Fresh Perspectives

Young professionals are proving their value as construction firms battle a talent shortage and seek innovative ways to stay ahead of the competition. Three up-and-comers from the ABC National Young Professionals program discuss how the under-40 crowd can navigate new leadership roles and bring fresh perspectives to the construction industry.

Consequently, these contractors invest more time on the right opportunities and the right customers. They spend time with the customers where the contractor has been able to influence the decision-making process and communicate value.
