Overcome the Labor Shortage by Reaching Out to Local Community Partners

With the booming construction industry, labor (especially for tradespeople) is in high demand. Throw in an immigration crackdown, the aging workforce, and young people’s lack of interest in trades, and you’ve got a perfect storm of a construction labor shortage. If you’re like other builders, you’re having a tough time filling positions and sailing through projects on time.

Learn to weather this new climate with guidance from industry consultant Dave O’Brien. In this webinar, he’ll explain the realities and ramifications of the labor shortage and what you can do now to attract the tradespeople you need to get current and future projects off the ground. Specifically, O’Brien will show you how to tap new employee sources, such as reaching out to veterans’ and women’s groups—and even working with local schools to implement feeder trades training programs.

After attending this webinar, you will understand the key factors driving the current labor shortage, the impacts of the tight market, and how you can be part of the solution to change the perceptions of trades employment. O’Brien will also introduce you to the particularities of Generation Z and how to appeal to the needs of this new segment of the workforce.

There’s no sign that the current labor shortage will ease anytime soon. Now is the time to equip yourself to confront it. Take action in your community to inspire, educate, and attract qualified construction industry workers.
