Communication Is More Important Than Ever
The field office divide is on its way to becoming an abyss.
There already was a chasm, as noted in this picture showing some results from the People In Construction Report we did last year.
Office folks are working from home….Field folks are working and facing COVID etc.
I challenged leaders on both sides to work to bridge the chasm. That challenge remains and it just got more important. Communication is key. Regular, honest, real communication. Job site visits also are important. Six feet away is better than 6 miles which may as well be 600.
If you say WE are going to get through this you have to make the field feel like part of the WE and the data says it wasn’t happening.
