B.C.’s construction industry delivers $16 billion of completed projects each year, generates nine per cent of B.C.’s gross domestic product and employs close to 250,000 men and women. While opportunity abounds, B.C. also faces a skilled labour shortage that is forecast to result in 12,000 unfilled jobs by 2028.
In particular, the Lower Mainland is a hotbed of activity that has seen demand for construction services reach unprecedented levels at a time when supply of labour is low. This, together with the volume of and speed at which policies, products and practices are entering the marketplace, means our industry must do more with less. It must build faster, greener and more productively than ever before.
VRCA recognizes the challenge facing its members and understands that while technologies will play a key role in boosting productivity, a clear plan and an engaged, high-performing, stable workforce are essential to a company’s resilience and success.
VRCA has therefore partnered with business execution specialists, Results Canada, to provide your leadership team with a complimentary Business Execution Workshop – a Member Pulse Check – to assess specific facets of your organization and provide you with an action roster of prioritized items for improvement.
With a clientele that is represented by companies in the construction or construction-related fields, the Results Canada specialists will facilitate the session and share their years of business experience along the way. Offered to eligible organizations and valued at $3,000, the complimentary half-day workshop will help you to ultimately take your company from good to great by:
Great companies perform based on a shared vision, effective processes, and high levels of accountability. When leaders put these structures in place, it frees them from being reactionary and allows them to be strategic.
People today are working for more than a pay cheque. They want to work with a company where they feel they fit with the culture, are treated fairly, are developing their careers and are part of a shared and meaningful purpose.
Our family-owned company has a 97-years history and we wanted to engage our team in a planning and accountability process in order to take our business to the next level. The team at Results helped us put in place a strong foundation, articulate our values and purpose and build a strong culture. As a result, our business has grown 350% since 2012, despite challenging market conditions in B.C. and Alberta.
