Blog

As a part of our ongoing strategy to increase stakeholder and member engagement, and to communicate ideas & strategies, Build Together will be blogging on various topics throughout the year.

Here are some of the workforce development blog topics you can look forward to:

  • Power in influence
  • Change: why change? And what is an agent of change?
  • Measuring success: what doesn’t get measured doesn’t get done
  • Setting targets/objectives
  • What is an ambidextrous leader?
  • Generational differences in the workplace
  • Mentorship
  • Respectful, inclusive and diverse workplaces
  • Cultural Awareness
  • Barriers for underrepresented groups in the construction industry

We will host guest bloggers and include updates on our Build Together initiatives across the country.
