Get involved in 2019 Construction Appreciation Week with resources from I Build America – Ohio
The construction industry is one of the nation’s largest industries, employing millions of people and contributing significantly to America’s bottom line. And with the need for new schools, hospitals, housing, and other commercial buildings increasing, we are going to need more and more quality workers to get all of the work done. I Build America – Ohio is on a mission to build the construction workforce and signal to companies, organizations, lawmakers, current employees, and prospective employees that we are devoted to the future of our industry. We are joining together hundreds of employers who represent all aspects of skilled labor and construction work to form one unified voice to share a message: careers in construction offer great opportunities for great people.
Construction Appreciation Week will be celebrated September 16-20, 2019, to acknowledge and thank the more than 11 million hardworking men and women in the industry who contribute to the development of our infrastructure, facilities, products, and services. We are proud of these professionals who are Building America Together.
Founded in 2018, Construction Appreciation Week brings together the entire industry, regardless of company size or specialty, and shows appreciation for the work that they do every day. It touches people at all levels, from students thinking about joining the industry to current professionals to company leadership.
Construction Appreciation Week is sponsored by I Build America, a national movement focused on building pride in the construction industry, educating the public on the value of construction, and recruiting the next generation of construction professionals. I Build America was founded in 2016 by HCSS CEO Mike Rydin to tell the story of American construction workers.
