With expenditures exceeding 1.231 billion dollars, the US is one of the largest construction markets in the world. It is estimated that 10 million people are employed by the construction industry with almost 20% of that defined as the Baby Boomer generation. On top of the already skilled labor shortages, hiring for strategic positions has become even more difficult as these baby boomers retire and training venues remain limited. It takes more than a job posting to hire the best in the field…it takes Bridgeway.

RETAINED & CONTINGENCY SEARCH
THE WORD “RECRUIT” HAS LOST ITS MEANING…WE WORK WITH COMPANIES THAT DON’T ACCEPT THAT
Every day we help our clients build the heart of their business by focusing our efforts on locating and placing the impact player, those individuals who give back disproportionate value to their employers.
Our engaged and inspired candidates are entrepreneurial in nature and deliver well beyond their training and supposed skill set to deliver value, advancement and profit.
Their effort doesn’t end just because the day has.
RETAINED & ENGAGED SEARCH
When positions are especially time sensitive and when the candidate pool is particularly restricted, Bridgeway offers retained & Engaged service offerings.
For candidate pools that meet minimum criteria and demand lower research hours, Bridgeway offers contingency search- pay only if you hire- with efforts that mirror our engaged and retained search.
As a Boutique, employee owned Company, Bridgeway has the unique ability to create custom client and search specific pricing based on the service level desired. If you want to pay via the outdated and overpriced industry standard then we can do that as well.
