Construction Companies Use The Predictive Index to Close the Talent Gap, Create Winning Teams, and Grow Their Businesses with Talent Optimization

AMEK, Coastal Construction, Shawmut Design & Construction, and Hundreds of Construction Companies Use PI to Increase Employee Engagement and Reach their Business Goals

BOSTON, Mass – April 9, 2019 – More than one in three (35%) working Americans are millennials, outnumbering Gen Xers (33%) and Baby Boomers (25%). When paired with an acute labor shortage, mobilizing, managing, and retaining millennials can be a real challenge for many organizations—especially those in more traditional sectors like construction.

The Predictive Index, the leader in talent optimization, gives construction leaders—at companies such as AMEK, Coastal Construction, Shawmut Design & Construction, and Windover Construction—access to the people data and strategy they need to design great teams and culture, and turn the labor shortage, millennials, and succession planning into a competitive advantage.


AMEK Dramatically Increases Employee Engagement with PI

AMEK is an award-winning remodeling and building company. With a growing business, a labor shortage, and a multi-generational workforce, AMEK turned to talent optimization platform The Predictive Index.

“Over the 24 years of being in the residential remodeling business, we’ve experienced some growing pains,” said CEO of AMEK Andrew Schmidt. “Going from six employees with owners actively involved in every job to 25+ employees with less direct support from owners presented big challenges. We turned to PI to make sure every new and existing employee and manager embodied both the behavioral attributes and core values needed to continue our legacy of making homeowners’ dreams come true.”

Since partnering with The Predictive Index in 2017, AMEK has seen its employee engagement scores increase dramatically—from 3.6 in 2016 to 4.2 in 2018 (on a scale from 1-5), and from a 59% to an 87% ranking in the Gallup database.

Schmidt continued, “It’s important to focus on improving engagement because actively engaged employees are key to driving clients’ satisfaction, productivity, company profits, and culture. In fact, AMEK’s higher employee engagement scores correlated with a higher 2018 NPS score—and an overall 40% revenue increase from 2017 to 2018.”
