XYZ U and MCAA have partnered to lead the charge to help solve the workforce crisis inflicting the construction industry.
XYZ University and the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) have partnered to help MCAA’s members address multi-generational workforce issues. Through a customized workforce response initiative, this partnership is leading the charge to help solve the workforce crisis inflicting the construction industry.
“Our members have consistently expressed that workforce development is one of the main issues facing the industry as a whole. On a company-level, one of the main issues is how to properly understand and communicate with people of different age groups. The research and course XYZ University are undertaking for us will help us tackle the challenge,” said Jeff Buczkiewicz, President of the MCAA.
The partnership will culminate in a live two-day interactive learning event at World of Concrete 2019. Built around the six pillars of the Talent Generation: How Visionary Organizations Are Redefining Work and Achieving Greater Success, authored by Sarah Sladek, CEO of XYZ University, attendees will participate in a virtual and live learning experience that guides them through the development of a workforce response plan. They will receive tools and insights on internal workforce culture and learn best practices for effective workforce development. At the end of the two-day course attendees will better understand and be better equipped to work within the intergenerational dynamics that exist on the construction job-site.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to work with the members of MCAA, equipping them with the insights and tools they need to successfully engage employees, foster teamwork, and build companies that can compete and grow in an era of tremendous challenge and change,” said Sarah Sladek, CEO of XYZ University, LLC.
