The asphalt materials and construction communities are constantly trying to attract workers who will be productive and positively engaged in their career. TRB is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern that will present case studies demonstrating innovative ways that the construction community is fulfilling demand for workers. A vital part of this workforce demand will need to be filled by personnel who have not been traditionally interested in road materials or construction. Thus, there will be a need to make a career in asphalt materials and road building attractive to young adults who are on the precipice of entering the workforce. Young adults with a high school diploma, new graduates of a trade or technical program, or those with a college degree in math, accounting, science, or engineering.will all be important to the future of the construction industry. Hear aboutnew initiatives going on across the U.S. aimed at attracting individuals that meet not just the traditional industry needs, but also the growing demand for individuals skilled in technology, accounting, environmental compliance, and worker health and safety.
This webinar is organized by the Standing Committee on Critical Issues and Emerging Technologies in Asphalt.
