Property Management is finding it more difficult to hire technical talent such as building engineers and in recent years the time required to fill these jobs has caused service disruptions.

The commercial real estate industry has a problem with the current workforce. It is estimated by some BOMA sources that 55% of building engineers will retire within the next 10 years. Join BOMA Georgia and Able Services on June 25th at 4pm in room 211 for the panel titled ‘Recruit the Next Generation of Building Engineers‘ at BOMA International’s annual conference.

Building engineers are responsible for the operation and preservation of the real estate asset as well as delivering tenants a comfortable environment. Without adequate staff a building can cost more to operate and experience service failures.

To best address the labor shortage and be prepared for the future, the panel discussion identifies four learning objectives:

  1. Learn to brand your company as a great place to work.
  2. Learn to encourage staff to tap into their networks by rewarding them.
  3. Create a competitive compensation package that reflects your company culture and will be attractive to younger building engineers looking for a career which meets their interests, skills, and ability.
  4. Demonstrate your company’s values and align it with today’s engineering and service workers.

The panel includes Gabriel Eckhart, Executive Director of BOMA Georgia and co-author of “From Insight to Action: Six New Ways to Think, Lead, and Achieve,” Dawn R. Short, Sr. HR Business Partner at Able Services, and Mark Kelly, President of Able Services.

Able Services is the USA’s largest family-owned and privately-held provider of full service maintenance solutions. Since 1926, Able has provided effective solutions for building owners, reducing their operating costs and preserving asset valuations. Serving over one billion sq. ft. with 17,000 employees, Able is ‘Service at Work.’
