Mental stress in the real estate industry
Some time ago, we stumbled across a contribution from the “Berufsgenossenschaft der Bauwirtschaft”, which dealt with the topic “Psychological stress in the working world”.
Everyday working life is dominated by compaction of work, a high working tempo and pressure to perform. The time factor in particular plays a major role in the construction industry. It has long been no secret that mental stress can lead to health problems. In principle, stresses are neutral for the time being. They refer to all external influences that affect a person, such as tasks, responsibility, organisation. However, the effects of these strains behave differently. Not everyone can permanently withstand this pressure, whether on the building site or in the office. The aim is to ensure that all working conditions are humane in order to maintain the working ability and health of the employees in the long term.
Now, as here at PROPSTER, we cannot influence the way we work on the construction site, but that was never the aim. The way we work in the organisation, on the other hand, was. More than 2 years ago, our founder & CEO Milan started to think seriously about special requests. The goal was to make it as smooth as possible and moreover efficient. That was the birth of our platform and of PROPSTER – the master of special requests. After all, those who save time and spare their nerves do better business and clearly live more healthily. If we look back to the time before PROPSTER, we see countless Excel tables and complex constructs in our minds and that alone can cause stress. One might think that we have the solution par excellence for the construction industry and special requests. We do, but as with all new digital solutions that are coming onto the market, you have to get rid of old habits, especially bad ones, and take time for the process. Mark Twain once said: “You can’t throw a habit out of the window. You have to box it down the stairs, step by step.”
Construction projects can quickly end in chaos and with disappointed expectations of the buyers. This is usually caused by a lack of communication between the developer and the apartment buyer. On top of this, it becomes a bit more complicated when customers express special wishes. So if you fully engage in the adventure called PROPSTER, you will very soon realize what time savings and other advantages are possible here. The solution is a uniform tool for communication, organisation and documentation to fulfil all requirements and wishes of both sides in a simple and clear way.
So if you want to do something good for your company and your employees to prevent possible psychological stress, we would be happy to show you in just 3 small steps how much can be saved with PROPSTER. All you need to do is click on the following link → propster.tech/sonderwunsch-calculator/
