BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIG

Let’s face it… it’s hard to find good help. And with the design and construction industry experiencing unprecedented labor shortages, which is driving up costs and delaying jobs, now is the perfect time to introduce the Hub & Spoke Design Center – an initiative to overcome the stigma of the industry, illustrate the possibilities, and grow awareness around career paths and opportunities with hands-on experiential learning.

We want to develop the nation’s skilled workforce and build a successful future for all. That’s why we have created Hub & Spoke as the place for people of the growth mindset who want to be part of something great. Something bigger. It’s a place where innovators, creatives, and entrepreneurs – those looking to create and advance their skills and mindset – will be challenged to learn and grow.
It’s a place where professionals like YOU can provide students and adults with a place to explore trades as a rewarding career. It’s a place where students and adults – through experiential learning – will develop work-ready and employability skills as well as post-secondary readiness experience.

Ways YOU Can Partner With Us

Hub & Spoke’s workforce institute is a non-pro t 501 (c) (3) organization that works with companies, governments, schools, the community, nonprofits and other organizations to address the increasing need for skilled trade workers. Our partners will contribute more than money. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more will help build a strong base of tomorrow’s trade leaders.

LABOR SHORTAGE STATS

There is currently a shortage of workers in construction skilled trades. *

The gap has widened over the past 5 years...

and it's expected to worsen in the coming years

BLS predicts an additional 200,000 construction trade job openings each year to 2026, due to labor force exits (retirements, etc.)

Because of labor shortages during 2018, larger portions of builders have had to:
  • TURN DOWN PROJECTS (40%)
  • ACCEPT NEW ORDERS AT A SLOWER RATE (32%)
  • LOSE OR CANCEL SALES (26%)

Less Labor Supply Means Rising Costs And Job Delays.

* Carpenters (Rough and Finished), Electricians, Excavators, Framing crews, Roofers, Plumbers, Bricklayers/Masons and Painters

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING


THE TOP CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY ASSOCIATIONS REPORT THAT THERE IS CURRENTLY A SHORTAGE OF WORKERS IN SKILLED TRADES, WHICH COULD HAVE DIRE CONSEQUENCES.


MEDIA OUTLETS ARE ALSO DOCUMENTING THE PROBLEM AND EXPLORING THE CAUSES AND POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS.
