CLC People Survey results
The results of the second cross-industry ‘People Survey’, carried out by Build UK on behalf of the Construction Leadership Council in September, provides an up to date snapshot of the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the construction workforce, which will help to prioritise support for employers in line with the industry’s Roadmap to Recovery.
The report suggests that employers are doing what they can to hold onto their people, having learned from the last recession the importance of keeping talent within the business wherever possible.
Whilst there is still expected to be a reduction of 4.2% in the workforce by December, the fall in the number of graduates taken on in September was less than anticipated and overall the number of apprentices employed is expected to increase slightly.
