A recent study conducted by Associated General Contractors of America reported that 80% of construction companies are facing a severe skilled labor shortage. Can you relate?

After all, it doesn't matter how many potential deals you close – if you can't get the job installed, you can't increase revenue. Many are finding new ways to increase efficiency and productivity including the use of specialized technology, increasing pay, and recruiting young workers.
