Positive psychologist Tal Ben-Shahar coined the term arrival fallacy. According to Ben-Shahar, “Arrival fallacy is this illusion that once we make it, once we attain our goal or reach our destination, we will reach lasting happiness.” If you think about your own career or perhaps someone you work with, have you noticed a time when all the hard work and long hours expended to reach a particular goal had little impact on the long-term demeanor?

NAWIC Benefits Spotlight
The SRC Summit has extended a special invitation to NAWIC members. We wanted to send you an invite to this annual conference started back in 2013 by April Hall.  Her goal has been to bring more women in the roofing & construction industry together for learning, networking and to support one another. 
Investing in the right HR technology solutions can automate the most time-consuming tasks. Because tasks are automated, there is little to no room for human error, the work is not only faster but more accurate.  
The construction industry has historically been male-dominated, with women constituting less than 10% of the workforce. However, the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is ushering in a transformative shift that is bridging the gender gap and providing a more inclusive and progressive future for women in construction.
