Episode 54 - The Perception and Mindset of Construction’s Evolution

Episode 54 - The Perception and Mindset of Construction’s Evolution

July 19, 2021

Tune in to ‘The Construction Big Breakfast’ podcast episode no which has special guest, Rob Garvey, joining your host from Invennt, Tip-Top Tim Fitch to discuss the culture of construction, top companies and major projects that have happened and affected the industry, as well as how we are creating an exceptional performance in their innovation and progress on projects.

In today’s episode, we are diving into some hot topics about what’s happening in and the construction industry's perception as a consequence of Grenfell, which is truly an event that is of such significance and indicative of the way we need to change things in the industry.

We cover a few articles written back in May 2021 about the industry and reflect on how the industry is looking to do their best, with an ever-shifting mindset, as opposed to how the articles portrayed the construction industry in a poor light often trying to suggest that construction isn’t doing its best.

What do you think about the way construction is working now versus how it was working before the mega, and very tragic, disaster of Grenfell?

What are your views on the mindset of the industry? Are we constantly evolving the way we want to? Or are we stuck in the past?

Assetree’s saying ‘Beyond the Bottom Line’ is essential in achieving true equality and balance in the construction industry. In this episode, we talk about building a voice of equality in the workplace, how important it is to treat women and men fairly inside the workforce and how mistreatment or offhand remarks can affect employees on a deeper level than what you may see them laughing off on the surface.

 

What are your thoughts on equality in the construction sector? How has it been improved over the past years and where does it still need improvement?

 

We look forward to your thoughts!
