Inspire Your Team to Stay Longer in the Construction Industry
The Great Resignation has resulted in a mass exodus of employees from the workforce. As of 2022, the construction industry needed to fill 650,000 jobs just to keep up with the backlog. On top of that, Construction Exec found that less than 20% of Gen Z said they would even entertain a job in construction.
The labor shortage in the industry has resulted in increased workloads for existing employees, leading to further dissatisfaction. Furthermore, the pandemic has prompted individuals to reassess their career choices and seek more stable and fulfilling opportunities.
Employers need to rethink how they engage with workers to create the best possible employee experience and inspire team members to stay longer.
