Construction Firms Foresee More Hiring in 2015

January 21, 2015

The overwhelming majority of construction firms anticipate adding new employees in 2015, according to a survey conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

The survey appears in the AGC report Ready to Hire Again: The 2015 Construction Industry Hiring and Business Outlook, based on responses from over 900 construction firms in 48 states and the District of Columbia.  

 The 80% of firms saying they plan to add jobs is significantly higher than in 2014, when 57% answered “Yes” to that question.

“Contractors are extremely optimistic about the outlook for 2015,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “Indeed, if their predictions prove true, industry employment could expand this year by the most in a decade.”

One qualification worth noting: 90% of the firms who said they planned to hire new employees said they anticipated growing by one-quarter or less.
