Lessons From the Field: Why Did They Come and Why Do They Stay?

NRCA's Workforce Solutions Committee recently conducted a survey of U.S. roofing industry field employees. The good news? They like their jobs and want to refer people to their companies.

Hundreds of roofing field employees completed surveys designed to find out:
    • How they began work in the roofing industry
    • What they like and don't like about it
    • Why they've stayed with their companies

Roofing contractors are struggling to figure out how to find and retain reliable employees. The survey data, presented by Amy Staska, vice president of NRCA University, helps NRCA identify the reasons for these success stories and identifies some problem areas to help determine how to best approach future employee recruitment and retention efforts.
