With a growing need for construction workers, the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) On-the-Job Training program provides opportunity for eligible contractors to train and develop construction workers, particularly women, minorities and other disadvantaged individuals.
Michigan Construction frequently works with the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) and their Director of Workforce Development, Ken Bertolini to help inform, advance and connect individuals to the opportunities that our industry has to offer. We also work together in collaboration with other industry on programs including the Construction Science Expo, Michigan Construction Career Days, the Detroit Workforce of the Future.
Ken wrote a fantastic article about the importance of soft skills training for employers in the last issue of the MITA's Cross-Section Magazine this January 2019 that we wanted to share. Check it out!
