Bridging the construction workforce gap by attracting the next generation of skilled workers


The U.S. construction industry continues to recover from the worst recession in a generation, and employment has risen to its highest point since 2008. But it’s hardly business as usual.

It’s no secret that many workers left the construction industry as the downturn intensified, changing career paths or retiring altogether.  This, coupled with shrinking training programs, has left the industry in a major bind.  As the demand for construction remains high, contractors are struggling to find qualified skilled workers.  Many have started partnering with educators and employment and government agencies to identify creative ways to solve the skilled labor shortage.

Clark Schaefer Hackett has assembled a panel of local experts who will provide an in-depth look at the construction industry labor shortage and what’s being done to bridge the gap.

Attendees will:
•    Get a more in-depth understanding of the current landscape and employment trends in the construction industry
•    See how companies are competing in the war for talent
•    Learn how employers, trade groups and industry educators are responding
•    Understand how to take advantage of tax credits and incentives available for training and hiring
