Workforce Development

We want to THANK everyone for a SUCCESSFUL first annual Construction Week!  The purpose of Construction Week was to increase the awareness and dialogue about the great career opportunities available in our industry.  After the hundreds of posts on social media, articles published, schools visited and television interviews done, I think it is safe to say that we successfully made many more members of our communities aware of what the construction industry has to offer!

The numbers below are some figures from just the MBI Facebook account.  These do not include all of the reach that was made through other companies and individuals posting about Construction Week.  

  • 187,680 – Reach (the number of people our posts reached during Construction Week)
  • 7,707 – Engagements (the number of times people engaged in our posts during Construction Week through likes, comments, shares, etc.)
  • 496 – Video Views

We have put together a photo gallery on the MBI website of the many posts and photos that were done during Construction Week by MBI and a multitude of companies and individuals connected to the construction industry.  You can view the gallery by following this link –

Thank you again, and remember, Construction Week is more than a week-long event, it is a year-round commitment to raise awareness of the vast opportunities available in the construction industry.

The 2017 Construction Week will be celebrated October 2 - 6, 2017!
