At MID Group, we’ve grown as a flexible and dynamic, multi-national organisation. As a company with 25 years’ of experience in the construction, engineering and property sector, we’ve grown steadily to become one of the industry’s most effective and efficient companies. One which provides work for a large number of people.
MID Group growth
As founder and CEO of the MID Group, I always try to be aware of our influence on the industry and those who operate within it. As a diverse organisation, offering a wide range of construction, investment and development services, we continue to grow both in size and workforce – despite recent industry setbacks such as a shortage in skilled workers.
Skill shortages in any industry can be extremely harmful, both for businesses and the economy – and with a skills shortage threatening the construction industry. Many firms are being faced with the reality of project delays and other disruptions.
According to The Guardian, over 27,000 building projects in the construction sector could suffer within the next five years due to a shortage of skilled workers. As output in the industry fell by 4.3% in August, many companies have been encouraged to collaborate further to offer a variety of pathways to young people to ensure sustainable progression across the entire built-environment. Something which I, for one, support wholeheartedly.
Encouraging young people
When I founded MID Group, one of my main objectives was to develop and build an organisation which supports and encourages its staff, and that’s something I believe we’ve achieved with MID Group. With a permanent workforce in excess of over 1,300 employees across all of our specialised divisions, our multi-national company continues to encourage the brightest and best from the industry. Whilst skills shortages in the industry force us all to revaluate the way we recruit, I’m confident that the construction industry will continue to attract more and more young people. I’m certain MID Group will continue to be a home for up-coming talent and thought-leaders for years to come.
