Online Training Can Prepare Workers for the Construction Boom
Posted by Des Sinkevich on July 22, 2021
Why effective training programs are vital to company success
In addition to slowing down the steady pace needed to complete work on time, having new hires learn on the job puts undue stress on your seasoned workers which can lead to burnout, frustration, and, potentially, higher employee turnover. With the construction industry recovering almost 80% of lost jobs, workers have more employment options available so it’s essential to ensure that they don’t feel the need to find work elsewhere. An effective training program can not only help you attract and prepare new hires for the day-to-day work they’re required to do, but it can also make a positive impact on company culture, morale, and help your business retain the skilled workers you already have on staff.
