Make Tech Cool For Your Team

Happy Coworkers Laughing With Smartphone In Construction Site

Construction technology and innovation have been hot topics in the industry for years. We’ve all heard about streamlining processes to improve business profitability and make our teams more efficient. But Construction Dive recently published a report revealing that the construction industry ranked the least technologically competent among those surveyed. As an industry, how can we progress if we are viewed as laggards? 

Prove the world, and your competition, wrong! Tech can be easy to adopt, rewarding to implement, and FUN to use! It doesn’t always have to be in the form of software and apps. It can be TikToks and TV shows too. Below is a great list of social influencers in construction, what’s hot in tech pop culture, and how to empower your team to keep tech on their radar. Oh, and of course, some internet gold.
