Giving Back with a Purpose – Beyond the Holidays.

As the holiday season winds down, it is a great time to consider setting the goal of supporting others and giving back. While there are a number of ways for businesses to be charitable—whether volunteering company time to a worthy non-profit or organizing a drive to collect food, clothes or toys—corporate social responsibility can be even more rewarding when your give-backs make a lasting impact on your community. 

When Fieldpiece read the following in the September issue of HVACR Business, we knew we had to do something:  

80,000 HVACR technician jobs are currently unfilled — representing 39 percent of the total industry workforce. At the same time, the industry is losing an estimated 20,000 technician jobs per year due to the retirement of an aging workforce or basic career attrition rates.” 

As a company devoted to the HVACR industry for more than 30 years, Fieldpiece recently announced the launch of its #MasteroftheTrade Scholarship developed in partnership with SkillsUSA. Through this collaboration, Fieldpiece is helping to equip young HVACR techs in-the-making with new opportunities to succeed.  

The program is designed to help close the skills gap in the U.S. labor market by supplying ten $2,500 scholarships to students in their junior or senior year of high school and beyond, to help them continue their education in an HVACR program.

Giving back is always a rewarding experience, especially when you are helping the community you are passionate about. Nevertheless, whether the act is a donation or the gift of time to help others—goodwill and charity go a long way. What will you do to give back this season?
