Take on the Construction Labor Shortage

Combat the construction labor shortage and place your organization on the road to success.

What Caused the Construction Labor Shortage?

According to constructiondive.com, there is a one to five ratio—for every five construction employees who leave or quit the industry, one new employee will enter the industry. To overcome the labor shortage, we must understand the root of the problem.

Technological Advances

Technological advancements are adopted by employees who learn new digital technology in school-prior to entering the job force. Potential employees who are just entering the workforce will seek jobs that adapt to what they have learned – usually technology based industries or organizations.

Other Opportunities

The construction industry has a stigma: weekend work, harsh weather conditions, job instability. This perception may push potential construction employees to seek other industries.

Lack of Vocational Schools

Vocational schools and institutions that provide specific construction related training are hard to come by. In part, most high school graduates are entering other educational institutions that provide emphasis on other fields.

Overcoming the Construction Labor Shortage with Software

Robust construction software built specifically for recruiting, tracking and hiring employees in the construction industry can help close the labor shortage gap.

Get Technical with Technology

Specific software built for construction human resources teams with an easy application process for future applicants will encourage new generations to apply for jobs within your organization.

Empower Employees

Giving your employees the ability to choose their own benefits, see their paycheck stubs, refer future employees and keep track of their training will save them time and frustration. This also helps build your organization’s reputation as a digital powerhouse.

Speed Up the Hiring Process Faster

With construction software specifically built to track the application process, HR teams can quickly and easily view and monitor each detail of the hiring processes without using manual processes that slow down the hiring process.

Mobile Access

A mobile device can be used to update information. This reduces manual processes and updates can happen in real-time. This can also help attract future employees to your organization—employees can use their mobile devices to submit expenses, request time off and view paystubs without HR.

Viewpoint has allowed us to have more quality conversations with new hires. At the same time, it shrunk down the time to input because it populated the fields for us. But the biggest time-saver is the scanning and indexing. When someone does a document in HR Management, it automatically converts to a PDF and we upload it to our paperless file system.
