The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is conducting research to better understand the workforce skills needed for the proper operation and maintenance of high-performance buildings. As more sophisticated technology and management practice are implemented in commercial buildings, workforce skills must keep pace. These developments impact people working in a variety of positions including on-site building engineers, operations staff, service contractors, equipment installers, code officials, and others. Concerns over workforce skills gaps are exacerbated by an emerging consensus across many industry channels that there is a shortage of workers in the buildings workforce that will only get worse as the current workforce ages and many people approach retirement.
ACEEE would like to invite you to take a short survey to help with this research. The survey results will be used to recommend efforts to address any skills gaps and attract new workers to the workforce.
The survey takes 8-10 minutes to complete and you can start the survey by clicking here . As an incentive for participation, ACEEE is offering a chance to win one of five $50 gift cards.
