This year, workforce development was a top priority for HBA of Greater Tulsa President Brandon Jackson as the shortage of skilled workers across the entire spectrum of the home building industry is a major problem for builders and consumers. Efforts led by John Madden and Ken Klein have established professional and organizational connections with our local school districts, HBI Job Corps, Tulsa Technology Center, OSUIT in Okmulgee, and OSU Construction Management Technology in Stillwater.
Their efforts along with other others have resulted in building relationships with educators who want to direct their students toward meaningful careers in the home building industry.
Next month, several HBI Carpentry students will be graduating from the Tulsa Job Corps program and ready to hit the job market. If you or your company are interested in reviewing their resumes or scheduling an interview, please contact Stacey Bayles at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (918) 663-5820.
