Human Resources Specialists Construction Sites

HR Specialists Provide Expertise At Renewable Energy Projects.

In today’s world, a job in human resources isn’t confined to a cubicle.

Especially in the construction industry, onsite human resources positions play a vital role in serving the best interests of the employee team. And, traveling human resources specialists at construction projects are becoming more common.

Demand for new construction – especially in the renewable energy industry – is robust. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 11.3 million people in the United States worked in the construction industry in 2019. That is more than three percent of the United States population.

And according to American Clean Power, more than 415,000 Americans across all 50 states have clean energy jobs. Industry momentum, combined with supportive policies and regulations, could deliver more than 1 million clean energy jobs by 2030.

All of these employees relied on competent human resources professionals to provide them with an ideal employee experience.

Onsite HR specialists tackle fast-paced operational pivots on a construction jobsite. Their biggest efforts go into a need for transparency and communication to counter any inaccuracies while helping answer employees’ questions about their benefits or other critical aspects of their jobs.

Adapting HR functions to an onsite environment have been successful, from cyber interviews to virtual job fairs through Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Nevertheless, employees feel safe working on a well-managed construction site and there’s a shared sense that the entire team is going through everything together.
