JOBS training, and minority contractor development program
In the US, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provides a “once-in-a-generation” investment of $350 billion for highways, roads, bridges, and other projects.3 Further recent legislation in the US—such as the CHIPS and Science Act and Inflation Reduction Act—which seek to spur the construction of domestic manufacturing capacity in numerous industries, adds significant stimulus as well.
As a result, many projects are lined up, but finding skilled workers for them could represent a key constraint, thus driving up costs and causing delays. In 2020, 83% of US contractors reported having difficulty finding skilled workers. During 2023, the construction workforce shortage is expected to exceed half a million workers.5 McKinsey estimates the BIL alone will spur the creation of 300,000 jobs across the construction value chain over the next few years. Further compounding difficulties is that one-quarter of the construction workforce in the US is aged 55 and higher and soon will retire. Newer workers filling the ranks are unlikely to soon match the skills and productivity of this cohort.
StaySafe and its Teaming Partners are offering training programs that support the growth of minority contractors by targeting infrastructure projects in the US. We are developing a comprehensive nationwide program to train employees and support minority and women-owned businesses by leveraging the skillsets of our Managers and Teaming Partners to help them win construction contracts.
