Thornhvac conducted a survey throughout 2015 to find out which ventilation manufacturers people most want to work for and why.
We wanted to know which companies were perceived as being leaders in their field and why and we sought the opinions of people currently working within the industry.
This wasn’t about asking people to tell us about their current or past employer and what they thought of them. It was about perceptions within the industry. We wanted to know why some companies had a good reputation with those working in the ventilation sector and why.
Respondents ranked more than 40 different ventilation manufacturers with Nuaire, Vent Axia, Flaktwoods and Elta Fans topping the league table.
The survey showed that product quality, good management and service and technical support were the strongest influencing factors when people made their decision about which company they would most like to work for.
A strong brand, the financial stability of the company and product availability were other key considerations amongst those questioned.
The survey gave respondents an opportunity to mention specific details about companies they had personal experience of and this provided some useful information on some of the less high profile brands. This will be particularly useful in our work as we talk to candidates about the different career opportunities we have available in the ventilation sector.
