Recorded On: 07/09/2020
As the baby boomer generation continues to enter retirement, the CRE industry is experiencing a shortage of skilled workers and difficulties recruiting new talent into the construction and buildings operations fields. While many industry practitioners are working to address the skills gap and attract talent through targeted workforce initiatives, some organizations are going a step further by specifically integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into their workforce development efforts. In this session, national industry leaders within the Department of Energy's Better Buildings program will discuss successful entry and skills advancement efforts that are both improving their businesses and the buildings and communities around them.
