The Next Generation of Building Engineers at BOMA International

1. Recruiting the Next Generation of Building Engineers – FULL HOUSE STANDING ROOM ONLY

Property Management is finding it more difficult to hire technical talent such as building engineers and in recent years the time required to fill these jobs has caused service disruptions. The commercial real estate industry has a problem with the current workforce. It is estimated by some BOMA sources that 55% of building engineers will retire within the next 10 years. Building engineers are responsible for the operation and preservation of the real estate asset as well as delivering tenants a comfortable environment. Without adequate staff a building can cost more to operate and experience service failures.

The panel included Gabriel Eckhart, Executive Director of BOMA Georgia and co-author of “From Insight to Action: Six New Ways to Think, Lead, and Achieve,” Lubie Martin, Regional Director of Operations at Columbia Property Trust, Dawn R. Short, Sr. HR Business Partner at Able Services, and Mark Kelly, President of Able Services.
