How to Cope with a Skilled Labor Shortage

“I can’t service 20% of my stores because we can’t find the right tradespeople.”

1 Stop Maintenance

Even with millions out of work, finding workers continues to get more and more difficult. A survey by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) found that employers’ top concern is labor, with 85% expecting future cost and availability problems, up from 13% in 2011. Back in 2003, Electrical Contractor magazine wrote about an impending electrician shortage, warning that it was “too late to avoid it.” Now, almost 20 years later, it’s clear the magazine was correct. Employers have struggled to fill electrician positions for years — long before national labor shortages made headlines.

To add to the skilled labor shortage, nearly 100,000 establishments that temporarily shut down due to the pandemic are permanently out of business.
All businesses with a physical presence require regular maintenance and repairs. From electrical to janitorial, door maintenance to HVAC, glass treatments to plumbing – the list is endless. Constantly trying to find and establish relationships with new contractors is an exhausting process and wastes valuable resources.
