Building Relationships and Celebrating Skilled Trade Careers with Greg Crumpton
In this episode of People. Process. Service.™, hosts Bill Kasko and Tyler Kern are joined by Greg Crumpton, VP at ServiceLogic, to discuss his journey into the HVAC industry and the significance of investing in skilled trades.
This episode sheds light on the critical role of trades in our society, emphasizing the need to attract and invest in skilled individuals through innovative approaches, such as utilizing social media platforms and embracing the "learn one, teach one" philosophy.
“The goal is, the way I'd describe it, learn one, teach one. So, if you learn a trade, your duty as a tradesperson is to teach another,” says Crumpton. He shares the story of how he was taught to crimp a wire, and now it is his duty to help others learn the same skill. This principle forms the foundation for the growth and advancement of tradespeople. It also speaks strongly to the principles of People. Process. Service.™.
Greg emphasizes the importance of creating awareness about trade careers among young people. He suggests that platforms like Instagram, social media, and short segment videos are key in reaching out to them effectively. Greg uses an interesting and important example to convey the significance of skilled trades: when someone needs to repair a toilet, there is a need for someone knowledgeable in that area. However, it is crucial to communicate this in a way that is not off-putting or unappealing.
Greg’s passion for the trades and their importance in our society is highlighted throughout this conversation. To learn more about Greg and to follow all of his different endeavors, visit his website. Also, be sure to check out his latest project HVACiCons, which is launching soon.
