Helping Contractors Grow Profitably

Talent Acquisition for Contractors

Turn your company into a talent magnet and never again let talent constrain your growth. This is a lot easier said than done, especially when today’s tight labor market combined with more complex project delivery that demands a different set of skills is taken into consideration. Even so, reaching this goal is absolutely doable! Positioning yourself as the contractor of choice for a career in construction is the first step, and is a critical component of your overall talent development strategy. 

This enhanced and expanded two-hour class is designed for owners, executives, recruiters, and the marketing teams of growing contractors. The three facilitators of this class will provide a comprehensive view of the construction talent market, how it has changed and where it is heading. They will answer the most common questions that contractors have asked and will provide solid examples of what is working and what is not. 

Align your team with proven strategies and tactics for attracting the best talent, and learn how to turn your company into a talent magnet.  This class is a discussion format, with plenty of time for questions from the audience.

  • What are Millennials looking for in the construction industry?
  • Why company culture matters so much during recruiting
  • Marketing tactics for attracting the best talent to your company
  • How your growth plan can help or hurt your ability to recruit

Leverage the experiences of three facilitators during this interactive two-hour workshop and improve your ability to attract the best talent to your team. Learn how to position your company, your culture, your projects, your area, and the career opportunities available to attract the best talent. Connect your ability to attract great candidates to how to sell them on your team, interview rigorously to ensure they are truly a great fit, and onboard them effectively.    


This class is designed for Owners, Executives, Key Managers, Recruiters, the Marketing Team and anyone else who is involved in helping attract the best talent for your company.
