Why do people quit a job? Or worse, why do they leave an entire industry behind just to start over in a new one? There are no simple answers to these questions, as the topic of employee retention is a complicated and tricky equation with a number of moving parts.
With a relatively stable economy and new advances in floorcovering products and installation techniques, we find our industry in a strong position for growth. However, this doesn’t mean that retention in the floorcovering industry is 100%. While retention remains strong for INSTALL members, other businesses and independent contractors continue to struggle to keep talented, dependable and trained workers employed long-term.
