Using Humanity to Propel Construction

Putting people first in a business is bringing humanity back into the construction industry. Something that has not been done much in the past is communicating equally among all teams. Over the years, negative habits have developed in terms of a hierarchy of personnel. There was the boss at the top of the ladder, people such as engineers on the middle rungs, and then there were the field workers at the bottom of the ladder, with everything falling on their heads.

Dynamic vs. Static Champion

The construction industry has been forced into digital transformation over the past nine months at a more rapid pace, so managers are now embracing remote workflows and allowing people to do what they do and relying on trades workers to give the proper input for jobs. Many people in the trades hope it stays that way after the industry returns to “normal.”
