Embrace the next gen workforce

We need to plan for the skills and capabilities required by the New Zealand building and construction industry to futureproof the next generation workforce. 


This priority area explores how to:

  • Ensure the industry is seen as exciting and innovative, with strong career paths, and appeals to people who only know a tech-driven world
  • Support the education system to introduce new content or courses
  • Ensure the industry has the best people for each job, now and in the future

Measuring success

We want to achieve the following shifts:

  • Industry is regarded as one of the best employers in New Zealand
  • A clear, desirable career path for all workers
  • Increase in the number of professionals with capability in new technology and green building
  • Employers have a sufficient pool of appropriately skilled workers
