Attracting and retaining business aviation talent remains one of the industry’s most formidable challenges. Savvy aviation managers have a rapport with their human resources staff and they work together to help their company hire and hold on to bizav’s best and brightest. “The first thing that has to happen [when working with HR] is the recruiter and the human resource director need to understand what we do [in business aviation],” says maintenance director Mike Pecore. “If it’s them coming out [to the airport] and shadowing us for a while or interviewing the current team … Let them get to know the organization.”
