Helping you understand and develop your workforce strategy

Diversity, training and skills, right to work, wellbeing, exploitation, fairness, inclusion and respect and employment conditions are common challenges faced by organisations and their supply chains. People issues are vast, yet all connected.

The School provides free, industry-endorsed CPD training and resources, guidance and toolkits to help address these challenges. It also provides a People Assessment and benchmarking tool to help identify strengths and opportunities for development of your workforce strategy.

Your people are your greatest asset and organisations with an effective workforce strategy benefit from increased staff retention, improved supply chain resilience, reduced risk, increased productivity and being seen as an employer of choice.

 

The workforce strategy for the built environment

 

The People Matter Charter was created to help organisations up and down the supply chain address these challenges together, in one workforce strategy. The Charter has eight commitments that can apply to any organisation, of any size.
