Talent Acquisition & Employee Retention

Talent Acquisition

Talent acquisition strategies help construction companies to find, hire, and retain the workers they need to maintain and grow their business. Whether it's determining what positions you need to fill or developing a more effective sourcing strategy, putting the right talent plans in place is crucial for every business.

While Ascent is not a recruiting firm, we assist our clients by designing recruiting and evaluation programs, helping them to find and hire top talent.

Based on years of hands-on experience in Construction Management, Operations and Business Ownership, we know what it takes to be successful in the construction industry.  We help our clients find and recruit top talent, and design Onboarding Programs to help ensure their next hire is set up to succeed.

Employee retention is a critical issue as contractors compete for talent. The costs of employee turnover are increasingly high — as much as 2.5x an employee’s salary depending on the role. And there are other soft costs, including lowered productivity, decreased engagement, training costs and cultural impact. By focusing on employee retention, construction companies can retain talented and motivated employees who are focused on contributing to the company’s overall success.
