Is Your Company Feeling the Impact of the Labor Shortage?

Skilled to Build Michigan Foundation is working on a daily basis to fill the labor shortage being felt in the residential construction industry. The mission of our non-profit is to build awareness of the many career opportunities in the residential construction industry. We are reaching out to students, veterans, returning citizens daily to educate them on the opportunities available today, and in the future.

The Home Builders Association of Michigan is predicting a 4.2 percent increase in 2017 for single family permits over the previous year. Based on the data from the Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, in the 17 trades we are focused on, there were 2,412 openings at the end of December, 2016.

If you are interested in hiring a student, veteran, or qualified employee, please take a moment to fill out this form. By filling out this form, you will be connected to those seeking a career in the residential construction industry. We will also connect you with our partners to connect you with potential employees.

If you find yourself needing employees, we would encourage you to participate in our directory. Our directory is emailed out to our contacts in our database who are seeking employment and to our partners across the state that are in the position to find you an employee. We also take this guidebook with us to job fairs. Please fill out the “I’m Hiring” form by the 25th of each month so we can compile the directory and send it out the first of each month.
