Building the Workforce
IEC strongly believes in building a strong workforce that can adapt to changing economic times and bolster the electrical contracting industry. In this aim, IEC reaches out to various audiences to create relationships and provide education about the electrical industry.
IEC proudly works with various organizations, such as Troops to Trades to help veterans ease the transition into the workforce. To find out more about how IEC can support veterans in transitioning into the industry, click here.
The youth of today is the livelihood of tomorrow’s electrical industry. It is crucial that today's children not only take an interest in sciences but also realize all the benefits of learning a trade. In an effort to keep youth engaged in these subjects, IEC is actively involved in two youth programs: 4-H and SkillsUSA. Additionally, many chapters also have their own youth development organizations in which they volunteer.
