Rosemont, Ill.As the economy prepares to rebound, the National Roofing Contractors Association has launched a workforce recruitment webpage at nrca.net/workforce-recruitment to help address the anticipated workforce shortage. The U.S. is facing record unemployment, and the roofing industry must position itself as an essential industry that offers rewarding careers as it also adapts to the influx of Millennial and Generation Z workers.
The webpage contains tools and resources designed to help NRCA members recruit, engage, onboard and train entry-level and transitioning employees to the roofing industry. The webpage showcases the opportunities to work, earn, learn and advance in the roofing industry; skilled training and certification opportunities; safety and technological advances; earnings potential; and the multifaceted career opportunities available across all sectors of the industry.
Employers also can access descriptions and links to other organizations NRCA works with to advance the roofing industry’s workforce, including the Association for Career & Technical Education;® Department of Veterans Affairs; National Center for Construction Education and Research; and SkillsUSA.®
Since 1886, the National Roofing Contractors Association has been the home for generations of entrepreneurial craftsmen and enterprises who shelter and protect America's families and businesses and each other. Our vision is the recognition of our members as professionals and to unite the industry to that purpose. NRCA is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy. It represents all segments of the roofing industry, including contractors; manufacturers; distributors; architects; consultants; engineers; building owners; and city, state and government agencies.
