Finding Trade Technicians, with Barry Adams, Peachtree Awnings
Barry Adams: And we don’t have a thousand employees, but we always need one, two good trade technicians. And so whether it’s welding or project management, construction management or installation technicians we can find those, but you really and I told my HR manager, When you build these relationships with an institution like Gwinnett Tech, you can’t be one and done.
You gotta show up all the time, if they have a job fair. You can’t just be a fair weather friend. You have to be there all the time because they’re in the business of placing their students. They’re in the business of finding jobs for their students. And we help assist that and create that pipeline for people coming out of their technical school into Peachtree Awnings.
And it’s really, it’s took a little time, took a little time, but like any relationship you’ll get out of it, what you put into it. And I feel like what we get out, we’ll get from the tech is a times 10 kind of relationship. So it’s been really awesome.
