Many are calling the construction skilled worker shortage an “epidemic.” You make your money in the field, and now more than ever it is so very important to develop your own skilled field labor and leaders. Companies need to have strategies to attract, retain, and engage team members. Great managers and leaders take the time to train and invest in their team members that show promise. They realize that skills, knowledge, and leadership are more than just “natural born” and require both hard and soft skills that can be learned. Developing the leadership skills of your crew leaders, forepersons, and superintendents will help you to retain the team you already have in place.
To assist companies in developing their leaders, ABC Keystone offers: Superintendent Training Program (STP), a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated and field-tested by and for contractors. The STP can help you improve your organization’s bottom line. This comprehensive six-unit program focuses on the knowledge and skills that every superintendent must have to be an effective manager of people, time, equipment and materials. The knowledge and skills obtained from participating in this ABC program will yield results for years to come – for the business, the emerging leader, customers, employees, and community. Grow your own!
