The Coalition for Construction Careers, or C3, is a partnership of construction professionals in all sectors promoting a workforce with sustainable career opportunities.
As leaders in Charlotte’s construction industry, we know firsthand the changes it is facing and the challenges around talent recruitment and retention. Though many companies are trying to tackle these challenges singlehandedly, no single organization can do this work alone. We must work across construction organizations and with community partners to develop solutions to the problems the industry is facing. That’s why we formed the Coalition for Construction Careers (C3).
This partnership is a coalition of construction professionals in the Charlotte area working together to attract and retain employees within the industry. We will serve as the voice of Charlotte’s construction sector, pooling resources and developing a talent pipeline of skilled workers to close labor shortage gaps. With representation from a variety of construction companies including general contractors, electrical contractors, education and training providers, and workforce development partners, this partnership is truly a collaborative effort. Through our C3 initiative, our goals include rebranding and marketing the career pathways available to attract young jobseekers and students to work in the construction industry.
