Building and Facilities Maintenance Workers
Through a collaboration with the California Community Colleges Energy, Construction, and Utilities (ECU) Sector and the University of California San Diego Extension, the Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research (COE) conducted a survey of businesses that employ building and facilities maintenance (BFM) workers.
The survey focused on three regions across California: the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley/Mother Lode, and the South Central Coast.
Using survey results, this study examines technical and soft skills, educational attainment, work experience, and certifications that are of most value to employers hiring BFM workers. This study also provides insights into the workforce challenges and hiring difficulties that employers are encountering.
