Building a capability pipeline.

This week I joined Roads Australia’s Capacity and Skills Workshop. Over 35 companies came together to rethink how the industry can close the skilled resource gap in order to meet the community’s future infrastructure needs.

This holistic collaborative approach appears to be an emerging trend that contrasts with traditional competition for skills resources. Instead of competing to attract or retain highly skilled people with big salary packages, industries are looking to collaborate to create a sustainable pipeline of talent for the future.
