AGC Workforce Survey 2022 Released to Media Today
91 Percent of Construction Firms Having a Hard Time Finding Workers to Hire, Driving Up Costs and Project Delays, New Survey by the Associated General Contractors of America and Autodesk Finds
Excerpts from News Release:
Many construction firms report they are taking steps to overcome workforce shortages. In addition to the fact most firms have raised pay rates, 45 percent are providing incentives and bonuses and a quarter of firms (24 percent) have also improved their benefits packages.
“There is plenty of work for the industry to perform, there just aren’t enough people to do the work or materials to complete the projects.” said Simonson. “Addressing labor shortages and supply chain problems will ensure that the construction industry can upgrade America’s infrastructure, modernize its manufacturing sector and help deliver a more reliable and cleaner energy grid.”
The association and Autodesk conducted the Workforce Survey in late July and early August. Nearly 1,300 firms completed the survey from a broad cross-section of the construction industry, including union and open shop firms of all sizes. The 2022 Workforce Survey is the association’s 10th annual workforce-related survey. Read full news release here.
