SUGAR LAND, Texas, March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Industrial Info is launching its 2017 North American Labor Survey, in which project owners, contractors and labor providers provide input on the status of U.S. and Canadian craft labor.
Tony Salemme, Industrial Info's Vice President - Craft Labor Group, said, "This labor survey is a representation of actual owners', contractors' and labor providers' opinions concerning shortages or full employment of skilled crafts, and project managers/supervisors in the private, process construction markets only." This voluntary survey does not represent Industrial Info's proprietary Labor Forecast tool nor does it replace it. This is a general survey with insights into the marketplaces participants voluntarily offering general opinions.
This year's survey is expected to include more than 1,000 participants. The survey questionnaire shouldn't take more than eight minutes to complete on average, Salemme added.
Industrial Info will offer the survey results and a summary report for free exclusively to the survey participants, which in turn will give them a better view as to what skilled crafts are experiencing shortages, Salemme said.
"The summary will be able to express where 'travelers' will be needed, and to what degree, by market region of North America, and by electrical, mechanical, soft crafts and project manager positions," Salemme continued. "The summary will also accumulate these opinions and put them into a table that will reflect the current labor risk in today's marketplace."
Last year's survey results were surprising because labor issues "were more exacerbated than people thought, and they were more prevalent across North America," Salemme said.
The survey results are expected to be made available by late spring or early summer.
