Future Workforce Conference


11.29.2018 7:30AM - 4:00PM

Premier Sponsors

Here’s something exciting: According to PwC’s global construction forecast, the AEC industry is expected to grow by 85%, reaching $15.5 trillion by 2030.

That’s good, right? Yes, but: The increasing consumer demand runs starkly counter to a sharp decline in available talent.

The built world has a major workforce dilemma.

An aging workforce, an ongoing labor shortage, a lack of understanding about how to attract millennials, and a reluctance to adopt technology are all contributing factors.

Nonetheless, the reality is that our emerging workforce is not meeting the evolving needs of the industry, and because of it, companies are consistently turning away projects. And thus, profits.

At the Future Workforce Conference, we’re featuring 20+ experts in recruiting and HR in AEC/RE to talk about how to solve our industry’s workforce dilemma once and for all.

We’ll feature specific front-line case studies of successful recruiting tactics from industry leaders, interactive breakout sessions to get to the ‘core’ of your workforce issues and networking to help you meet like-minded senior leaders who are exploring similar solutions.
