Hiring in Green Building and Manufacturing
May 5, 2022
According to the World Green Building Council a ‘green’ building is a building that, in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates negative impacts, and can create positive impacts, on our climate and natural environment. Green buildings preserve precious natural resources and improve our quality of life.
Based on that definition you can see how the increase in green buildings is impacting construction and hiring needs.
HOW DOES THIS IMPACT CONSTRUCTION AND HIRING NEEDS?
“Residential & commercial building contractors are becoming aware of the significance of green building materials in the construction industry owing to the increasingly adverse effects of traditional materials on the climate through the production of steel and cement, among others.”
The industry is going to have to continue to rethink/reframe its standard building practices and how it approaches projects going forward. Not only are the buildings being constructed with new ideas in mind, but the team that builds them needs an entirely new set of skills to make it happen.
TZR can help you build the right team the first time and fast.
WHAT SKILLS ARE REQUIRED TO EXCEL?
TZR’s experienced recruiters are looking for a few things when it comes to green-related positions.
The green building materials market is anticipated to surpass USD 610 billion by 2028, as reported in a research study by Global Market Insights Inc. Rising awareness about energy efficiency in buildings along with growing green building construction activities across emerging economies will positively impact the market growth.
For many seasoned veterans in the industry, this new way of approaching construction could result in a steep learning curve. No doubt, their expertise is still incredibly valuable but construction is changing and it’s important to have a mix of employees with complementary skills. Those that know construction in and out, and those that can help usher in a new approach.
We are also on the lookout for candidates with specialized skills: “As building manufacturers and designers put a greater focus on creating healthier indoor spaces, this year, we will see air purification, natural light, and sound-canceling design techniques incorporated into new developments.”
TZR has a network full of both seasoned and new-to-market professionals.
Whether it’s renewable energy, clean air or climate-ready construction, one thing is clear – the industry is changing rapidly and each new technology that pops up requires a new set of skills and understanding that will greatly affect your organization’s ability to compete going forward.
Finding and keeping candidates that are at the cutting edge of each new trend is more important than ever. It’s the difference between winning the next bid and proving yourself to be innovative, creative and up to the challenge.
This is where TZR Talent Zone excels.
EFFICIENCY AND MAINTAINING STRICT CONTROLS ON REGULATIONS AT HOME AND AROUND THE WORLD
“Stringent building energy efficiency regulations across developed economies such as the U.S., Canada, Germany, the UK, and France, among others are supporting the demand for green products.”
“The green building industry has come a long way in the past few years as the U.S. continues to adopt new policies to move away from fossil fuels and push for net zero carbon.”
With the rate of change and innovation moving at lighting speed, it’s imperative to have a team of knowledgeable, up-to-date professionals leading the charge. A thorough understanding of current and future regulations is non-negotiable and corporations can’t afford to be caught even one step behind in this area.
TZR makes sure candidates can meet your current needs and 1-Up when the time comes.
GREEN BUILDING IMPACT ON MANUFACTURING
“There will be a significant discussion on rethinking material transportation, waste efficiency, fuel consumption, and locally sourcing products in 2022 to cut back on embodied carbon.”
Every aspect of the manufacturing industry will be impacted by these fundamental shifts in the way construction is managed. Demand for environmentally friendly materials will continue to rise while other, less desirable materials will lose favor.
Expectations for efficient and low-waste logistics means changes to transportation, timing and location for ordering and shipping.
Meanwhile the size and scale of certain projects are also changing. Determining what this means for your organization will require careful review and consideration for where things stand and where you want to go.
TZR can help identify candidates who are currently on your team that will continue to make an impact as well as accessing our deep bench of professionals to find those that will help you keep growing.
