Software for Hardware Publishes “5 Keys to Hiring Success” Whitepaper
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATLANTA, GA (August 1, 2023) Software for Hardware released their latest whitepaper titled, “5 Keys to Hiring Success for Door, Frame, and Hardware Distributors.” Based on current data and door distributors’ testimonials, this paper investigates the widespread problem of insufficient staffing in the door, frame, and hardware industry and presents hiring solutions.
Lisa Oxman, CEO, Software for Hardware, comments on the current situation: “We see many distributors today facing the reality of older employees’ retirement and looking for ways to hire the next generation.” In the wake of older workers retiring and record industry demand, door distributors struggle to keep up staffing levels to satisfy customer activity.
Mitch Lazar, CEO, Rapid Door agrees. “We as industry leaders really need to step up and figure out a program to recruit more young people into the industry,” he says.
Meanwhile, millennials stand out as a growing majority in the U.S. workforce. Software for Hardware reasons that door distributors will find success in recruiting the younger generation as older generations retire, and to do so means tailoring their tools and attitudes towards more modern values and workplace attitudes.
The paper provides five key strategies for attracting the new generation of workers. These strategies include actionable steps to take throughout the entire hiring process – from discovering suitable candidates through new avenues, to conducting a streamlined interview process, to fostering an appealing company culture.
It also offers advice on retaining workers. By providing employees with non-monetary benefits as well as project management technology that makes their lives more convenient, employers can encourage long-term employment and invest in a new wave of door and hardware professionals.
The research also shows that companies using modern technology are more successful in recruiting younger generation employees. Ian Oxman, Co-Owner Software for Hardware commented, “Over the past few years many companies have purchased our software in order to attract, or satisfy, new hires.” Software for Hardware asserts that embracing new technology is one key to hiring success.
