With the continued evolution of the global economy, emerging markets are constantly looking to attract the industry’s desperately needed talent. They present attractive migration career opportunities; providing candidates with comprehensive packages and exciting projects to be a part of. Unfortunately, this skills migration is having a detrimental impact to the skilled workforce talent pools in many of the developed regions.
This global race for talent is compounded by spend and investment levels recovering to pre-2008 levels in the West, with construction markets openly stating that wage inflation to retain talent and the widening skills gap is becoming the industry’s biggest challenge.
This widely publicised skills gap in the Built Environment sector, and the growing complexity of construction projects continues to create difficulties for Owners and Contractors when trying to attract the right talent, with Project Owners developing a greater dependence upon attracting a qualified and capable workforce for each project.
