The outbreak exposes challenges many contractors haven’t had to face before. State-mandated work from home orders mean workers need remote access to workstations. Some jobsites remain closed, causing massive delays in projects. Cybersecurity attacks from opportunistic hackers threatens companies’ sensitive data.
Many owners have been left asking hard questions.
How can the business sustain profitability?
How can we keep employees on the jobsite and in-office safe?
How can we improve operations for better productivity?
How can we keep valuable data safe?
To help construction companies answer these tough questions, Viewpoint is offering a free webinar series called Oh Shift!: Changing Construction Perspectives. Industry experts will lead an open discussion about these pain points, how to overcome them and tips and tricks for emerging from the crisis stronger than ever.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the topics and themes that will be discussed in this series:
Leadership in Tough Times — How to Make Hard Decisions Easier: Whether we are struggling through a pandemic or personal matters, life and business go on. How well that goes depends on the response of individuals — as leaders and as role models. Join this discussion on simplifying hard decisions, and how smart management can help companies emerge stronger on the other side of a crisis.
Risky Business: It’s not just a Tom Cruise movie — risk is now reality for construction businesses. In a post-COVID world, the risks construction owners face are more prevalent, such as what happens if a project is defaulted on or how project delays are litigated where liquidated damages are in play. Join a panel of experts as they discuss risk as it relates to construction jobs.
Up Your Tech (& Up Your Productivity): Like professional athletes, construction professionals know the value of using the latest and greatest gear. Owners often ask if they are equipping their team with the technology they need to stay productive and that enables teamwork between office staff, engineers and field crews. Industry leaders will discuss the increasingly important role that technology is playing in becoming a more productive and connected industry.
Register for the first of these informative webinars, coming up on May 28, and join Rear Admiral Lou Smith USN (ret.) and President and CEO of Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) Stuart Binstock in a discussion on leadership through tough times.
