Construction and engineering

The construction and engineering sectors continue to face pretty challenging conditions. It is therefore essential that they better leverage the potential competitive advantage of their people with a strong people focus and employer brand. Not only will this help them attract and retain talent, it can help them to win new customers and contracts. We have a strong track record of creating people programmes for clients in this field, including the likes of Amey, Taylor Wimpey, Osborne and Wood Group. We help them to address these and other challenges and improve business performance as a result.
