LCPtracker, an online service providing prevailing wage and construction site compliance, has announced a partnership with Associated General Contractors (AGC) of California to establish Build California, a new workforce development initiative which aims to boost the appeal of construction careers and “inspire, engage, and activate” the future construction workforce in the state.
As part of this partnership, Build California is implementing the company’s new collaborative software tool, Workforce Manager, which helps connect all organizations that contribute to an individual’s professional development, the company says in a statement. The application also allows for a more seamless transition into these jobs and provides an effective way to measure the return on workforce investments,
“Having LCPtracker as a founding partner of Build California is invaluable to achieving our objectives,” said Erin Volk, vice-president, workforce and community development, and executive director of the AGC Construction Education Foundation. “Workforce development is such a critical matter for the future of the construction industry. Managing it effectively will require an efficient way to record progress and make it visible to every stakeholder. Organizations may have struggled with this in the past, but they don’t need to anymore.’
