Strong interest in talent retention scheme
Over 400 companies have signed up for the Construction Talent Retention Scheme, according to New Civil Engineer.
The programme, which is also backed by various industry bodies, is an online portal for skilled individuals to showcase their experience and expertise.
The free-to-use site allows the redeployment of staff at risk of redundancy and enables temporary employee secondment between businesses. It also gives displaced workers from other sectors a route to find new employment.
Construction Leadership Council co-chair Andy Mitchell added: “The Talent Retention Scheme is an important element of the Council’s recovery plan for the construction sector, offering an opportunity for the industry to keep the vital skills it needs to drive growth across the UK”.
