Behind-the-scenes look at our product theatre session
Construction is facing a massive labor shortage which is driving up costs and reducing profits. Despite major ambitions to take on more projects, construction companies face the reality that they must continuously “do more with less” – taking on more projects with fewer people.
Recruitment & retention
Females represent a mere 9.1% of the construction workforce – there is a massive opportunity for companies to recruit and retain female talent to help bridge the labour gap. Watch the full session here.
Diversity goes beyond race and culture – it can include work experience too. Here’s how you can hire outside of the normal talent pool and attract and retain hires from diverse backgrounds. Watch the full session here.
