We invest heavily in training, development and education. Globally we support 400 employees on trades, professional and academic programmes.



To hedge against skills gaps we are working with schools and colleges to inspire more young people to consider careers in construction. Through a combination of learning experiences and vocational guidance, our project teams help students make informed career choices by providing an exciting insight into the many different roles our industry offers.


At the same time we are investing in world-class education – not only to grow our own talent but, more broadly, to help build the skills our industry will need to meet future engineering challenges profitably and sustainably. 


Construction and engineering is still regarded as a predominantly male domain. Yet we cannot resolve the skills gap without addressing this imbalance. We must work harder to encourage diversity in all its forms – or risk seriously restricting the pool of talent we have to choose from.  


We recently began monitoring ethnic diversity through our employee profiling system. We also track gender ratios across the business – with particular attention on our high-potential talent programmes. 


Our employee engagement score is, in essence, a measure of how satisfied our people are in their jobs. We therefore regard it as a key indicator of our ability to retain talent. Every year we track this figure through our employee survey.
