We Respect the Craft

Recognizing Amazing Tradespeople

The tradesmen and tradeswomen we send to job sites every day are the heart of PeopleReady Skilled Trades. Their jobs aren’t always easy and are often performed in difficult working conditions. But, it’s these hard-working men and women who we rely on every day to help build our country.

Recruiting and retaining talented tradespeople and skilled laborers is the most critical business challenge facing the construction industry. And, to us, showing appreciation and respect in support of their hard work is essential.

So, to show our respect for the hard work and dedication of our tradespeople, we created Respect the Craft™, a recognition program that rewards more than 45 workers each month.

How are individuals selected?

Throughout the month, they would have exhibited one or more of the following:

  • Had a standout moment going above and beyond
  • Took initiative by helping another teammate on the job site
  • Showcased our culture principles
  • Demonstrated outstanding safety practices
  • Never missed a shift or worked the most hours

Great tradespeople make a difference

To us, Respect the Craft™ is more than a rewards program. It’s a core value that guides us in our work every day. We treat our workers like family. We take pride in rewarding high-performing tradespeople who display valued qualities and behaviors. We appreciate and respect every tradesperson for their unique strengths and talents, as well as for what they do for our customers every single day.

How Respect the Craft works

1. At the end of each month, each branch chooses a standout tradesperson based on the criteria mentioned above.

2. The branch then selects a gift for the individual that they may need––whether it’s tools or other worker essentials.

3. The winner is presented with their prize at the job site they’re working on at that time.

4. We congratulate the winner in a variety of ways––on both a local and national scale.
