The labor shortage in the news has NOT affected us! We have turned the corner as of this Fall.
As many employers (including us) had turned to the youth in our valley these past summers we feel that we have done our part with training. Our youth did not have the industry knowledge, nor the work ethic that Black Diamond exudes. However, we have found our keepers and our goal is to continue with on-the-job training with our additions of Ana and Dave being their mentors next year.
Mariella, Todd, and the management team were stretched thin at times having to wear too many hats and being pulled in multiple directions between sales, communication, mentoring, training, administration, estimating, maintenance, human resources, accounting, and being in the field leading the work teams. Acknowledging this challenge we have addressed it. By investing in our infrastructure with Jobber and QuickBooks online, employee housing units increased benefits, and attracting new hires coming WITH industry experience we are poised and excited for 2022!
Black Diamond offers employee housing, Individual Health Care Reimbursement, phone stipends, retirement accounts with an employer match, competitive wages, time off benefits which include community service and paid volunteer hours, sick, vacation, personal and paid jury duty, etc., use of company vehicles and a great team environment!
We are an “Employer Of Choice” in our valley. Our employees are loyal to us and work full-time year-round.
