Construction Industry Insight in a Post COVID-19 World

Ramzi Jreidini. CEO of Handiss, a talent placement management company that specializes in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) shares his insight into how the construction industry will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and what AEC professionals can do to lower its impact. Jreidini sees recruitment post COVID-19 across many industries going to a partial shift to remote work, perhaps only 1 – 2 days per week. COVID-19, Jreidini says, has forced companies to figure out ways of getting work done remotely and that includes AEC related businesses.  Jreidini expects to see the landscape of recruitment shift from horizontal platforms such as LinkedIn and Indeed to verticalized labor marketplaces related to the specific industry, for example AEC.
