We’re pretty lucky. We have fun jobs in the Content Studio where we get the opportunity to sit down (virtually) with LaborChart customers (just like Turner) and hear their story. We get to ask them nitty gritty questions about their business and LaborChart journey — and in the process, hear some pretty incredible micro-stories that unfold during our conversations.
Last month was Sprig. This week, we’d like to share Turner’s journey with you. Who they are, what they did before LaborChart and why they chose to onboard a digital workforce management platform. Enjoy.
Turner: Fostering Innovation and Embracing Emerging Technology
Turner Construction Company is an international construction services company headquartered in New York City, New York. With roughly 10,000 employees completing $12 billion of construction on 1,500 projects each year, Turner takes on large and complex initiatives with a focus on innovation, technology and pushing the boundaries to find the next great thing.
Turner Needed Help with Construction Workforce Management
Some construction companies might be able to get by managing their labor on spreadsheets or whiteboards — “get by” being the keywords. Larger construction companies will quickly drown using outdated practices like this. Turner recognized this very early on.
Turner’s daily project coordination took three people each managing a spreadsheet on different devices. Employee contact information was locked away, inconsistencies between spreadsheets were the norm and inefficiencies were holding back projects that spanned across the globe. They were doing okay, but as one of the largest domestic contractors in the country, Turner needed to do more than just okay. They wanted to be the best.
Workforce Management Platform Creates Efficiencies
Turner was growing and needed a workforce management platform that could keep up and grow alongside them. They found LaborChart and immediately noticed a difference. For Turner, assigning crews was an every day challenge. Now, they’re able to see who’s on time, who’s trained, has certifications and is on-site and ready to work. With LaborChart, they’re able to communicate job updates with an entire crew or send single messages with individual updates to specific workers. There’s no more guessing game, calling around or tracking down workers.
The world-wide contractor is now able to deliver on promises made during the bidding process because they have detailed information on their people and projects at their fingertips.
