According to the data, the number of construction workers entering the industry decreased by 30% between 2005 and 2016.

Companies need to address common misconceptions like that the industry is somehow unstable or how you can’t earn a lot of money when compared to college-educated careers.

Many companies are looking to encourage more women into the industry and close the gender gap, the construction industry utilises less than 2% of all working women.

The labour shortage has forced the construction industry to innovate, the use of technology in construction is exciting and makes for a dynamic working environment. Tech such as Exoskeleton’s are already been used in the construction arena. Exoskeletons are wearable pieces of equipment that can be used to add strength or reduce injury and strain from repetitive jobs!

Would you wear tech to advance your job?
