Karla Nugent, Weifield founder & Chief Revenue Officer, was honored to highlight the idea of implementing flexible work in construction as a way to recruit and retain tradespeople — in the recent Engineering News-Record Mountain States ‘Viewpoint’ column at the following link!
It is no secret that finding labor in the construction market is increasingly difficult. According to a recent report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 371,000 unfilled jobs in the construction industry. Yet the demanding schedule of construction work often presents an additional barrier to entry for new workers. Data from recent studies and companies who have incorporated the flexible work model—including Weifield—shows that this shift has resulted in increased employee morale and productivity at or above the predicted rates—in fact, flexible work was likely a key factor in exceeding the positive rates.
