What are the top 5 challenges within construction?
Aging workforce and skills shortage
Not only are many construction companies facing a shortage of skilled workers, but it is often the case that the workforce are aged between 50-60, with many employees soon to retire. Attracting new and younger workers to the industry has historically been difficult - and the lack of trained, skilled and physically able employees results in significant impact on the productivity levels on site.
Another big challenge within the sector is the lack of trained and skilled employees, resulting in significant impact on productivity levels.
While fixing the labour shortage in the construction industry is no easy task, your workers cannot be more productive without the right type of skills to do so. Therefore it’s becoming more and more important to improve the productivity of the team you already have.
