“There may be no better time than now to be considered a top employer in the construction industry. Companies are competing for a small pool of workers to complete a backlog of projects. By some estimates, the United States has been short 1 million construction workers this year, as not all employees have returned to work, due to various factors tied to the COVID-19 pandemic and as workers have retired in record numbers, all while the housing market has been booming.”
“In this market, it’s the nice guys, or gals, who finish first. The construction companies that offer a positive workplace environment, good pay, training and opportunities for advancement are the ones that are winning the workforce shortage. The past year presented an enormous challenge for construction companies. Any employer who was able to retain and attract happy employees deserves some credit.” – Construction Pros
