A recent survey from construction management consultantFMI found that most organizations have increased their recruiting efforts at schools, colleges and universities, and have trained current employees to improve specific competencies.
Promoting internally, and providing internships and co-op programs also have increased, and are helping companies win the “talent war.”
The survey results represent responses from a cross section of the construction industry, including general contractors and subcontractors ranging in size from $50 million annual revenue to more than $500 million. More than half the respondents were either training or human resource directors, with the remainder being top management.
