The commercial construction industry is an exciting field to work in and offers many rewards to those who pursue this career path. Yet, now is a critical time in the industry – the labor shortage continues to hinder the trade, and companies are forced to look very carefully at what they can do to attract and retain talent.
A Hiring Strategy that Works
Commercial construction companies must take a strategic and innovative approach to recruiting, staffing, and retention—focusing on how to make their company attractive from a variety of perspectives.
Partnering with an executive recruiter can make all the difference when it comes to your hiring strategy. It can be very difficult for companies to fill their high-demand positions if they approach the hiring process alone.
The Birmingham Group focuses exclusively on the construction industry, and has since 1967. The company’s CEO, Brian Binke took over the firm in 1995 and since that time, he has personally placed in excess of 800 construction managers with general contractors, with revenue ranging from $10 million dollars to the largest ENR 400 companies in the industry.
