Right now, the workforce is facing a huge shortage of trades workers. SummitMedia Springfield is dedicated to bringing awareness to this shortage and helping fill these positions with qualified workers. The Springfield, MO economy is dependent on trade workers to continue to grow.
The number of unfilled trade positions is growing, and the number of qualified trades workers is not keeping up. It’s projected that manufacturers will lose over $100 million and that roughly 31 million positions will be vacant due to Boomers retiring. Exploding building material costs, pressure on distribution, and the depleted workforce are all factors leading to disastrous cross-roads.
We want to help emphasize why trades careers are a viable choice for anyone considering this career path. Advertising with SummitMedia Springfield, through all four of our radio stations (KSGF, KRVI, KSPW, and KTTS) and our digital advertising, you can help spread the word. We want to help you fill open positions, raise awareness on the importance of trades, and provide resources about trade careers.
We hope to inspire students to look into starting a career in trade. If you are a business in the Springfield, MO area we want to help you attract high school graduates and those looking for a new career. See how your company can be a part of this effort and sponsor our mission to Frame The Future Through Trades.
