Session 1: Technician Recruiting
Presented Marc Brune, Development Manger, Mentor Mentee

Within the technician shortage, fleet businesses are increasingly focusing on "growing your own" technicians. This approach not only addresses the immediate need for skilled technicians but also helps build a talent pipeline, and a significant competitive advantage.
