The demand levels in the HVAC industry are subject to seasonal fluctuations. In the summer months, demand for air-conditioning units increases, while during the cold season, heating systems are in demand. But these swing periods are only rough indicators, because even a rainy, overly cold summer can lead to a slump in air conditioning sales. In addition, seasons that are extreme, i.e. a very hot summer or a very cold winter, lead to a sudden increase in demand and production has to be ramped up within a very short time.
In other words, it is difficult to make forecasts in the HVAC industry. The industry therefore needs concepts that are designed to respond spontaneously to unpredictability. This flexibility is necessary not only for the HVAC equipment manufacturers, but also for suppliers. Production volumes must be continuously adapted to meet customers` requirements. What is essential here is a comprehensive knowledge of the industry, good judgment and the ability to make the right decisions quickly.
Vacant top positions must not remain unfilled for long in such a volatile industry. However, due to the shortage of skilled workers and the very specific requirements of the position, recruitment processes can often drag on for a long time. In order to avoid giving competitors in the market an unnecessary competitive edge, an interim solution provides the necessary peace of mind for the personnel search and also plenty of valuable expertise from which a company can benefit.
