The Art of Building People
Richard Walker, Constructor Magazine
The future of our industry is in a state of flux. From an increased demand for talent to more focus on cost competitiveness, disruptions are afoot. While analyzing your business model and tightening operating procedures are important, it is even more important to focus on one critical asset: your people.
The importance of prioritizing employee development cannot be overstated. It’s the competitive advantage too often overlooked.
Construction firms build things. But they construct much more than buildings: They also develop people. And if you help people on their journey, it pays dividends to them and the company over time.
The true value of any company is its people. Everything meaningful you do within your organization happens through people. This is true in any industry—it’s people who make the decisions that determine a company’s success or failure.
