SC&RF Releases Workforce Research Report; Free to Members
- After two years of comprehensive research and analysis, the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Foundation (SC&RF) has published a highly anticipated research report: “State of the Workforce in the Crane, Rigging and Specialized Transport Industry.”
The paper was designed to examine and identify a range of workforce issues within the construction and specialized transportation sectors. SC&RA members can access the report for free here
, while non-members may purchase the report.
“Our mission was to put out the definitive paper on workforce in our industry – data, employee dynamics, wages, recruitment/retention – and make it a living document that will be renewed annually to account for changes in that data,” said Geoff Davis, CEO at Unified Logistics, as well as architect of the survey and SC&RF president at the time of its development. “There is no proprietary data being exposed – we protected everyone’s confidentiality – so this data doesn’t give anyone a competitive advantage,” he confirmed. Davis also indicated plans to drill down on regionality. “So, we’re looking to provide even more context, and utilize the ability to track market changes, technology and workforce changes over time – in order to create relevant time series data.”
The 2023 Workforce survey will go out to SC&RA members in September with an anticipated 2024 State of the Workforce Study to be released in the summer of 2024. For more information, contact SC&R Foundation Director Jackie Roskos.
