Workforce Development and the Importance of Recruiting a Diverse Workforce

Corporate America is at a crossroads, says McKinsey & Company in its Women in the Workplace 2020 study. The choices companies make today will have consequences on gender equality for decades. And when you think of an industry dominated by men, construction might be among the first to come to mind. After all, of the people working in construction, women comprise only about 11 percent. Even smaller is the number of women on the front lines of a job site—only one for every 100 employees in the field, according to the Women in Construction: The State of the Industry in 2021 by BigRentz.
