“Young workers are the future of the industry so more must be done to convince them why construction and engineering are attractive professions.  

The industry is facing an ongoing skills shortage, which means it’s now more important than ever to retain the best young talent.

While salary will always be important, young professionals are increasingly looking for companies that provide good career prospects as well as opportunities to learn and take on new challenges.

 

Companies must commit to providing good training and benefits packages to both recruit and retain the best talent.”
