Helping Contractors Grow Profitably

The Talent Challenge In the Construction Industry

Six Strategies to Help, Acquire, Retain, and Develop Construction Professionals.

The construction industry is facing talent challenges far different than any that it has faced in the past. Where additional labor was once the cure all to productivity and bandwidth issues, labor (by form of sheer quantity) is no longer able to effectively solve the problems that face modern contractors.

As contractors are forced to change the way they plan and deliver projects, teams are being forced to adapt to new, lesser developed skill sets. All of this is occuring during a massive shift in both workforce demographics and culture. The construction industry is facing change and challenges from multiple fronts and they all link back to talent.

Workshop Highlights

  • An overview of the talent shortage and where critical gaps will form within levels of an organization.
  • Learn about the value of positioning your company to become a talent magnet.
  • Discuss how to build a culture and processes that effectively integrate a diverse team.

The shortage of talent in the construction industry will be 3X worse by 2020.  Leverage our experiences from across the industry to understand the root causes of the problem, how to quantify the impact to your business and the six critical strategies for sustainable growth.  Learn what other contractors, other industries and other organizations have been doing for the last 20 years to accelerate talent development.
