Workforce Development

AGC considers “workforce development” as a broad umbrella that encompasses both those activities that encourage students in elementary, middle or high school to consider the potential of a career in construction and those that help prepare young people for their first jobs in the industry, either through craft training or a two- or four-year degree. Industry recruitment and retention are essential to the future of the construction industry. Just as important as finding craft workers, project managers and supervisors is ensuring that these essential workers are properly educated and trained.

 

 

In 2014 AGC of Ohio collaborated with Ohio Contractors Association and seven regional construction associations to develop BuildOhio.org, a website aimed at educating the public about careers in construction and guiding them to the various training programs in Ohio. AGC of Ohio is working to get the word out about construction careers to guidance counselors across the state.
