Construction companies in the Fayetteville, North Carolina area will need to recruit 895 blue-collar workers on top of the normal pace of hiring in 2022 to meet the demands of the current building market. These statistics are based on forecasts from Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC), an association comprised primarily of U.S. firms that work in industrial and commercial construction sectors.

"The construction industry desperately needs qualified, skilled craft professionals to build America," said Michael Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. "The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed in November and stimulus from COVID-19 relief will pump billions in new spending into our nation's most critical infrastructure, and qualified craft professionals are essential to efficiently modernize roads, bridges, energy production, and other projects across the country. More regulations and less worker freedom make it harder to fill these jobs."

The construction industry's appetite for new hires in the Fayetteville area will continue into 2023, according to ABC. It is expected that during that year,  an additional 813 blue-collar workers in addition to the normal pace of hiring.

Recruitment Advertising In Fayetteville: Best Way To Reach Candidates

Jan 7, 2022 5:04:37 PM / by Larry Julius

There are 8690 small businesses in the Fayetteville, North Carolina Metro Area, according to the US Census Bureau. Based on projections from the National Federation of Independent Business Owners (NFIB), nearly half of these companies have job openings they cannot fill.

As a result of the acute labor shortage, says the NFIB, 29% of small business owners rank the quality of labor as the most important problem they face. A year ago, only 21% said finding workers was their biggest issue.

The labor crunch in the Fayetteville area is being driven, in big part, by a record-high number of employees voluntarily quitting their jobs. Just last month, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4.5 million employees across the country left their current place of employment.

According to the Wall Street Journal, those who are not currently working say they are in no hurry to return to the workforce. The lack of urgency stems from five primary reasons:

  • 29% say they don't need to work right now because their spouse is employed
  • 28% say they cannot return to work because of care responsibilities at home
  • 25% say they don't need to return to work because they have a financial cushion
  • 20% say they are fearful of returning to work because of COVID-19
  • 5% say they do not need to return because of current unemployment benefits

There seems to be little chance that these resigned workers can be lured back into the labor force. Therefore, to fill open jobs, local business owners will need to focus their efforts towards recruiting among Fayetteville's "passive" job candidates.
