We invest in people, not just their skills.
As a company in the trade field, out turnover rate is high just like any other contractor. But in the past few years, we have focused on building up our painters assistants and crew leaders through training and development on and off the job sites.
Currently we run about three to four crews each week. Each crew can vary from one to four painters depending on the size of the project. Through multiple layers of accountability, our painters are always kept in communication with project goals, timeframes and any other customer concerns.
We want to break contractor stereotypes and show that our process for job sites and projects are taken with the upmost care and that much attention is paid to our customer’s satisfaction.
Earlier this summer, we began hosting leadership development meetings to encourage and develop employees who are not only crew leaders but who show characteristics of leaders we respect. This doesn’t just include great delegation or a tendency to lead multiple people, but also humbleness, a heart of service, initiation, and a willingness to learn.
By doing this, we have worked with a great handful of men who are here for the long run. We share a mutual respect and also a bond of friendship that is unseen in most trade companies big or small.
At Joseph’s Coat Painting, we invest in people because people matter.
