Women In Pest Management
The women who
are changing the game.
We celebrate women in the industry
Admittedly, and perhaps without surprise, the pest management industry has never exactly enticed an impressive following of female talent. In fact, according to a 2014 study published by the US Department of Labor, a mere 3.7% of women were professionally engaged in pest management. But, the future is bright...
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, pest management jobs are predicted to grow by 20% through 2022, a pace that exceeds any other occupation.
to close the gap
for women in the industry...
by encouraging more women to embark on lucrative and fulfilling careers within the pest management services sector. Our determination has already paid off and we can now boast that 25% of our employees are women who have secured JP Pest Services jobs ranging from field service to executive positions.
The future is bright
Another priority for our corporate team concerns career advancement. Our efforts to inspire all of our employees has resulted in promoting from within whenever possible. Turns out, “possible” has far exceeded our predictions. An impressive number of our management and leadership positions have been filled by women who started with our company without any idea of just how far they would go.
