It’s been a turbulent change, to say the least, since COVID compounded the many day-to-day challenges of construction contractors. The silver lining is that everyone must now dig deep to bring out their own entrepreneurial qualities.
While there are many big challenges, help is available for:
- Challenges in hiring skilled labour
- Workforce training challenges
- Business succession challenges
- Management challenges during COVID
- Challenges of meeting the demand
- Procurement challenges
That makes for quite a few hurdles in the current industry’s landscape.
As if this wasn’t enough, construction companies are encouraged to go digital: to be more profitable, more efficient, and better organized.
Never have planning and employee mobilization been more important in order to stay focused on priorities! At the same time, we need to remember to keep improving so that we can keep our employees happy.
Contractors are not alone! Professional associations are here to help you. And solidarity, in these times, is quite important.
