CCS234477 - An Owner, Architect & Contractor walk into a BIM: Defining the Future of Work

Session Description

According to the U.S. Commercial Construction Index, most contractors have a positive outlook on the growth of the construction sector. Concurrently, contractors are worried about filling open positions and technical skill gaps in the current workforce. Technology is growing exponentially in the industry -- from BIM, reality capture, drones and more -- but construction processes are still heavily reliant on valuable institutional knowledge. The industry is primed to attract the next generation construction workforce, so how do we capture and learn from the insights of our veteran construction leaders, while addressing the convergence of People, Process and Technology? Hear directly from seasoned AEC leaders in a lively panel discussion to learn strategies for building technical skills in your teams, how to attract and retain top talent, how to develop a knowledge sharing program, and what lessons we can learn from other industries in talent development.

Additional Information
Understand how to take a balanced approach to people, process and technology
Learn strategies from other industries for attracting, retaining and nurturing top talent
Learn short-term and long-term strategies with establishing technical training at your firm
How to develop a knowledge sharing program to ignite and sustain excitement in innovation
