Set these construction goals to help your organization thrive this year.
It’s no secret that the AEC space is evolving rapidly, and nowhere is that more true than within the construction industry. With ongoing projects, staffing changes, and technology updates, it can be difficult to take a step back and look at the bigger picture for your construction organization.
But taking the time to set goals for the coming year can go a long way in growing your company, keeping your team on track, and making progress toward your larger business goals. Not sure where to start?
Here are a few suggestions for construction goals to set in 2023 from the team at Eagle Point Software:
- Evaluate your communications
- Improve client satisfaction
- Reduce time spent on employee questions/issues
- Increase employee satisfaction and retention
- Set standards and best practices
Read on to learn more about each of these construction goals you can set in the New Year, and how they can help streamline your business!
Evaluate your communications
In order to reach your business and construction goals, you need everyone to be on the same page. If it’s been a while since you’ve taken a serious look at how your organization communicates, make this your first goal of 2023!
Talk with staff or send out a survey to see how employees would rate communication at your firm, and see if they have any suggestions for improvement. It’s also a good idea to pinpoint any communication roadblocks you’re facing and how to fix them. For example, if you have remote workers who don’t feel as heard as the in-office members of your team, explore ways to loop them in and make them feel included!
Improve client satisfaction
Growing your business may be on your 2023 to-do list, but so should making sure your current clients are happy. Reassess your clients’ priorities, and check in with their leadership on how your firm is meeting (or exceeding!) their expectations. Be as transparent as possible, and send progress updates, so they always know the status of their construction project.
Reduce time spent on employee questions/issues
If your team is spending hours each day tracking down answers or filing help tickets, they aren’t able to focus on their current projects and work for clients. Help cut down on the time employees spend looking for solutions with an on-demand e-learning and knowledge-sharing system like Pinnacle Series.
Increase employee satisfaction and retention
Staffing issues are plaguing companies in just about every industry, and construction is no exception. Making sure your employees are satisfied with their work and the culture at your organization can go a long way in attracting new talent and retaining your current team. One of the top ways to do this is by giving your employees the opportunity to enhance their skills and develop their careers with training resources like those offered in Pinnacle Series.
Set standards and best practices
Setting standards and best practices — especially those centered around safety — is a construction goal that should be on any team’s to-do list. These guidelines can help keep everyone on your team focused, ensure that safety protocols are being followed on job sites, reduce costly project errors, and more.
