Construction Sector

The construction sector currently faces many challenges not least in overcoming considerable skills shortages and recruitment challenges. For the period 2000-2010 forecasts indicate a massive staff turnover throughout the sector. Ironically the biggest demand for construction services is in the South-East and yet this is where the largest skills shortages exist.

Investors in People can help manage these issues and build a culture of continuous improvement. By building better communication channels, individuals have a clearer understanding of their role within the organisation and how they contribute to that organisation. This leads to an increase in motivation and morale which in turn leads to greater staff retention.
