Construction and Manufacturing
The economy is good. Demand is up. Orders are plentiful. This is all good news, except for the labor shortage. Consider these numbers:
- 2M skilled workers are needed now to address market growth.
- 86% of contractors struggle to staff crews.
- 70% of the industry workforce is 45 or older.
Despite these figures, you can attract the talent you need. Many young people are underemployed and looking for a career path. They simply don’t know about the opportunities and benefits within your industry.
Amy partners with you to shape your pitch and tell your story so that you can attract the attention of Millennials and Gen Z. She then reveals the keys to reviving a work ethic among young generations and the programs needed to keep them engaged.

A Note From Amy:
My grandfather was a carpenter, and my father and brother were in marine repair. When I was 20, I could fix my own car, liked working with my hands and needed to make money. So I went to a construction company and asked for work. That was 1974, and the guys laughed me out of the office because I was a girl. You might have laughed, too, back then. But if my 20-year-old self could walk into your office today, you’d hire me. Not just because women work construction these days, but because we are in the midst of a historic shortage—and it's getting worse. That’s the problem I can help you solve.
