The Talent Challenge in Engineering and Infrastructure
It’s tempting to enter 2021 with blind optimism, eager to put the challenges of 2020 behind us. However, begin 2021 with a brief period of reflections is essential.
Rather than making a New Year’s Resolution this year, perhaps more can be achieved by reflecting on the challenges of 2020. How will those experiences shape 2021 and beyond?
From initially pausing to then accelerating projects throughout the year, to rapid advancements in energy technology, adaptation and learning were essential for engineering and infrastructure firms in 2020.
What can we learn from China significant rush of new solar installs in December 2020? Along with the need to deliver critical resources, stability, and community safety, 2020 brought firms the new challenge. That includes challenges from remote work and flexibility; which have been something less common in the industry previously. Reflecting on these changes has created the potential for a lasting positive impact across engineering and infrastructure firms globally.
What has 2020 taught us? What does the future of the workplace hold engineering firms? Will hiring still be the same? How can employers secure talent in this “new normal”?
At LVI Associates, these are the questions that have defined our daily conversations with clients, candidates, and our global workforce. Our new report, "2020 Reflections: Looking Back to Move Forward” examines the lessons of 2020, and which will help drive success in the year ahead.
