BirdDogHR Announces Partnership with Master Builders of Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa – September 2, 2015 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries today announced that it is now an affinity program provider for the Master Builders of Iowa (MBI). MBI improves the quality of construction in Iowa as it offers comprehensive business services to contractors within the state. As an affinity partner, BirdDogHR will provide MBI members with exclusive benefits related to the BirdDogHR talent management solution and services.

The construction industry is facing multiple opportunities and challenges in 2015 and beyond. According to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the association’s 2014 Construction Industry Hiring and Business Outlook Report, two-thirds of construction firms report they are having trouble finding qualified workers to fill positions. This shortage adversely impacts contractors as they struggle to serve clients, experience reduced competitiveness and deal with increased employee turnover. As an affinity program provider to MBI, BirdDogHR brings an automated talent management solution to MBI members to simplify and automate employee recruiting and retention.

“With construction growth and momentum continuing to rise, our members require a solid workforce development strategy,” said Chad Kleppe, President of the Master Builders of Iowa. “As we searched for a business to partner with BirdDogHR was the natural choice. BirdDogHR combines talent management process expertise with construction industry know-how. The result is a complete talent management solution that can benefit organizations of all sizes.”

“As an award-winning chapter, Master Builders of Iowa is ahead of the rest of the country in offering leadership and workforce development programs to its membership,” said Todd Skokan, President and CEO of BirdDogHR. “We are proud to partner with them to bring comprehensive talent management solutions to their members.”
