NAWIC Benefits Spotlight
Time is that one resource that professionals struggle to manage effectively because once it’s spent, it’s gone, and you can’t create more of it. Time management can be significant challenge for a few reasons. We like to dig deeply to develop comprehensive understanding. In construction, we are often risk averse and that can translate into advocating for a level of precision and certainty that becomes counterproductive. Layered on top is the fact that we, as humans, are terrible estimators of time and our recall around tasks and time spent is pretty faulty. So, what are some strategies to improve personal and team time management?
How can we observe and celebrate #diversityday within the construction industry?

Here are some things to consider:

● Learn about another religion from someone within your company.

● Team build with a sport related to a different culture.

● Center social events around non-local or international food and music.

● Include historical information on special projects.

● Incorporate traditional celebrations from other cultures into your corporate calendar to bring awareness.

● Join our DE&I Committee!
