Why I Build America – Ohio?
I Build America – Ohio (IBAOhio) is a movement to generate pride and respect for the construction industry and to recruit young people into the industry as a rewarding and valuable career. IBAOhio also recognizes the important role of leading construction companies in supporting our industry and its future. Here are several reasons that this movement is critical to your business:
● The State of Ohio predicts that by 2024, we will need to fill 23,820 positions in the construction industry.
● For every four people who leave the trades, only ONE new person is entering the workforce from apprenticeship programs.
● The construction industry is the nation’s largest single industry, employing more people and contributing more money to America’s bottom line than any other single industry.
We are changing the narrative around construction.The growth of our nation’s infrastructure relies on young people and their families viewing our industry as an honorable and rewarding career. Get involved today to help us change the way we build the future.
