At every point in history, human capital has been one of the most precious resources on earth.
Finding the people who fit your business’s needs, qualifying those prospective employees, making sure they match your business culture, onboarding, training, and outfitting them with the best tools, tech, and support comes at a great cost.
The duct business is no different. Where do YOU find estimators?

If you are having trouble fostering discovery and growth in your staff, you are not alone.
The lack of human capital affects every aspect of professional life. When an employee leaves, a vacuum is created in the position that they left. The responsibility to fill that void can fall on the remaining employees in that department to absorb the work. This not only adds to their workload but also to their stress level. Morale drops, inevitably causing an overall decline in the collective output.
Your company might lose a good estimator if they go to work for a competitor, get promoted, fired, arrested, or any of the other methods that leave their seat empty, and their to-do list FULL.
This requires managers to refocus on filling that position. It takes their eye off the ball and away from their primary job of generating revenue and profit for the company. They pull other employees off important projects to train the new hire, diverting their energy and effort away from getting their jobs done. Likely, those mentors are senior staff, who are normally the most productive and efficient, when they aren’t training the rookie. When it’s all said and done, we hope they chose the right person for the job, because if it is not the right fit, this costly process starts all over again.
At The Cincinnatus Group, we set out to help companies solve this problem.
We all know that “the takeoff” is about 70% of the effort of a thorough estimate. We have developed a process of finding the right detail oriented, critical thinking, thorough individuals, then we bring them up to speed on some of the industry’s most popular estimating software.
It takes a special kind of person to understand specifications and mechanical plans. The Cincinnatus Group has an entire team made up of some of these extremely talented people.
“We are called on to solve, where others struggle” is our company’s motto and it’s how we can help.
Take a look at our website www.tcgduct.com and see if we may be a right fit for your firm. Whether you have an estimating department of 0 to 100 people, call us today at 878-295-8009 to discuss how we can assist.
