It is a reality. For construction employers, a workforce shortage is just around the corner and with many returning veterans and military spouses seeking employment, making a connection is a win for all. As part of the construction industry’s effort to hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years, the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation presented a 60-minute webinar on Hiring Our Heroes: Best Practices for Construction Employers. Led by seasoned veteran recruitment experts, this webinar provided construction industry employers with the insight necessary to find, recruit, and hire returning veterans and military spouses.
During this webinar, participants learned how to:
- Identify activities they can engage in to successfully recruit veterans;
- Connect with organizations that can assist them in creating a pipeline to veterans; and
- Identify resources that will assist with matching military work experience with construction industry job classifications.
