New construction industry recruits drawn from historically disadvantaged groups represent a rich talent pool that can help alleviate the industry’s workforce shortage and — with time, experience and training — add to the ranks of skilled trades, professionals and leaders.
But such recruits may face atypical challenges adjusting, whether in the office or the field. Employers need to be aware that their new hires may have lacked advisors with experience in similar work settings, or in common business practices — let alone construction specific ones.
This webinar will bring tips from experts to help employers meet their new recruits coming from outside the usual ranks and ensure that the traps of employee dissatisfaction and frustration are avoided. Attendees will also learn how to hire, retain and support recruits from disadvantaged populations, for everyone’s success.
