Culture Matters with Construction

Over the last ten years, “company culture” has gone from a marketing and HR buzzword to a key factor in company management decisions–and rightfully so.

With the job market becoming so competitive, workers now hold a lot of the power because the fact of the matter is that if you don’t enjoy the place you’re working at now, you can easily find somewhere new to work within a day or two.

That’s where company culture comes in. In fact, Forbes has already dubbed 2022 “The Year of Workplace Culture.” It’s that important. Companies continue to struggle to not only recruit top talent, but also retain top talent, and a major part of that is due to company culture, as 46% of job seekers regard culture as a “very important” factor when deciding whether to apply for a job or not.

Does Culture Matter In The Construction Industry?

The construction industry is often thought of as one that is “rough around the edges,” but, in reality, it isn’t that much different than most other jobs out there when it comes to the importance of company culture.

With that being said, the vast majority of companies within the construction industry are still late to the culture game, not yet recognizing its importance. By being an early adapter to the importance of company culture, your construction company can get an early lead above the rest, which will help in the long run when it comes to recruitment and retention.

Here at Armcorp Construction, Inc., culture is one of the most important pieces of our day-to-day business. For example, our Mission Statement starts with, “We don’t just build buildings, we build people.”
