Why are you supporting the
think the greatest service the BX could render is to enhance the image of
the industry. If we can present the reality instead of the stereotype
of the construction worker and the construction company, our ability to
attract and retain top talent will be enhanced.
It is my hope the Builders Exchange
Foundation will be able to influence this and to facilitate our
recruitment of new entries into the construction industry. Specifically, with the age of the average construction worker being 47
years old, we need to attract young people to our industry to provide the
continuity that our companies require."
