AbstractThe UK built environment is constantly challenged with talent management issues that comprises of a multitude of individual areas effecting the construction industry and burdening many job roles including skilled labour, Architects, Engineers and Project Managers to build a huge housing programme, High Speed rail 2 (HS2), smart cities and many other key national projects. However, without the skilled labour, there will be subsequent implications including delays, rising costs and now the Coronavirus pandemic and the UK recession will inflate these factors further. The object of this review is to understand the key drivers to improve the talent management in the construction industry and therefore a critical review of the construction industry has been completed to understand how improvements can be made. Scopus and UK Government publications have been peer-reviewed and reported the drivers to improve talent management in the construction industry. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines were used to select eligible articles. After the full screening, 53 articles that met the criteria were analysed and used to identify 9 key drivers to improve talent management in the construction industry. The identified drivers to improve talent management are women in the workplace, intersectionality, young adults, disabled workers, employer responsibility management, aging workforce, retaining talent, industry 4.0 and construction sustainability. This identified that further research is required into each of these areas to allow the sector to improve the recruitment and retainment of employees.
