Workforce Development

The future of home technology depends not only on the technology, but on the people who are designing and installing it. That’s why it’s our goal to create a framework for sustainable development of a skilled workforce by focusing on attracting new, young talent to our industry.

How?

  1. Raising awareness and generating interest among students and jobseekers
  2. Training, credentialing, and upskilling workers
  3. Connecting jobseekers with member companies
  4. Enhancing member capacity to recruit, develop, and retain talent
