Building A Stronger Workforce: An AGC of NH Guide to Recruiting Workers in the Construction Industry
As one of New Hampshire's major economic drivers, the construction industry has the potential to provide a myriad of job opportunities to skilled workers. The challenge facing most firms today is figuring out how to attract, recruit, and retain valuable employees in all areas across the industry.

AGC of NH recognizes the importance of maintaining a sustainable workforce, and as such we've compiled this guide to help employers in the industry determine their workforce needs and reach out to the proper audiences. In AGC of NH's Guide to Recruiting Workers in the Construction Industry, firms will find educational resources, contact information, and tips for connecting with potential workers.

NHES Job Portal Aims to Assist Employers and Job Seekers
In the second half of the NH Employment Security update delivered to members of AGC of NH on March 30th, Deputy Commissioner Richard Lavers covered programs available to both NH employers and job seekers. He provided information on multiple programs aimed at assisting employers and job seekers in making an employment connection.

One of the highlighted programs was the job portal. NHES has created a new job portal to make it easier for employers to communicate job openings and for job seekers to find jobs. They currently have just under 500 employers with positions listed on the portal, 2,200 job openings, and 8,750 job seeker inquiries to employers. Employers only need to fill out a spreadsheet and send it to the Deputy Commissioner at richard.j.lavers@nhes.gov for inclusion on the new job portal. Once the job has been filled, just let NHES know, and they will remove the job posting.
