90% of construction firms struggle to find skilled workers. It’s only getting worse, and raising wages isn’t the solution. If we want to continue business as usual, we have to change the way we recruit, train, and retain employees.

Our meet up on October 12th is your chance to learn and share workforce development tactics with contractors like you.

We’ll hear from the only business owner we know that has ZERO labor challenges, then break out into rooms for Q&A with your peers and our expert panel.

Hear subs like you ask, discuss, and answer questions like:

  • What are you selling to future employees other than a higher salary?
  • Where are you finding your best new workers?
  • How do you approach training new and younger employees?
