One of the biggest problems facing the construction industry right now is the lack of skilled workers needed to fill the growing demand.

The construction industry lost more than two million jobs during the economic downturn of the 2000s and never fully recovered. Add that to the fact that construction productivity suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic, with new safety protocols resulting in an average of a 7% financial loss, and it’s clear that productivity remains a top leading indicator of a job’s profitability.

Join this webinar to learn how readily available digital technologies can mitigate labor shortages and increase productivity, along with how to manage the adoption of new technology in the field.

The webinar content will:

  • Outline how labor productivity compares to other, more digitized industries and why construction lags behind.
  • Evaluate the impact digital solutions have already had on the construction industry and how other companies are finding technological solutions to combat the labor shortage.
  • Build the blueprint to evaluate and implement a unified emerging technology toolset to increase productivity and profitability.
  • Identify the three big components of a strategic data approach to tech adoption for construction.
