Skilled Trade Worker Demand Means Companies are Upping the Ante in Recruitment

Share Article

Demand for skilled labor and plumbing trade workers expected to grow at an increasing rate over the next few years and companies need to offer the best to employees, says Four Seasons Plumbing.

“When someone chooses to train and get a skilled paid job, such as construction, HVAC or plumbing, you can be on the job and earning a living much faster,” says Max Rose, owner of Four Seasons Plumbing.

According to the Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook, the demand for plumbers is growing at a faster-than-average rate, and by 2026 you should expect to see an additional 100,000 jobs in plumbing and HVAC-related fields. There's been a recent trend with skilled labor companies investing in recruitment to spread awareness about their incredible career opportunities that do not require experience to alleviate any potential barriers to entry. One such company is Four Seasons Plumbing, a family-owned plumbing company based in Asheville, NC. As a result of its enticing company benefits, vibrant culture and even relocation assistance, the team has on-boarded several new members this year alone.

“When someone chooses to train and get a skilled paid job, such as construction, HVAC or plumbing, you can be on the job and earning a living much faster,” says Max Rose, owner of Four Seasons Plumbing. “The wages for jobs in skilled trades are higher than average. The average hourly rate for this type of work is upwards of $20 per hour after participating in on-the-job training through an apprenticeship.”

Rose mentions that company culture and work-life balance are also important factors, and many times the final determining factors for candidates. As many Americans struggle to find variety and balance in their work lives, skilled trade could become increasingly viable as a career choice.

“We understand the competition and demand for skilled employees, which is why we have created a culture fit for anyone who wants to feel cared for, valued, and doesn’t want to be stuck behind a desk all day,” says Rose. “There’s not an abundance of jobs where you can get a paid vacation, 401k, benefits, 100% paid health care, and paid holidays, while also having the opportunity to make more than $75,000 a year.”
