“Leaders don’t create followers; they create more leaders. “

-Tom Peters 

 

Employee retention is a hot topic as 1/3 of new employees leave their job after about 6 months.

Additionally, over 70% of employers are having a tough time recruiting skilled candidates.

How does RESNET’s Emerging Leadership Council (ELC) work to address these challenges?

How can membership in the ELC help to shape someone’s career?


Today’s podcast will attempt to answer these questions with the help of Dylan Tindall and Jacob Kamen, the new Chair and Vice Chair-elect, respectively, of the RESNET Emerging Leadership Council.

In addition to learning more about Dylan and Jacob’s varied backgrounds, we hear about the work they are doing as the incoming leadership of the ELC.

Learn what motivates these emerging leaders and how a career in the home energy rating industry can be fulfilling from both technical and people-based perspectives.

The three major themes for the ELC include:

Recruitment of new Raters – With a focus on younger individuals still in school, helping them see the earning potential inherent with someone with a Building Science education

Retention of existing Raters – With a focus on those new to the Rating industry, creating content to help them succeed in the Building Science Industry

ELC membership opportunities – With a focus on networking within RESNET; working to plan, organize and implement signature ELC events and activities; and to collaborate to troubleshoot common challenges and propose solutions utilizing RESNET’s existing Standards Development Process

We wrap up the conversation learning of Jacob and Dylan’s outlook for the future of the HERS industry.
