Get Creative for Post-Pandemic Construction Recruiting

August 31, 2020
Annalisa Enrile - Construction Executive

Though the COVID-19 pandemic has put millions out of work, essential workers in industries like construction have continued. Considered part of the more than 17 million workers in infrastructure jobs that include construction site workers, electricians, plumbers, other skilled trades and project managers, the need for a consistent labor force is even more urgent. Questions about how to fill labor gaps due to illness, vulnerability to the pandemic and aging pose real challenges to companies.

While these labor gaps might seem insurmountable or—at the very least—unfillable, another way to look at it is an opportunity. Namely, this is an opening for construction executives to think outside of the box or, in this case, traditional populations where hiring occurs and instead look to untapped communities.
