According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry lost 22,000 jobs during the month of June. Some might assume this means that recruiting an adequate workforce is no longer a burning issue, but we know that despite the current conditions, there will be a shortage of construction workers by 2018 especially in the mid-level jobs. My company recently completed the team building exercise of describing our ideal workforce for 2015. It turns out that we have some work to do. We are a commercial subcontractor and live and die by the talents and efforts of our supervisors, foremen, lead men, and journeymen. In our exercise, we described each job title and how they would demonstrate leadership in every area of focus: productivity, safety, quality, company culture, and workforce development (training and developing future talent).
