Updated: May 27, 2022




▶️This is for a construction worker who wants to grow fast while working for construction companies or labour-hire companies. Becoming a "linchpin" is the way to do it in most construction sites.








The idea is simple: Getting paid more as a construction worker means that you bring more value to the company and the construction sites.



WHAT MAKES A GOOD CONSTRUCTION WORKER


✅Here are some highly sought after traits of a successful construction worker that a construction manager considers when placing worth. Learn these because, At the end of the day, it is important to have certain traits to separate yourself from the herd.

 

BE A LEADER EVERYONE LOOKS UP TO


construction worker with leadership traits is generally the one that is worth more to the company.


✳️Leadership has all to do with communication, being trustworthy from any other construction worker (above and under you) and is keen to take responsibility.


Taking things slow can help improve work productivity and save time, find out how here.

 

IMPROVE YOUR ORGANISATIONAL SKILLS


Being organised means that you take your job seriously, which results in better workplace efficiency.

Organisational skills are not something that should be regarded by office construction worker only.










 

DEVELOP COMMUNICATION SKILLS


Good communication is the heart of a successful company and being a top construction worker. This means that a construction worker who communicates within and outside the company beautifully is considered a great asset. This should show you why another construction worker keeps on getting called into the manager’s office and gets treated like royalty.



 





GROW YOUR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE




Being emotionally stable inspires trust. Other team members will know they can count on you to make difficult decisions or go the extra mile without complaining on one of those tough days.



 


HAVE GREAT AMBITION

“Where there's a will, there's a way.”

Hardworking construction worker that is ambitious can elevate the performance of their entire team. As a job that requires physical demands, a construction worker is needed to be hardworking.


​👉🏻As a construction worker, it doesn't matter the level of education you have, even if you finished a technical high school diploma or other related academic certificates. Your ambition is not defined by your past, but by what you want to be in the future.


 

DEVELOP THE SKILL OF ADAPTABILITY


construction workers who possess multiple skill sets are valued more than a construction worker who has just one skill. This is because, in cases of emergency, an employer wants to be able to change construction worker roles and still get quality products. Having a wide range of knowledge and experience with tools and equipment and building materials can help you quickly adapt to any task.






 



LEARN AND MAINTAIN A WORK ETHIC


Always do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Simple as that.

➡️Work ethic, along with Leadership Skills, was proven to be more valuable for construction recruiters than actual work experience. Having this as a cornerstone and entry requirements put you on the right track to be indispensable construction workers.



 

BE PROACTIVE AND FIND SOLUTIONS TO DAILY PROBLEMS

If you have a construction workers job, you don't need to wait until people ask you to do it.

To be considered a valuable person by the company you need to be trusted. You will not be trusted if your manager thinks you will stop working or slack when unsupervised. Avoid that. Just follow your job descriptions duties and responsibilities. physical strength and mental strength are required most of the time.



 



HAVE EMPATHY TOWARD EVERYONE



Help your bosses and your co-construction workers as much as you can. Be supportive as a co-worker and as a human being.

Teach the ones that are willing to learn and always be humble to learn more things yourself. Be fair and respectful. Have decent and respectful body language, and improve your hand eye coordination for better dealings and treatment of others.
