Connecting construction to the diverse talent of today with Paul Robinson

The Building Code

Episode 145: Paul Robinson Construction’s in a labor shortage, and the industry’s only growing older. Construction consultant group ConstructReach found over half of the construction workforce is over 46 years old. Racial minorities have traditionally been underrepresented in construction, according to ConstructReach. But ConstructReach founder and CEO Paul Robinson says the opportunity to reverse that trend and address this labor shortage is here: 44% of millennials and 49% of Generation Z are non-white. Today on “The Building Code,” Zach and Charley learn Paul’s story and why he thinks construction companies can connect the industry’s abounding opportunity to a younger, more diverse workforce. HOW CAN LACK OF DIVERSITY BE A BARRIER TO YOUNG PEOPLE LOOKING TO ENTER CONSTRUCTION?“One of the things that we try to do is to allow others to see themselves in this industry. Because if you can't see yourself, then you can't see yourself actually being in it. And so understanding the importance of being able to identify with others, not just those entry-level positions, but seeing how far you can go -seeing yourself represented in the very highest positions that this industry has to offer.” HOW CAN A BUILDING COMPANY START APPEALING TO A MORE DIVERSE WORKFORCE?“It's making sure that you do the proper assessment internally first. There's nothing like putting forth a lot of effort and going through all of the steps to get in front of young talent that you're not ready for. And so that's one of the things that we like to stress. It's not a cookie-cutter approach, it's not a cookie-cutter model, so you're not going to do these 10 things and then magically see this pipeline and this diverse pipeline grow overnight. It is really looking at how you do business, understanding that DEI is something that should be interwoven into the fabric of the company - making sure that you are healthy to receive them. You're not going to be perfect. If there's a person there, it's not perfect. But we can be healthy.” LINKS AND MORE Related content:Learn more about ConstructReach’s success here.

Kev And Ant's Footy Rants - Euros Build-Up - with Ant Rutherford and Paul Robinson

The Kevin Clifton Show

This week, Kevin and Ant Rutherford are joined by Paul Robinson, former league player and England star, for a bumper look at the build-up England's first match at the European Football Championship, which kicks off for the Three Lions boys on Sunday 13th June! KEY TAKEAWAYS England has always tended to hold back the new talent when it comes to the international stage. However, recently, we have found great success is playing new stars with no fear. The players who find themselves picked in major tournaments are oddly left out of the build-up friendlies in order to rest, but the best method would be to play them so as to gain momentum. Football is all about chemistry - selecting the right ingredients to use in the right places, in order to build a robust force that works effortlessly and which terrifies the opposition. The problem with England squads of the past is that sometimes players are selected because of how the country feels about them emotionally, and not whether they are the best person for the job at the time. BEST MOMENTS 1:00 - 'To say that I was right, 100%, would be an understatement' 4:08 - 'These young players that are coming through have no fear' 16:57 - 'I think that midfield three is so dynamic and dangerous, it could cause a whole lot of teams a whole lot of problems' 1:12:00 - 'When you watch him in midfield, he was always five seconds ahead' VALUABLE RESOURCES Anthony Rutherford Twitter - https://twitter.com/anthr23?lang=en Paul Robinson Twitter - https://twitter.com/gkpaulrobinson ABOUT THE HOST Kevin Clifton is a professional dancer who has been performing & competing at the highest level for over a decade. Kevin has worked on shows like 'Burn the floor' & 'Rock of Ages' to 'Strictly Come Dancing' one of the biggest TV shows in the UK which Kevin won in 2018.  CONTACT METHOD Kevin Clifton Instagram Kevin Clifton Facebook Kevin Clifton YouTubeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
