A series of workshops aimed at activating better business in the building sector kicks off this November.

In a new move for the construction sector in Aotearoa, the Construction Activator is a programme aiming to energise, educate and elevate building businesses and those who work in them. Established by The Construction Sector Accord and Callaghan Innovation, the Construction Activator series kicks off in November with a series of three in-person workshops across the motu.

“Offering free tools, resources and opportunities to help construction businesses connect, grow and thrive,” is how the programme has been announced to the industry. “These in-person events are free and will help you position your business for a more sustainable, productive and profitable future.”

First up, ‘Build a Thriving Construction Business - Foundation Workshops’ will enable construction sector workers to learn strategies and practical tips to help establish the right foundations for their business to succeed.

“With rising costs and economic uncertainty, there has never been a more critical time to find out what construction businesses can do to meet these big challenges,” according to the programme’s media release.
