On World Mental Health Day, Higgins Group plc has signed the Building Mental Health Charter to demonstrate its continued commitment to raising awareness of the mental health issues faced within the construction industry.
With the notable shortage of skilled workers in the industry and an aging workforce, there has never been a better time to look at starting an apprenticeship in the construction industry.
Leading contractor Higgins has become a silver member of Women into Construction. The organisation promotes gender equality in construction and provides bespoke support to women wishing to work in the industry. It also helps contractors with recruiting highly motivated, trained women that will help to reduce the skills gap and create a more gender-equal workforce.
