Engineering is crucial to national and global infrastructure and the industry needs a talent and skills strategy that responds to our fast-changing modern world

Technological change is rapid and the engineering sector is helping cities around the world to upgrade their infrastructure. Digital technology is also changing the design and delivery of engineering projects, as firms adopt innovative tools to run their businesses. At the same time, there is increasing pressure for the engineering sector to be part of a proactive response to environmental degradation and climate change as well as continued focus on improving workplace safety. Engineering firms must equip their workforce with the knowledge and skills to safely build the smart and sustainable cities of the future.

Talent shortage continues to be a global and protracted issue for the engineering sector and in a highly competitive environment, recruiting and retaining skilled workers is a priority. A training and personal development pathway for all employees is an integral part of a successful talent management and retention strategy.
