When you think about investing in your business, you probably envision upgrading your facilities, purchasing new equipment and buying new vehicles. All too often, HVACR contractors overlook investing in their most valuable commodity — their employees.
Research estimates that 70 percent of all HVACR equipment installed during the last decade has inadequate airflow, 67 percent has been improperly charged and 72 percent of the systems are oversized.
High Yield Contractors understand that lack of appropriate training costs them and their customers millions of dollars on wasted energy — and that's why they invest in training.
Training opportunities are abundant in today's marketplace — local wholesale distribution network, community colleges, trade schools, webinars and other resources. Many High Yield Contractors also offer their own in-house training, allowing them to tailor training to their specific needs.
Be proactive with training and educating your team — and view it as an investment instead of an expense — and you'll soon be on your way to becoming a High Yield Contractor.
