Webinar: Retaining Young Talent in the QS Industry

11:30am Wednesday, 22 November 2023
12:30pm Wednesday, 22 November 2023

From the Silent Generation to Gen Z.

From the Snail Mail era to the Instant Text Messages age.

From the taking off paper to the BIM application.

The generations of Quantity Surveyors (QS) have evolved enormously as a result of global technological change, and so too have the perspectives, perceptions and expectations that are directed towards our industry.

While the QS industry strives to attract and retain young talent, we must first seek to understand these young people and respond to their excitement, as well as address any concerns they may have in joining us. Are we ignorant of their career goals? Are we are not flexible enough to accommodate their requests? Or perhaps our young talent are simply asking for too much?

The purpose of this webinar is to examine these questions, and to create a platform for understanding that bridges the gap among our QS generations. We must be prepared to facilitate our young talent to excel and elevate to the next level in this industry, notwithstanding the continual transformation of the entire construction industry including the stakeholders’ critical development and demands.

We must begin to initiate healthy change. It’s now or never!
