Let’s make a difference together!
Today and for many years to come, the construction industry in Colorado, like the rest of our country, is facing a major workforce crisis. The need for new skilled workers is projected to be close to 45,000 workers in the next five years – a 25% increase from where we are today. This shortage impacts every company and our community at every level. We must work together to solve this problem with a focus on both short and long-term workforce development needs.
The time is now for you and your company to get involved in our workforce development and recruiting efforts. The need for new skilled trades workers continues to increase and the interest, awareness, and benefits of a career in construction continue to grow. We need to fight the battle for workers with competing industries more than ever before. We also need to continue to promote the idea that a career in construction is not a second or third alternative but should be looked upon as a first consideration.
Your company’s participation in CEF’s “Many Hands Campaign” is critical to our continued success. With all of us pitching in to support workforce development we can accomplish our collective mission.
We appreciate your support.
