How are we helping with career development in the construction sector?
Careers in the construction sector can be long and fruitful. There are many different pathways into construction and a myriad of opportunities exist within the sector at all levels. Career development is something that anyone who has reached a certain level within construction on can focus on with the right tools and a supportive employer.
Professional career development
Strongly defined career paths enable people to move forward in their chosen profession. This isn’t something that only benefits individual employees but is also a process valued by employers. When workers advance in professional career development that tends to increase level of retention among staff and also deliver more value to the business as a whole in terms of what it can achieve. At RG Group this is something that we appreciate, which is why we have taken steps to enable all our staff to continue to develop and grow at every stage in their career.
Working in the construction industry
According to a recent study by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), 74% of those working in construction have progressed up through the industry. Most started out as employees, for example as apprentices or on graduate training schemes. Interestingly, more than a third of those who are working in construction told the CITB that they had never had to go through a period of unemployment, indicating just what a great prospect a career in construction really is.
85% of employees in construction have had access to training and development to help them move forward in their careers. Perhaps as a result of this, 80% of workers in the construction sector said that they were satisfied with their careers and happy to be working in the industry. Two thirds of those working in construction said it was an industry that was either “very good” or “quite good” with respect to the potential for career development.
