American Baby Boomers are retiring in record numbers and are often looking to simplify their living arrangements. With the number of Americans over 65 years expected to more than double to 88.5 million by 2050, it’s easy to see that assisted living construction is in high demand. Even though a significant portion of the aging population prefers to remain in their own homes, there are also those who need more specialized living arrangements that are typically provided by senior living communities, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities.There are also those seniors who just wish to downsize from their current homes and opt for something a little more flexible.
Now is a critical time in the construction industry – the job shortage continues to hinder growth, and companies are forced to look very carefully at what they can do to attract and retain talent. Companies need to take a strategic and innovative approach to recruiting, staffing, and retention—focusing on how to make their company attractive from a variety of perspectives.
Partnering with an executive recruiter can make all the difference when it comes to your hiring strategy. It can be very difficult for companies to fill their high-demand positions if they approach the hiring process alone.
