Recruitment: Why Gray & Son Recruits Locally in the Construction Industry

If you’re considering a career in construction, you’re in the right place. Today, we’re pulling back the curtain on our approach at Gray & Son and sharing why we’re passionate about recruiting locally in the construction industry. From apprentices to experienced professionals, we believe that our community’s talent pool has the potential to shape the future of construction. So, whether you’re a seasoned construction worker or just beginning to dip your toes into the world of construction careers, read on to discover why we think going local is the way to go.

The Power of Recruiting Local Construction Talent

At Gray & Son, we’ve built a more than 100-year-old legacy on a foundation of expertise, dedication, and a commitment to excellence. One of the key pillars of our success is our emphasis on recruiting for jobs in construction from the local talent pool. 

First and foremost, recruiting locally strengthens our bond with the communities we serve. We believe in investing in our neighborhoods, and what better way to do so than by providing job opportunities to our neighbors? When you have a career at Gray & Son, you’re not just a part of a construction team. You’re a part of the family and a vital thread that runs through the fabric of your own community.

“Strong relationships are the reason we have been in business for over 100 years,” says our EVP Katie McInnes. “Our commitment to our employees, customers, and community defines who we are.”

Hiring locally also boosts local economies. Our employees spend their earnings within the area, contributing to the growth and prosperity of our neighborhoods. It’s a win-win situation that extends far beyond the construction site.

Skill Development and Mentorship for Future Success

The construction industry is all about hands-on expertise, and by recruiting locally, we foster skill development and mentorship opportunities for the long term. Newcomers to the industry can learn from seasoned pros who have honed their craft over years of experience in the area. From problem-solving to more technical construction skills, this approach to a wide range of tasks not only elevates our projects but paves the way for a new generation of skilled construction industry professionals.

Recruiting Locally for the Right Fit

Fit can be essential to a harmonious and efficient work environment. When it comes to construction this doesn’t mean that everyone has to have the same beliefs. Different ideas and backgrounds help us come at projects from different perspectives and that can be incredibly helpful to successful outcomes. 

However, when we recruit locally, we often find individuals who understand the values and work ethic that resonate with Gray & Son. Our team members enjoy being part of the communities we serve and ultimately, become part of an extended family that is united by a passion for the construction industry and a commitment to excellence.
