Show Notes

Home integration can be an incredibly rewarding industry but also a pretty stressful one. Many integrators work on their own or in small businesses where it’s difficult to find a work-life balance, especially with work on-site often demanding long hours away from home and meeting high client expectations. Uncertainties arising from the pandemic have made things worse. At least half a million more people in the UK may experience mental ill health as a result of COVID-19, says a forecast from The Centre for Mental Health, and that’s likely to rise even higher after the second lockdown. Meanwhile, another survey found that 73% of all building and construction workers feel that their employers did not understand or recognise the early signs of poor mental health, or offer any support. So, what can be done to manage our health and well-being for the better? The Integrated Home Podcast is supported by Ring X Line, Distributed by Meridian, AWE Europe and Sony. We are a Wildwood production and we support Together for Cinema.

Where has the industry come from, where is it now and where is it going? How does this evolution affect how integrators do business? And, what are the implications for the value that the industry places on the services it provides? We’ll also be looking at the challenges of dealing with customers from different nationalities and age profiles. It's a diverse market we serve, so what approaches work best for customer groups from diverse backgrounds?
