Equipter How to Support Roofing Crews
September 5, 2023 at 9:00 a.m.

By Equipter. 

With rising competition for crews, it is more important than ever to encourage both your team as a whole and each individual crew member. 

No roofing business could expect to prosper and grow without its integral crew members. As unemployment decreases and competition rises, there are many ways you can support your team by increasing job satisfaction and employee retention. The following article covers six considerations for creating and maintaining a constructive workplace, including the use of the Equipter 4000. 

Training and professional development: Investing in your crew is key. Offering opportunities to pick up new skills and for career advancement, such as training programs, certifications or workshops on new roofing techniques will strengthen your crew’s ability and will lead to better efficiency. Resources to enhance your crew’s skills can be as simple as providing links to video tutorials online such as the equipment training videos on the Equipter’s tutorial page

Safety training and equipment: Emphasize your company's commitment to safety. Highlight robust safety protocols, training and investment in high-quality equipment. Workers prioritize their well-being and a strong culture of safety from the top down can be a significant factor in attracting and keeping experienced roofers. Crews from coast to coast use the Equipter 4000 to maintain a safe jobsite.  

Team building: Organizing team-building activities can help create a sense of belonging within your roofing crew. This can include outings, team lunches and group activities. Encouraging teamwork and creating a positive work environment can greatly enhance your crew’s morale. 

Recognition: Establish a culture of appreciation by celebrating individual and company-wide successes. This can include employee of the month programs, performance-based bonuses or small rewards. All employees seek a supportive and appreciative work environment. 

Open communication and opportunities for input: Involve employees in decision-making processes that affect their jobsite. Seek your crew’s input, ideas and suggestions regarding work processes and equipment. When employees feel their opinions are valued and heard, it can increase their job satisfaction. Try to keep a transparent workplace by regularly updating your crew about company news, changes and goals.  

Regular performance reviews and constructive feedback: Recognize each crew member’s strengths and areas for improvement. Work with them to set clear goals for them to reach success. This helps employees understand their progress and feel supported in their professional growth while also strengthening crews as whole.
