TALENT MANAGEMENT TRENDS WITHIN CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING
With the current construction and infrastructure boom, businesses using the traditional methods of sourcing talent through external agencies and advertising on job boards are losing the battle to find new talent in a decreasing talent pool.
The market will be demanding for the foreseeable future and with a candidate-short market driving increasing salaries, it is tough to keep up with the demands of competition to fill all the roles from external sources.
Companies who are seeing the most success are changing their approach, investing internally and looking for innovative ways to attract external candidates. From developing talent in their ranks through proactive talent and succession management to innovative retention and engagement strategies, they are reducing external agency spend and utilising those funds on Talent Management.
I have been part of developing the Talent Management Outsourcing (TMO) solution for Quinton Anthony and have seen how this drives success for clients nationally across the Construction and Engineering sectors.
- Saves you money – reduces external recruitment fees and ongoing cost savings
- Early and proactive sourcing for upcoming tenders and projects through talent pooling for key project roles
- Flexibility to dial up to manage short term demands for vacancies for upcoming projects
- Retain existing talent – regular talent mapping to develop internal shortlists and career development opportunities
- Use of technology - you retain the database and have manager access to view all recruitment activity
- Ensures quality – attract, retain and develop the best talent for your business.
