Jon Davis Companies Hosts Retail Ready Lunch & Learn.
Recruiting Talent among Returning Veterans

The Jon Davis Companies recently hosted a “Lunch & Learn” event at their training facility in Irving, Texas. Area HVAC professionals were invited to tour the facility and learn how the Retail Ready programs available here benefit them and bring more available talent to the industry which sorely needs it. The Company has developed a one of a kind, exclusive training program that combines classroom room (live laboratory) training at their state of the art facility with real world on the job training, running service and sales calls with their instructors

The Jon Davis Companies, Inc. has recognized that the single largest need of the HVAC industry is skilled, trained service technicians and salespeople. The current shortage of technicians in North America is reported to be as high as 25,000 open positions. This number is estimated to grow to well over 100,000 in just a few short years. When you consider this lack of available talent, combined with limited technical training resources, and technician development programs, it becomes obvious why most companies simply “recycle” the same technicians and salespeople throughout their market year after year.

The Retail READY Career Center has been developed to put an end to this cycle, and provide a resource for residential HVAC contractors to recruit and hire the right person, with the right attitude and aptitude for the position. The Company uses several resources for recruiting top quality employees, one of which is returning veterans from all branches of the military. This is always their first and preferred resource for identifying potential candidates. These men and women have honored, served, and protected our country and our freedoms. To thank them for this service, The Jon Davis Companies, Inc. is committed to helping these individuals in taking the next steps to a successful career and future.
