Staffing is one of the top challenges a company struggles with and in the current climate there is no statement truer than in the industrial and construction industry.
“Construction Workforce Shortage Tops Half a Million in 2023”, headlined a February 2023 news release published by the national construction industry trade association, Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). According to the ABC release, the construction industry would need to attract an estimated 546,000 additional workers on top of the normal pace of hiring in 2023 to meet the demand for labor.
In the press release, ABC’s Chief Economist Anirban Basu said, “First, while single-family home building activity has moderated, many contractors continue to experience substantial demand from a growing number of mega-projects associated with chip manufacturing plants, clean energy facilities, and infrastructure. Second, too few younger workers are entering the skilled trades, meaning this is not only a construction labor shortage but also a skills shortage.”
“We are at the half-way mark of 2023 and companies are still facing extreme staffing challenges in the industry,” says Jason Stephens, managing partner at skilled staffing company, LEAD Tampa Bay. A twenty-year construction industry veteran, Jason is confident that LEAD can make a significant impact with companies struggling to meet their skilled trade labor demands.
