or tent and event rental businesses, the approach of
winter brings a mix of anticipation and worry. For
most, it means the end of the busy outdoor event season,
80-hour workweeks, staffing headaches and a chance to
finally catch up on maintenance, repairs and in-house
projects. After months of use, those tents could probably
use some TLC, and page 22 offers expert tips on cleaning
and repairs.
But winter is also the time of year when this industry
lays off its seasonal workers. There isn't enough work
to justify keeping them year-round but given how
difficult it was to find them in the first place-never
mind retain them through the busy season-it's hard
not to immediately begin worrying about starting the
process over again next spring. Finding (and keeping)
good employees has always been a struggle, and the
pandemic only made it exponentially harder. Building a
solid team of dedicated, hardworking and enthusiastic
employees is perhaps the best use of any company's
time and resources. On page 16, you'll find advice from
three longtime members of the industry who have
found solutions to the problems of recruitment and
retention that go beyond simply increasing wages.
One of the tips offered is to make sure your company
has the latest technology, tools and equipment to enable
employees to work smarter, not harder. In our next
issue, we'll be looking at some of the software and apps
available to the industry, but be sure to check out the
2023 Premier Product Showcase on page 29 where
you'll find not just software but tools, decor, accessories,
tents, fabrics, equipment and more.
Winter may be fast approaching, but it's never too
early to start preparing for next year's busy season.
Whether it's maintaining and repairing your inventory
of tents or your employees' morale and workplace
culture, the work you do now will pay big dividends in
the future.
