Let's meet the goal of 150 respondents! The Research Committee set a goal of 150 respondents and is asking that all companies doing business in crane, rigging or specialized transport take 11 minutes to repsodn to the survey. Do you do business in both crane and rigging or other areas? That's okay! The survey is set-up so that you may skip any area that doesn't pertain to your business and only answer questions that are relevant to you. Plus - it's anonymous, and the data is not shared with members, committees or boards. This is the only report on workforce demographics for this specific industry. This is the data your workforce boards want to see, the information SC&RA needs to advocate on your behalf and the evidence to support your recruiting efforts.
