According to a survey conducted by UpKeep, 80% of maintenance managers are able to retain good technicians. They do this primarily through keeping maintenance operations organized and their facilities safe to work in.
However, the survey did not inquire about how managers find these technicians and how they vet them.
At your organization, how do you find and hire good technicians?
Do you use job boards or referrals?
Do you look for specific certifications or experience?
Do you do reference checks or team interviews?
