Leadership Lounge: Recruiting the Next Generation

Nexstar President and CEO Jack Tester sits down with Nexstar member Geno Caccia to talk with Geno’s answer to the question of the moment: Where to find plumbing, electrical and HVAC technicians. It’s no secret that our industries are in something of a hiring crisis: People are retiring from jobs in the trades faster than they are entering them.

Geno, former president of the board of directors at PHCC California and owner of James Caccia Plumbing, has developed a recruiting program at James Caccia he calls “Ride and Decide.” It’s aimed at high school students at the sophomore to senior levels, who actually get hired on at James Caccia and coached through their time there.

Listen to the episode to learn more details about Ride and Decide, how the staff at James Caccia is able to reach students, and more.
