Finding talent is so important to residential integrators, results of the recent “Voice of the Integrator” study commissioned by CEDIA in collaboration with Butler University show. It revealed that 54% of employers surveyed in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico identified finding qualified employees as the top issue they’re facing.
