How Responsive is the Construction Industry?

How responsive is the construction industry locally and globally and capable of responding to the following challenges:

• An ageing workforce?
• Unnecessarily poor image to attract younger workers including more women and ethnic minorities?
• Raising skills levels to include the use of digital technologies and new materials?
• Improving productivity and innovation?
• Improving workforce retention?
• Adapting to an increasing culture of self-employment?
• Stabilizing a ‘boom and bust’ business model with low profit margins?
• Addressing the mismatch between skill demand and training supply?
• Improving access to training for both young people and adults?
• Increase career-advancement opportunities?
• Reducing fraud and corruption?
• Lack of promotion of the industry?
• Using persistently the traditional procurement system that fosters low quality inputs resulting in poor quality outputs?
• Finding tradespeople in the short term?

These and other questions will be discussed during the Industry Roundtable. This is a CPD event. Earn your CPD points by participating.
