Construction Subcontractors Are Learning How to Develop Future Leaders and Build Corporate Culture with New FASA Video-on-Demand

Many construction businesses are looking for strong leaders who can deliver accelerating results as their companies recover from the recession and maintain that momentum through a generational transition in the future. Many young people entering the work force, however, are discouraged with finding jobs in those sectors hit hardest by the recession, including the construction industry.

Faced with this dilemma, subcontractors are using a new video-on-demand, “Preparing for a Changing Work Force,” available from the Foundation of ASA, to learn how their businesses can compensate for this demographic convergence and develop their future leaders and managers.
