The war for top talent in the building services industry is well underway, and companies are all seeking that special edge that will attract and retain top performers.
As we are all aware, the UK has been experiencing a serious skills shortage in recent years – particularly in the engineering sectors. In part, this issue as we know can be attributed to the lack of apprenticeships and opportunities for entry-level employees, and in part, it may be linked to the fact that our attitudes towards work are changing.
The skills shortage is deepening across the UK construction industry, with the possible implications of Brexit on the availability of EU workers still to be felt. All employers in the building or energy sectors need to be formulating a powerful, bulletproof recruiting strategy to attract and retain the best talent in the years ahead.
