The Construction Workforce Collaborative is a group of construction employers working collectively to address the growing workforce shortage in the industry. While the collaborative has identified a multi-layered strategy to address the growing workforce shortage, the most urgent of these priorities is a career awareness campaign to fill the pipeline for employers and education partners. As such, the GPCF Construction Workforce Collaborative is developing a campaign around the construction trades which will launch in early 2019.
The goal of this campaign is to build more awareness around construction careers, ultimately leading to an increase in the number of qualified individuals seeking employment in the construction industry.
- 86% of employers struggle to fill hourly craft jobs and salaried professional positions.
- There are more than 10,000 open construction jobs in Arizona alone.
- Construction projects continue to experience delays due to the lack of available talent.
