New CIC survey aims to get insider’s view of construction sector

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) 2050 group has launched a major new survey to gain an on-the-ground perspective of the inspirations and challenges of working in the construction and built environment industry. 

The survey, Looking towards an evolving construction industry, invites professionals across all disciplines and of all ages and stages in their careers to participate and is aimed at providing an insider’s view of the perception and aspirations for a successful industry and working environment. 

Since the previous survey in 2014 there have been a number of major changes affecting the industry and this survey will provide a snapshot into current views around Brexit, climate change action and job satisfaction within the built environment. 

CIC 2050 group representative Eoin Burns said of the survey: “The last survey provided great insight into the industry and its people, what motivates them and what the concerns of the time were. Revisiting these questions and looking at new issues will help the industry to understand how we can continue to change the industry for the better. We hope the results of this survey will continue to provoke discussion and debate, and to highlight key areas for change and action. This is an important piece of work, depending on wide participation. We encourage everyone to participate.” 

The survey will enable individuals to express views on whether they find the built environment an inspirational industry to work in. It will also guide the 2050 group in its strategic planning for future activities and its findings will inform a report which will be circulated among senior industry figures and the main industry bodies via the Construction Industry Council. When completed, the report will be published and available free online to download. 

The survey closes at midnight on the Friday 21 July 2017. To take part click here.
