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
- 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.
