How Construction Contractors Can Bounce Back Post-Pandemic
By Pete Cleveland, VP, Product Strategy
Let’s face it – this pandemic has been hard on all of us. Young and old, office workers and skilled laborers alike have seen unemployment levels rise, food prices skyrocket and a new normal for everyday work. And it’s no secret that the construction industry has undergone some of the most difficult hardships. With “non-essential” construction projects shut down in many states for almost two months, the industry lost nearly one million jobs in April alone.
It hasn’t been easy – and it won’t be an easy recovery – but much like its dedicated workers, the construction industry is tough. It will recover. And the path to recovery – and growth – is clear. Contractors must embrace technology.
Technology increases productivity by finding and improving areas of inefficiency, optimizes the planning phase to save time and money on construction, and enables companies to fill in for absent workers until the economy bounces back.
In the long run, those that embrace tech to grow their business can hire back more great people.
