Managing Change in Large Construction Companies
Simon Wallace | 18th March 2014
Managing change in large construction companies is always on the agenda, at the moment this means managing growth rather than decline. The construction sectors of the UK and the UAE are reported to be growing at the fastest rate since 2007, with increases in output and employment as a result. This presents a different but not new challenge to construction companies hoping to attract and retain the best talent, so as to facilitate and take full advantage of this period of growth.
I back those clients that look very closely at employee marketing strategy and give attention to satisfying the needs of the modern employee as well as their own. Construction companies working on employee recruitment and retention communication to confirm exactly why people should join them, and what people should expect when they get there, will win the war for talent. This communication should include a roadmap for each employee, a job description with clear targets that makes individual contribution clear, and a career development path that will be available to them should they consistently over deliver.
Create a vision for change that excites available talent. Great organisations secure great employees get great leaders achieve great results.
