Construction

Exposing your team to High-performance Behavior Training is what we do

Construction has suffered 2 major problems in the last year: suicide and low worker hiring/retention. In order to deal with this and everyday conflicts, managers must learn a set of skills never taught in school - SOFT SKILLS.

In contrast with hard skills that are necessary for physical duties, soft skills knowledge makes a big difference when managing teams and communicating effectively.

By developing these abilities, construction workers and their managers can boost productivity, improve project outcomes, and reduce risks at work. The capacity to negotiate using human relationships could be a game-changer in today's competitive construction industry, whether fulfilling tight schedules or keeping to budget.

Get the tools you need to do well in a world that is always changing and where safety, speed, and success are the most important things.

It’s always good to have a reality check, so let’s talk about numbers from national data:

DATA

  • 63% added online strategies (e.g., social media, targeted digital advertising) to connect better with younger applicants in the past year
  • Due to a lack of available qualified candidates, 68% of construction firms surveyed are struggling to fill open positions
  • Over 20% of construction workers are over 55 and are frequently the most skilled. Companies struggle to hire younger staff with equivalent abilities.
  • 1 out of 10 workers in the construction industry is a woman
  • According to the US Census, all Baby Boomers will be retired by 2030. This issue lies in the fact that this generation makes up a huge portion of workers in the construction industry.
  • 3 soft skills that the industries need are communication, leadership, and teamwork
  • National Soft Skills Association, which asserts that 85% of job success comes from having well‐developed MANAGERS AND SENIOR POSITIONS with well developed soft  skills, and only 15% of job success comes from technical skills and knowledge (hard skills)
