This study outlines how to prioritize in-house talent development through apprenticeships, formalized upskilling, and pre-apprenticeship programs. Examine a series of detailed case studies for an in-depth overview of talent development programs within higher education facilities management.

Senior facilities leaders are struggling to recruit and develop skilled tradespeople. While retention tends to be strong once an employee joins, many facilities departments are seeing a growing number of vacancies as the number of new workers entering the trades declines—in the U.S., there is currently only one new person entering the skilled trades for every five who retire.

This means fewer campuses can rely on the current pool of skilled tradespeople to fill every role. Instead, Facilities must create in-house skilled trades development programs.
