An outlook of digital talent management: Construction industry perspective
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractSustainable Development Goals (2022) (SDG) including Goal 9-Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure sets out to enhance scientific research, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries and significantly increase access to information and communications technology. This links directly with the construction industry which suffers from a huge skills deficit that has notoriously delayed the overall construction programme, inflated costs and current employees are regularly changing jobs providing business with the inefficient task of searching for more labour and subsequently prohibits the sector from reaching its full potential. This is currently impacting numerous projects throughout the UK including the housing programme, HS2 and significant infrastructure upgrades. In parallel with this, there is a reluctance for businesses to invest in new technologies regardless of the United Nations and UK Government targets whilst other sectors progress digitally moving towards Industry 5.0. Subsequently, a stringent methodology has been used by using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis mechanism to ensure adequate sources of information were used to fully understand how the sector can progress and provide recommendations.
