to help potential hires find the most appropriate roofing jobs for them. This online database allows users to search and identify more specifically which position is best for their skill level, experience, previous work, etc. Not only does this help individuals to seek out jobs within their (perhaps) current work sector, but it also allows the industry at large to advertise the benefits and features of a job in the roofing industry.
Providing people with this resource will hopefully help to boost the numbers of workers in the roofing industry. It isn’t only contractors, either: the Career Center is also geared toward “distributors, manufacturers, consultants and designers.” Take a look at this new database if you’re trying to figure out what kind of work might suit you, but, get in touch with Cox Roofing today if you want to see if our business family is right for you.
