CIC 2050 Group survey aims to provide industry snapshot

18 June 2017 | By James Kenny

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) 2050 Group has launched a new survey to learn more about the practical challenges and inspirations of working in the construction industry.

The survey invites professionals across all disciplines and of all ages and stages in their careers to participate, and aims to provide 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 major changes affecting the industry – this survey will provide a snapshot into current views around Brexit, climate change action and job satisfaction within the built environment.

Eoin Burns, CIC 2050 Group representative, said: “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 CIC.

The survey closes at midnight on the Friday 21 July 2017. Click here to participate.
