Workforce Development Mission Statement:

Attract, Develop, and Recognize the Finest Talent in Our Industry to Increase the Value of Marek and Improve the Retention of a Quality Workforce.

The Workforce Development Department provides support for a quality workforce by assessing the needs of the workforce, assessing the current workforce, provide standardized training, provide a career path for all its employees, recruiting, recognition of skills of current workforce and create a corporate training culture. Also creates a spirit of teamwork through positive support and coaching, and maintains the highest standards and reputation in the industry. 

What makes our Workforce Program unique is that we’ve broken down each job by task and created a process to train, validate skills, provide feedback, and provide credit for each task. Every employee moves through On the Job Training, Mentoring, hands-on labs, or classrooms at his or her own pace. Marek doesn’t just train our folks to be estimators, project managers, drywall foremen, and craftsmen. We train men and women to be leaders who also learn the skills it takes to fill those positions and move on to bigger and better things.

 


Construction Career Collaborative (C3)

The Construction Career Collaborative (C3) was created to address the needs of the future workforce. It is the cooperative effort of general contractors and subcontractors to take the steps necessary to build a sustainable workforce for the construction industry. It was agreed that the following three main principles should be enforced by every owner – hourly and overtime payment standards, safety training and craft training. This alliance of socially responsible owners, contractors and specialty contractors could positively affect the growth of a sustainable workforce. As the research indicates, “the development of a professional craft workforce through the partnership of owners, contractors and subcontractors will produce significant benefits to all stakeholders” and the public they serve.

We believe in preserving the culture of leadership and quality by passing down our knowledge, skills, and pride in our work to the next generation of craft professionals.
