'Who can be the catalyst?' Forum explores roots of construction labor shortage, and 4 solutions
from Construction Dive
The construction industry has been dealing with its "elephant in the room" — or the skilled labor shortage — for years, and the conversation is getting louder as stakeholders search for solutions to the issue crippling stronger growth in the sector. During HomeAdvisor's Insights Forum Friday, Feb. 26, expert panelists addressed the complicated circumstances surrounding the labor shortage, as well as possible solutions. But as John Courson, president and CEO of the Home Builders Institute, noted, "We're sort of preaching to the choir here." The panelists said the conversation needs to advance beyond the industry to reach the general media, officials and others who can help drive significant change.
