Tradesmen International is proud to be a 2021 Gold Partner to Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), the national trade association for merit shop electrical and systems contractors. From commercial and residential to low and high voltage, Tradesmen International has been providing electrical contractors proven, safety-minded electricians for nearly 30 years.
IEC represents more than 3,600 member businesses that employ over 80,000 electrical and systems workers throughout the United States. The association educates nearly 14,000 electricians and systems professionals each year through world-class training programs.
“In a time when the demand for proven, licensed electricians can be as much as double all other trades, it is crucial to support IEC’s goal of building a resilient and prepared workforce that can adapt to changing economic times and bolster the electrical and systems contracting industry,” said Ed Rojeck, Director of Marketing, Tradesmen International.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of electricians is projected to grow 8 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. As employment opportunities for electricians continue to grow, Tradesmen stands at the ready to facilitate their employment. A nationally recognized leader in skilled labor staffing solutions, Tradesmen has more than 200 construction-experienced recruiters positioned throughout the nearly 200 markets they serve. Each is prepared to support IEC member companies with their electrical staffing needs—from apprentice to journey-level to state-licensed—nationwide.
By leveraging Tradesmen’s nationwide recruiting power, electrical contractor clients can expand into new markets and bid on projects outside of their normal area. The same holds true for the ability to bid on larger projects that require additional labor beyond the scope of their existing workforce. One client commented, “By working closely with our local service reps, we don’t ever turn down work because we’re confident we can get the great quality labor we need, when we need it. Knowing that, we have even been able to bid on projects larger than we would normally tackle.”
In addition to appreciating Tradesmen’s national recruiting power, clients enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing they will receive high quality professionals with no sacrifice to job profitability or productivity. And by not having to add permanent payroll as workload or geographic reach expands, client can save thousands of dollars in labor-related and hiring and dehiring costs.
“All our electricians successfully complete a stringent vetting process, are provided OSHA-10 Safety Training and are subject to regular client satisfaction evaluations. The result—you receive the same overall quality you expect from your permanent workforce,” said Rojeck. “You receive workers who are reliable and who emphasize safety, productivity and craftsmanship.”
