A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Reshaping the Industry

Three actions are necessary to build a thriving, profitable and durable construction industry:

  • Acceptance.  Recognize current situations and challenges and accept they are real.
  • Leadership.  Embrace core values and principles as innovators and leaders.
  • Solutions.  Collaborate among owners, contractors and workforce for solutions.
What challenges is the construction industry facing?  What principles, like sustainable value and social responsibility, should industry leaders embrace?  Where will the solutions come from?
Ballentine offers some encouragement and advice for those who are afraid that they might not have what it takes to become leaders in their careers and in their lives.
