Collaboration in Construction Industry

The Greater Memphis Chamber’s inaugural Employer Collaborative, We Build 901, is employer led and focuses on building a talent pipeline for careers within the construction industry.  Championed by Andy Davis and John Curran from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the We Build 901 Construction Collaborative comprised of more than 30-plus company owners, general contractors, and sub-contractors who are struggling to recruit talent for good-paying jobs in Memphis.

To build and sustain a strong pipeline of talent to support the number of new projects slated for our community, the Collaborative is will:
  • Increase the visibility of opportunities in the construction trades
  • Streamline access to training and jobs though clear pathways
  • Heightened awareness of the true income potential from entry-level to a skilled tradesman to management to ownership.

About Talent Pipeline Management

Using the US Chamber of Commerce’s Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) curriculum, the Chamber is working with employers to close the skills gap using an innovative national demand-driven approach. Through extending lessons learned from innovations in supply chain management, TPM is a call for employers to play a new and expanded leadership role as “end-customers” of education and workforce partnerships.

By using TPM processes as a resource, the We Build 901 Construction Collaborative aims to increase skilled workers focusing on two areas. The first is to focus on the short-term goal which is to place individuals in the industry now and the long term focuses on developing and aligning clear pathways to construction trade.
