Attracting, growing and retaining talent can be a challenge and we know that for people to bring their best selves to work, they need to feel safe and valued.
This industry-wide survey is supported by BCITO and led by the Construction Sector Accord and Diversity Works is intended to help us better understand what’s currently happening in the construction sector and craft a roadmap leading to a stronger, higher-performing construction sector. This will expand the recruitment talent pool, and open pathways for more women, Māori, Pacific people, youth, and the neurodiverse to enter, progress, and stay in construction careers.
This is important research for the New Zealand construction sector, and your voice is crucial to help shape the future of the industry.
If you have already taken part in the survey, thank you – you have supported important research.
If you haven’t completed the survey, you still have time - in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19 this month, the closing date has been extended to 11.59 pm, Sunday, 5 September.
Two surveys make up the first step of this research: one for business owners and senior leaders and the other for team members.
Survey for business owners and senior leaders
Complete the survey for senior leaders in the construction sector then, share the team member survey link below with your people and encourage them to take part – this is designed to provide a top-down view of diversity in your organisation. Construction organisations that complete this survey can go in the draw to win one of two prizes, either a $750 Visa Prezzy Card or one customised workplace training course on Inclusive Leadership with Diversity Works New Zealand valued at $3,800.
Survey for team members
Take the anonymous survey for construction sector workers exploring your experience in the sector. This will ensure your voice is heard and that the knowledge you have will help to make the construction sector a better place to work. Everyone who completes this survey can go in the draw to win one of two prizes, either a $750 Visa Prezzy Card or an Apple iPhone SE.
Prize draw terms & conditions can be found within the surveys.
