Construction Recruiting Requires a Strategic Approach

Over the years, construction has suffered more from the ups and downs of the economy than many other industries—most recently, barely recovered from setbacks of the Great Recession when the pandemic hit. Currently, there’s a significant shortage of affordable, skilled workers at nearly every level, made worse with retiring Baby Boomers. This tightening of the already tight talent market means developing innovative, strategic recruitment approaches. This has never been more critical than now.

Not every construction company can be a Bechtel, which is on nearly every list of the best companies in the industry. Bechtel can recruit based on a worldwide reputation for opportunity, growth, and exciting projects with purpose. If that’s not you, let us tell you about the many effective ways that all construction companies can successfully compete for the best people.

Recruitment Is a Sales Process

Your Partner for Results

Process chart

Based on our proven process, we’ll help you develop strategies that reflect the specific interests and concerns of construction industry talent. For example:

Developing a pipeline of qualified candidates so you have a choice of “right” people for every role before your new projects start.

Prioritizing safety and communicating your concern for employee health and wellbeing in an industry where workplace hazards can be a normal part of the job.

Establishing a people-first mindset and incorporating things like flexibility, inclusion, and opportunity into your culture where possible, replacing the norm of long hours and harsh conditions.

Incorporate cutting-edge technologies in your recruiting practices and in your culture to attract younger generations.
