The 4 Most Effective Ways To Recruit The Best Construction Project Managers For Your Small Business

Enjoy The Blog!

Construction project managers are in high demand these days. With so many construction projects coming up, it can be difficult for small construction business to recruit the best talent that they need in a quick enough timeframe.


Why is this a problem? Lack of readily available 'A player talent' is forcing great companies to turn down projects. Companies are losing unfathomable amounts of revenue in opportunity cost. Furthermore, those who hire 'mediocre' project managers are seeing projects exceed budget and getting hit with extended delays.


Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to help recruit the best construction project management employees for your business in a timely manner without hoping that paid Indeed or LinkedIn job ads get it done! Read on to learn how.


Tip #1: Make sure your company has a strong reputation for doing quality work and treating employees right.


This can be done through positive client reviews on sites like Yelp, Google Reviews, and your website. Additionally, employee testimonials on sites like Glassdoor, Indeed & many similar sites help reinforce your positive company brand to the marketplace. You don't want new hires turning around and leaving after they find out that the culture isn't what they expected.


Tip #2: Make it clear from day one what you expect from employees, including where their priorities should lie when it comes to family, hobbies, and work.


Burn out is a major performance killer for employees. Being transparent about company expectations allows everyone to be on the same page, most often eliminating poor culture fits up front while attracting ideal team members. Ultimately, this level of transparency helps reduce employee turnover as well.


Tip #3: Make sure that you're offering competitive salaries. This will ensure that your company has a good reputation for paying their employees well in addition to providing them with great benefits!


As a company, you want to make sure that your employees are happy. The construction project management employees of today are looking for an employer who not only pays well, but also provides great benefits. You want to make sure that your company is offering a competitive salary in addition to other perks like medical and dental coverage or retirement plan contributions.


If they're not happy with the salary or benefits offered by your business, then they may start looking for opportunities elsewhere. This will most likely lead to them accepting an offer from a competing business in order to get what's necessary for their success and happiness!


For these reasons it is important to invest time into thinking about how you can recruit the best construction project managers for your next upcoming project. Do research on salaries in your area before hiring anyone so you know if they are worth bringing on board as an employee at all costs! You also need think through which benefits would be most desirable and attractive to this type of high level candidate.


Tip #4: Connect with a locally-plugged headhunter. If you don't have an in-house team dedicated to recruitment, the best way to recruit the most elite construction project managers for your small business is by hiring a headhunter like Big League Talent Connection.
