About the Awards Program
The Greater Baton Rouge Industry Alliance, Inc. (GBRIA) Craft Workforce Development Awards acts as both an awards and benchmarking program. This program was developed in 2007 through a joint effort of GBRIA’s Contractor Workforce Development Committee, Board of Directors and local contractors. The program has been designed to promote best practices to improve the skills and retention of craft personnel in the region and to recognize and reward contractors, member plants, schools, educators, and other individuals who contribute to recruitment, assessment, training, career path education and retention efforts. GBRIA’s Craft Workforce Development Awards offers awards for the following groups: General Construction & Maintenance; Civil and Structural Contractors; Specialty Trade Hard Craft; Specialty Trade Soft Craft; Technical Support; Other Specialty Contractors; High Schools and Individual Champions. These awards support one of GBRIA’s strategic objectives to ensure access to a competitive and skilled company & contract workforce.
