Construction firms are grappling with labor shortages. Recent data suggests there were 88,000 fewer construction workers at the end of 2021 compared to pre-pandemic levels. Competition for workers is fierce as firms fight to take advantage of increased demand for infrastructure, housing and other projects.

With the industry’s staffing challenges, retaining skilled staff is more important than ever — not only in the field, but also in the office. Consider your accounting department: What are accounts payable (AP) professionals looking for in their careers? What is most valuable to them when evaluating job opportunities?

To better understand the driving motivations behind AP burnout, turnover and overall job satisfaction across all industries, AvidXchange partnered with the Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM) on an AP Professional Career Satisfaction Survey.

In this webinar, industry experts will recap these survey results and provide tips on how construction firms can meet the demands of top AP talent to help grow their business. You’ll learn:

  • The staffing challenges facing the construction industry
  • The current state of AP professional career satisfaction and what they’re looking for in their next job
  • How to attract and retain AP talent in the construction industry while creating efficiencies amid economic uncertainty
