Training and Labor Resources for the Home Building Industry
As housing construction growth continues, finding skilled workers to keep up with demand remains a challenge.
In response to concerns of a labor shortage in the building industry, BIAW has launched a workforce development program
to help members find employees ready to work and willing to learn. BIAW has partnered with organizations to promote labor pool
resources to members.
Consolidar Job Network
One partner is Consolidar Job Network, a non-profit co-founded by Mike Sotelo and Edgar Martinez, which focuses on providing
job-ready candidates for open positions in residential construction, among other industries. BIAW members receive a discount when they
sign up and can post openings to its job board.

The Employment Security Department, in partnership with Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Commerce, Washington State Military Council and local
chambers of commerce across the state, have created a statewide campaign, YesVets, to connect employers with veterans seeking jobs.
