Part of maintaining and growing a strong, profitable construction business means knowing where you stand in relation to other local firms. This executive summary includes the overall responses received in our 2018 survey of Maryland construction contractors. You’ll get data and insights on hot-button topics like:

  • Are Maryland construction contractors more or less optimistic for 2018 than they were for 2017?
  • What are contractors’ top business concerns?
  • Why do construction companies lose good employees?
  • Why does giving regular employee feedback matter?
  • What do other contractors do to recruit younger generations to the construction industry?

A .pdf version of the slideshow is available here.
