Education / Training
I would often hear managers and leaders say that it’s all about attitude and that, for those team members who might be struggling or not delivering as expected, if they only had a better attitude then their results would improve. I could not disagree more, and I had to learn it the hard way. Attitude can be tricky and is subjective. You might describe it differently than I do, or your colleague, or your manager. What exactly is attitude? As construction professionals, we might be described as professional problem solvers. That was a term of honor to me, but my attitude that went along with it was not always helpful.
Your whole organization benefits from visibility into your workforce planning
A better understanding of your team’s capacity can certainly help inform project bidding and eliminate the idle time between projects, but it requires that everyone has the information they need to make the best decisions for your people.

Industry Update
HITT Contracting, based in Falls Church, Virginia, is distributing $4 million to staff on a sliding scale, starting with bonuses of $1,000 and reaching as high as $10,000, according to HITT Co-President Jeremy Bardin. About 60% of the company's 1,300 employees received the bonuses, Bardin told Construction Dive.

Research so far suggests that openness is especially characteristic of younger workers. Survey data published in August by Adobe show more than half of Generation Z employee respondents said they planned to pursue new jobs in 2021, while 59% of this contingent also ranked lowest in job satisfaction among generational groups.

The trouble is, when these workers do seek to pursue new avenues, they are not very likely to put construction in their sights.
