New Resources Help You Recruit Skilled Labor

NAHB continues to update its members-only Skilled Workforce Development Resources to help you recruit skilled labor and spread the word about the valuable careers available in residential construction. NAHB economists recently analyzed the latest salary data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to provide HBAs and members with updated information about their local residential construction labor market.

The new salary data are promoted in the following resources:

  • State Wage and Workforce Demand Data: State-specific data, including the annual average wages in construction and the projected workforce demand by state and for the top 100 metro areas.
  • Careers in Construction Posters: This series of posters will help you promote residential construction careers at schools, career fairs, career exploration days, educational conferences and local community events.

Plus, you can share our public Building a Skilled Labor Workforce page with educators, policymakers and industry partners to provide them with resources to help promote these career opportunities in their communities. Resources include the Careers in Construction posters, brochures, lesson plans, a presentation template and more.

    The link to the state wage and workforce demand data does not work

    • NAHB Now says:

      It works when you are signed in to the website, Shea. It’s an NAHB member benefit.

        It’s not the best use of a hyperlink if one has to be logged in first before clicking on it in order to not receive a “Page Not Found” error. Why does it not bring users to a login portal first?

        • NAHB Now says:

          You’re right, Samantha, and we’ve fixed the link so that it should now prompt you to log in. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
