What contracts do you expect to win in the next year? What will your workforce look like next year?
Strategic forecasting is part of business, predicting skill requirements and planning talent acquisition appears to be top of the agenda in most built environment organisations.
We work collaboratively with HR and Operations to assess current and future competencies within their workforce, which is aligned to their yearly property development plan. The analysis identifies any skill gaps that could prevent future business targets and commitments.
The consequences of the talent shortage won't be fully realised until 2018. When it does, it will usher in a new reality of acute workforce challenges. Our skills benchmarking service is helping organisations highlight weak skill areas to develop a recruitment strategy dictated by their pre-build, build and post build workforce needs.
Knowledge and insight into workforce capabilities help companies to acknowledge current and future skill needs. Which skill disciplines will be weakened within your organisation due to employee retirements within the next 5 years? How will you bridge the skill gap? What skill gaps need to be bridged? How is innovative technology changing skill needs within the build environment? How will you identify skill strengths which can be shared amongst colleagues? If you can't begin to answer these questions, don't worry you are not alone, many organisations have similar reactions, that's where we can help.
