With fall right around the corner, Millwrights are in high demand. Shutdown season is upon us, and will require to hands capable of high production and working long hours.
These three tips should help any contractor narrow down their search, saving them time and stress.
1. Get a feel for the market beforehand
Contractors in the millwright industry should do their best to pay attention to the labor market in their area. This can be done by visiting your local trade schools, magnet high schools, attending job fairs, sponsoring events relevant to your industry, or setting up a tent at town events. While this is a great way to get to know your local talent, it also provides exposure for your company.
2. Increase you wages in the fall
Millwrights know that fall is peak season for their skill sets. A competitive wage is a great way to attract the most qualified workers, and retain them. If you are paying the highest rate in your market, your competition will have to fight to keep all their best workers from dragging up and signing with you. This is a great way to build rapport among the most skilled workers, as they will know you are a contractor willing to pay what they are worth.
