2018 Construction season

Blog, Featured Stories, Fun Cool Facts, General Information, Uncategorized

The reports are in and the construction industry is expected to continue to grow throughout 2018. As both the residential and commercial sectors continue to expand, one thing is certain — employers will need to hire valuable workers. This fact is especially important in an industry that has seen a slight decline in the number of workers in the past few years, which is exactly why employers should use a staffing company.

How Can A Staffing Company Help?
The latest forecast from the Associated General Contractors of America shows that both the number of projects, as well as the level of hiring, are expected to increase in Ohio and Pennsylvania. In fact, 95 percent of companies in Ohio anticipate hiring within 2018. Of this 95 percent, 26 percent of companies plan to expand their workforce by more than 10 percent. In Pennsylvania the entire construction industry is expected to increase by three percent.

A strong 2018 construction season means that employers will need to hire a wide range of workers. Reports also indicate that there will be an increase in the number of power, sewer, retail, manufacturing, and warehouse commercial projects, while multifamily residential projects will continue to gain moment. Like attempting to put a square peg into a round hole, the wrong match can lead to project delays and lost funds. Fortunately, through an efficient, yet thorough process, staffing companies are well equipped to find the right employer and employee matches. A staffing agency can:

  • Save employers time and money by providing candidate screening and interviewing services.
  • Find seasonal, temporary, and long-term placements.
  • Reduce overhead costs for employers.
  • Efficiently connect employers with a pool of over 250,000 potential candidates.
