Know Your Client: Effective Construction Business Communication
One of the most basic elements of human communication is knowing your audience. From east to west and north to south, cultural differences can greatly impact the effectiveness of your business and communication. For example, the way you conduct (and construct) business in New York City will differ from a project in Los Angeles, California or in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Our cultural foundations, from the bustling big city to rolling rural hills, affect the way we interact with one another inside and out of the office. There are certain measures business owners can take when conducting business out of state in order to help work go smoothly. Just a bit of research into the business and social culture in potential project areas can strengthen work productivity and your company’s reputation as you do business there.
America is a cultural melting pot with a variety of ways to network and find jobs and projects around the whole country. If you own a construction company in San Antonio, TX and receive an invitation for a potential construction job in San Francisco, California, it helps to become familiar with the area and the culture of the people who live there.
As the job begins and the site is set up, you will want to know who will be directly affected by the project. Research is a pivotal part to getting new projects and strengthening your reputation as a well-rounded, open-minded business. Without research, there will be an obvious lack of understanding between you and the potential employer which could yield a loss of new and future projects. You can find a wealth of information on the Internet, including many state and local Chamber of Commerce websites that offer an abundance of demographic and economic information.
Implement your Knowledge
Now that you have done some research on the location and are about to contact the employer to discuss the work, it is helpful to mention your understanding of the project and the area where the work will take place. This shows the employer that you are not only experienced in construction work, but are able to take time and be proactive in understanding the effects that this project may have on the surrounding environment and people. Your employer can have utmost confidence in your ability to complete a successful project as you demonstrate your ability to listen and show consideration for your client’s knowledge and concerns.
Where to Start
Construction Connection was created out of a need for a more effective and streamlined way for construction industry professionals to get matched with the right industry jobs and with the right industry opportunities. The partners of construction industry professionals themselves, listened to both company and individuals’ dissatisfaction with the traditional job boards, the paid resume blasts, the overpriced resume services and overall lack of sympathy toward the individual candidate. They also listened to the dissatisfaction from companies who post jobs only to get many irrelevant results or having to purchase high priced ads to showcase their company. Construction Connection is a patent-pending, one-of-a-kind profile creating / match-making system. The system delivers effective results. Construction Connection saves you time, money and aggravation by matching people to people, people to companies, companies to people, and company to company.
