The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many companies to adapt in order to survive. Even in essential industries like construction, businesses have gone through reorganizations in order to keep operating in a drastically different reality. While the pandemic has changed lives and the way organizations do business in countless ways, one thing remains constant: people matter.
Companies rely on dedicated, smart people to help them innovate, adapt to change, grow, and thrive. Now is the time to make sure you have the right people in the right positions to ensure your company can weather an economic downturn and come out stronger.
We want to help you. Seaton and Associates has over 20 years of experience in matching the industry’s top professionals with leading construction companies. We understand the challenges of recruiting in an economic downturn but know for many construction companies, hiring is a necessity for completing projects and servicing demand. There are more job seekers than ever right now, and though it may seem counterintuitive, recruiters can provide even more value when you have hundreds of resumes to choose from. A surplus of candidates can make it more difficult and time-consuming for companies to find the right people to fill critical positions.
Furthermore, with tighter budgets, new regulations, and uncertainty in the market, there’s less room for hiring errors and more pressing demands on decisionmakers’ time. Here are a few reasons why hiring a niche-industry recruiting firm like Seaton and Associates to help bring you the best people is a good idea now more than ever:
This pandemic will no doubt have a long-lasting impact on our economy, but businesses who adapt, make smart decisions, and take action will come out ahead. Don’t wait to build your team. Strong people make strong companies, and in the midst of a crisis, the strong survive.
