For most fire sprinkler companies, the recruiting and hiring process is ongoing. As the war for talent rages on, recruiting and retaining new employees will be an ongoing process. That’s why AFSA is launching a campaign to raise awareness of fire sprinkler careers.
The NextGen Initiative, which is behind the effort hopes its “Become a Lifesaver” campaign gets the attention of veterans, millennials, and women, who may not have considered a career in the trade prior. Despite a recent push towards for apprenticeship and trades education, the fire sprinkler workforce is aging and not big enough to meet demand. The campaign includes a new website — firesprinklerjobs.org, outreach to schools, a career fair guide, and videos like below.
