Commercial and corporate real estate professionals need to prepare for the recruitment of the next generation of building engineers. In a nationwide survey of over 1,000 human resources managers, 86% reported that they find it challenging to find and hire technical talent and 75% think the time required to fill roles has increased in the past three years. More than half (53%) hired people who weren’t exactly qualified based on skill and ability because they needed to fill the position immediately. The result: 83% believe it has hurt their business and or increased team tension and employee burnout. Join this panel of industry thought leaders for a discussion of steps you can take to find the right candidates and create a company culture that encourage the next generation of engineers to choose your company.
