Contractors from Across the Country Gather for Workforce Management Summit

Over a dozen contractors, hailing from Colorado to South Dakota and beyond, attended the Workforce Management Summit, hosted by LaborChart, a Procore Company, in November in Kansas City. General and specialty contractors shared diverse perspectives about their workforce management (WFM) journeys at their own organizations that vary in size and type of work. The day was filled with barbeque, WFM presentations and cheering the Kansas City Chiefs to victory.

Bridging the WFM Gap

Brian Witt, Director of Business Development at LaborChart, a Procore Company, presented on the importance of bridging the WFM gap that exists in most organizations and key strategies to enact change. Witt shared the People, Process, Technology (PPT) framework that’s at the heart of most businesses and how it can be specifically aligned to construction. Akin to a three-legged stool, Witt explained how each leg of PPT must be equally balanced for organizational success and how contractors are achieving sustained success through aligning and enabling their people, processes and technology.

Real Contractors, Real Problems, Real Solutions 

Gary Fuchs, former VP of Construction at Westphal Electric and current Senior Product Specialist at LaborChart, a Procore Company, shared his WFM journey from his time as an electrical contractor. A WFM pioneer at his own organization, Fuchs testified to how WFM can truly transform an organization — even eliminating the need for labor meetings at his company. Fuchs answered questions from attendees about putting WFM into action and ways to improve usage by professionalizing and democratizing WFM.

Workforce Management Testimonials 

Each group in attendance had the chance to discuss their company’s WFM journey. These testimonials echoed common themes of alignment, accountability and risk management when given the right tools to manage their labor. For many attendees, life before digital WFM was filled with inefficient, never-ending labor meetings as well as difficulty with forecasting and scheduling. The collaborative spirit was evident as participants both commiserated over past struggles as well as encouraged each other to try new approaches in WFM to better support their greatest asset — their people.

To continue the WFM conversation, attendees enjoyed mingling during happy hour and chatting about their construction connection before closing out the night with the Chiefs vs. Giants game at Arrowhead Stadium. While every organization’s WFM journey is different, LaborChart, a Procore Company, is here to assist and support every step of the way. Ready to make a difference in your company’s WFM practices?
