Lisa Barrett

I had the pleasure of joining GeneratioNext Propane Pros at a zoom presentation with the HVAC class at East Valley Institute of Technology. It was by far the most rewarding recruiting experience I’ve had, and I can see how this program helps solve our industry’s workforce challenges. Michelle started off the presentation asking if any students had considered a career in our industry and few hands went up – they didn’t connect the skill set they were learning in class to a career in the propane industry. Michelle walked them through the benefits of a career in our industry and how their skill sets aligned – I was even afforded an opportunity to talk about Barrett Propane. Not only did this presentation allow me to interact with the students and instructors, I had the opportunity to speak with some great candidates too! Every propane company in Arizona should participate in one of these presentations, Michelle makes it easy, and you could end up with a new hire!
