Instructor talks about importance of diverse workforce

Instructor talks about the importance of a diverse workforce.

 

Construction and Remodeling instructor Allie Berenyi recently wrote an article for the national publication Fine Homebuilding that took a closer look at the importance of having a diverse workforce.


Berenyi says a more diverse industry will help close the skills gap, offer more qualified workers to builders and create much-needed social change.

 

She says the industry needs to evolve its thinking on its workforce, hiring people that reflect their community and then creating a workplace culture that works for everyone, from the employee about to retire to the newbie with a shiny new tool belt.
